Five-star senior Mark Williams has told Stockrisers.com that he will take his talents to Duke University and play under Coach K.

“Duke, it felt like the best fit for me and where I could as a person and a player,” Williams said.

The Blue Devils offered him after a really good summer with Boo Williams AAU. The offer was extended on April 28th and just two weeks later the entire staff went to Williams’ house for an in-home visit.

Williams said that a big part of the reason behind him committing was the pitch. “Knowing that they need bigs for next year, it made sense.” He also said that the staff showed him a lot of Wendell Carter tapes, in comparison to his game.

He has several ties to Duke as well, his sister Liz attended Duke University where she had a successful basketball career. In addition, Henry Coleman (AAU teammate) and Jalen Johnson (current HS teammate) are both committed to Duke.
