Rivals Updates Rankings: Williams Sees Bump

New, 14 comments

I know, Rivals isn't the greatest for basketball (in fact, they're probably the worst of the big three), but they're the first of the three major services to update their final rankings. Unsurprisingly, Jordan Williams saw a pretty sizable jump up.

Williams used to be a three star prospect on Rivals, but was upped to a four star and is the #85 player overall (#25 PF). Terrell Vinson, by comparison, is currently #90.

I expect Williams to see a similar jump when Scout and ESPN update their rankings (I believe ESPN already updated the top tier, but not the lower levels). He really exploded his senior year. It looks like the Terps are getting a great baller. FWIW, he is currently not qualified, so there's always some chance for heartbreak, but it's supposedly looking pretty good.

Regardless of whether the Terps bring in Vinson, the class is shaping up to be pretty good. Like most Terp fans, I've given up on Lance, but if GV stays and the freshmen work out, it could be a very good season next year.
