Class of 2015 Chicago Simeon star D.J. Williams has given a verbal commitment to play his college basketball for the University of Illinois.
Williams, a 6'7 small forward, currently rates as the #3 overall prospect in the Illinois Class of 2015 and also ranks among the top 2015 prospects nationally.
“I just love that school,” Williams said of Illinois in a Chicago Sun Times report.

Landing Williams gives the Illini basketball program another momentum boost as they continue to pursue Curie's Cliff Alexander, who is due to announce in less than two weeks.
Williams competes on the travel team circuit with Meanstreets.
