Kansas State Wildcats
As Coach Jerome Tang knows, Kansas State is going to need as much talent to compete in the Big 12. So far, the success from last season hasn’t paid off too much on the recruiting trail, so they’ll have to keep relying on the portal for more additions.
Tylor Perry (15.7 ppg and 5.4 apg) will be gone after this season, while Camryn Carter (16.2 ppg) has one more year left if he decides not to go pro. Without knowing what the future holds for Samford transfer Ques Glover and his health, the Wildcats could be in a position to take a chance on Williams. They wouldn’t have gotten him out of high school but this would be a nice opportunity for the program.
Guard issues are why the Terps have been struggling this season, with the exception to star guard, Jahmir Young. However, he’ll be gone after the year and there isn’t another option on the current roster unless they’re prepared to give the keys to freshman DeShawn Harris-Smith after this season.
It’s certainly a high-risk high-reward scenario for Coach Kevin Willard, especially if there’s some heat on him if things don’t get better in the next couple of months. But if Julian Reese doesn’t come back for his senior year, Maryland is going to have to add a ton of talent next offseason. Williams likely would be a talented pickup that wouldn’t take much to get.
