Second time in Tigertown

Second time in Tigertown

Sophomore point guard O'Showen Williams first visited Clemson last spring with the Georgia Stars during a Big Shots Tournament.

He was back in town earlier this basketball season to see Clemson beat Wake Forest.

"They've got great spirit up there. It feels like they show you a lot of love and stuff like that. It's a great environment," Williams told CUTigers, during a recent interview.

Williams visited with Stratford Academy [Macon, Ga.] teammate Quintez Cephus, a 2016 guard who's been offered by Clemson.

The two joined forces earlier in the month after Williams transferred from First Presbyterian Day, which is also in Macon. He said the Clemson staff reached out to his coach there right before the move.

"When I was at First Presbyterian, where I transferred from, my coach said they wanted me to get up there for a game, but we never scheduled a time," Williams said. "Now that I transferred, they wanted me to come up there with Quintez, so that was my first time talking to them, after the game."

In addition to Clemson, Williams is drawing interest from a few other schools in the Southeast.

"Georgia is trying to recruit Quintez and me as a duo, a 1 and a 2. Xavier is recruiting us as 1 and 2, and Mercer, those are the schools that are right now, and Davidson, too," Williams said.

The 5-foot-10, 150-pound point guard has yet to pick up any offers.

As a sophomore at First Presbyterian, Williams was averaging 18 points and five rebounds per game.
