Kameron Williams has committed to attend and play basketball at Ohio State.
Thad Matta landed his second recruit for the 2013 Ohio St. Buckeyes recruiting class, as guard Kameron Williams has committed to attend and play basketball at Ohio State.
Just last week, Williams was set to commit to the University of Miami, but took some advice from his father.
"He told me to wait to see another realm of the college atmosphere," Williams said. "He wanted me to see how another school does things so I can gauge the similarities and differences."
So Williams held off on pledging to Miami after making an official visit there, met Ohio State coach Thad Matta during an in-home visit last Wednesday and moved up his official visit to the OSU campus to last weekend.
"They showed me what a big-time atmosphere is all about," said Williams, who attended the football game against California in Ohio Stadium and was struck by how many people were there."
Williams is the second recruit to commit to Ohio St. for the 2013 class, joining Marc Loving.
Williams is a 6'3 guard from Baltimore, and should be an exciting player to watch for the Buckeyes in the coming years.
