Nigel Williams-Goss is one of the top prep basketball players in all of the land, currently ranked 39th by rivals.com, and made his decision a year early on Wednesday by committing to the University of Washington, bringing another talent guard to Husky Nation.
That I will be heading the University of Washington!!! Very proud and excited to join #HuskyNation 🏀🏀🏀— Nigel Williams-Goss (@SOU_TeamGeneral) May 30, 2012
The 6'4" Williams-Goss, currently playing for Findlay Prep in Las Vegas, previously committed to UNLV back in 2010 when he was still a sophomore, but has had a change of heart by choosing UW. His other schools on his short list included Oklahoma, Harvard and UCLA. He and his family moved to Las Vegas from Portland, Washington.
Williams-Goss certainly comes with a lot of talent, but also with a lot of praise, such as UNLV beat writer Ryan Greene who's watched his play for years:
Williams-Goss is the most mature high school point guard I've watched in years. He'll provide great stability for Washington's program.— Ryan Greene (@ryanmgreene) May 30, 2012
