Four-star prospect Curtis Williams Jr. out of Bloomfield Hills (Mich.) Brother Rice tells On3 he’s down to six schools — Florida State, Alabama, Xavier, Notre Dame, Seton Hall, and Tennessee State.

Williams also received offers from Maryland, VCU, Tulane, Toledo, and others.

The 6-foot-6 small forward is ranked as the No. 52 overall prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Williams has unofficially visited Notre Dame and Tennessee State. He will begin setting up official visits in the next couple of weeks.

Williams talks finalists

Florida State: “(Leonard Hamilton) is one of the best coaches in college basketball. He sends players like me, small forwards, to the league almost every year. They know how to develop players and that’s a big key and what I look for.”

Alabama: “They’ve been recruiting me since my freshman year and have always been consistent. I think if I went there, their playstyle matches mine because they love to get up and down, shoot threes, and defend.”

Xavier: “They just got a new great coach. They’ve been recruiting me probably the hardest also. It’s a great program.”

Norte Dame: “Notre Dame has been building a great connection with me since the beginning of my sophomore year and its a great program. When I went on my unofficial visit, I loved it. What they’ve done with Blake Wesley is impressive so they’re pretty high on my list.”

Seton Hall: “Great new pickup in Shaheen Holloway for their coach! They have a chance to build something special there.”

Tennessee State: “It’s an HBCU and their basketball program has gotten extremely better over the years. My uncle went there and considering them is big to him and me.”
