Donovan Williams staying patient while coronavirus puts his recruitment on hold

Donovan Williams is one of the best players in Nebraska. And he has yet to choose where he will play in college.

The North Star all-state guard decommitted from the Huskers last December, opening the door for dozens of college coaches to contact Williams. He’s narrowed his search down to six schools, though his recruitment has been put on hold do to the ongoing threat of coronavirus.

“You know I’m talking to coaches over the phone, but I was supposed to be in Kansas State last weekend and Oklahoma State the weekend before and Texas on the 10th,” Williams said. “So it’s just like you know it’s hard to get a good feel for everything when that’s really what I’m trying to figure out is the relationships, like real relationships between me and the coaches and the players, so it’s kind of hard to get that over the phone.”

However, despite what Williams has seen from other recruits nationwide, he’s going to stay patient.

“Many players once they heard about the virus and how it’s kind of shutting stuff down, I’ve seen about 10 players commit right away. Like they felt like they needed to get it done right away, cause they didn’t know if they were gonna be able to take visits anymore and stuff like that, but I looked at the bigger picture. This gives me more time to look at these seven schools and evaluate them one-by-one. You know just take your time with it, don’t rush anything, there’s no rush – especially if they’re giving you the time.”
