Williams was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year after averaging 11.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.8 blocks. He was also a finalist for the Naismith Defensive Player of the Year, and ranked fifth in the country in total blocked shots (110).
The 7-foot-1 center boasts a 7-foot-5 wingspan and has the skills every team covets on defense between his ability to control the paint and rebound. He is widely projected to be a lottery pick and should be able to help fortify teams’ frontcourts at the next level.
