Williams Accepts Offer; Signing Imminent

Southern Idaho's Jaison Williams took an official visit to Oklahoma this past weekend, and the 6-3 combo guard told JUCO Junction that he will sign with the Sooner program this week.
Williams visited OU from Apr. 18-20, and was tendered a scholarship offer from the Oklahoma staff. Once the paperwork arrives in Twins Falls, Id., from Norman, Okla., Williams will sign and become the newest member of the Sooner recruiting class.
"Everything is pretty much a done deal," Williams said. "They are sending me the papers and I will sign on Wednesday and send it to my parents to sign."
Oklahoma brought in both Williams and Seward County combo guard Donell Allick this past weekend. With the Sooners losing three experienced guards in Quannas White, Ebi Ere and Hollis Price, Oklahoma wanted to bring in an experienced junior college guard this spring.
Apparently, Williams fit the bill.
"The visit went well and I had fun," Williams said. "I got along very well with the team and everyone was cool."
Williams has roots in Big 12 country after spending his high school career in the state of Colorado. He signed with Xavier University out of high school, and played for the Musketeers during the 2001-2002 basketball season.
However, Williams decided that he needed a fresh start elsewhere, and transferred into CSI last fall. He averaged 14.6 points and 4.2 assists for the Golden Eagles, who finished 26-6 in 2002-2003.
"I am a combo guard who can play both the one and the two," Williams said. "I just want to come in and help the team in any way that I can."
Back in the fall, Oklahoma signed a pair of high school guards in Andrew Lavender and Lawrence McKenzie. Williams should come in and see time in the backcourt next year with the freshmen plus returning sophomore guard DeAngelo Alexander.
