Lucas Williamson is a 2017 prospect that showed tons of potential with his play for the Illinois Wolves 15U. The freshman has good height at 6’2” for a young guard prospect. He is a well-rounded player that has a high IQ and good feel for the game. He passes it and can knock down mid-range jumpers.
We talked with him about how it went in July during the evaluation period.
“It went good. I played up with the 15U. It has been a lot of fun. We played games against good competition.”
What did he learn by playing up an age level?
“It helps with my basketball IQ because the game is a lot quicker. I am used to a slower game playing against the 14U. I have to pick it up a lot quicker. Everything is one more step up.”
The guard spoke about what he feels the best assets are in his game.
“For my height I can dribble the ball pretty well, shoot, and I think I am an all-around player. I can play the guard or the post.”
Williamson will be attending Whitney Young and is excited to be playing with some of the best players in the country.
“I am looking forward to playing at Whitney Young because they are one of the best high school teams in the nation. I am looking forward to getting more looks and go up against great competition out there.”
