Cody Williams leads On3’s latest top 150
The Colorado Buffaloes men’s basketball team is playing possibly its final games of the season this week in the Pac-12 Tournament.
The CU women are headed for the NCAA Tournament, but the men need a miracle run in Las Vegas to punch their ticket.
Nonetheless, the future of basketball is bright in Boulder, especially with the hype surrounding Cody Williams, one of the top players in the upcoming class. Williams was even considered as a potential second-overall pick in the 2024 NBA draft, and it will be fascinating to see what he can do.
On3 compiled a list of the 150 class of 2023 prospects and Williams was on top of a very impressive group of names:
