Harrison Central Basketball’s Carlous Williams signs with PRCC
Carlous Williams is a name that’s been tied to high-profile college basketball recruitment for several years. Today, the Harrison Central big man finally made his future at the next level official.
Formerly, a South Carolina commit, Williams actually putting pen to paper with Pearl River Community College, where he’ll join a Wildcats program that’s won 89 out of its last 100 games over the last four seasons.
As an NCAA non-qualifier, Williams will be an immediate impact player for PRCC, just one season removed from back-to-back bids to the NJCAA National Tournament.
Having been on varsity since his freshman year, the 6’6” forward dominated the paint and the rim during his time as a Red Rebel to the tune of more than 1,000 career points.
Alongside younger sister Khalia, Williams says he’s hungrier than ever to make good on those division I dreams. “It means a lot with me being the first person in my family to go to college and kind of graduate high school, so me just trying to set the standard for the generation behind me – like with my sisters and stuff – so it feels great. Knowing that I can still compete at the top level and still have a chance to go to a Division I school is still good. I guess knowing that I came up just short of where I needed to be is going to push me harder to do what I need to do.”
Williams closed out his Harrison Central career with back-to-back trips to the Final Four 6A playoffs.
He’s listed as a three-star recruit and Mississippi’s second ranked prospect according to 24/7Sports.
