Latavious Williams, a 6-foot-7 basketball forward from Christian Life Center in Humble, Texas, on Tuesday chose Memphis over Kansas State, Oklahoma, Baylor, Georgetown and Florida International.
The five-star recruit is Rivals.com’s No. 17-rated player nationally in the Class of 2009.
“With Memphis, it is close to home where his friends and family can watch him play, and coach (Josh) Pastner has been recruiting Latavious from day one,” Scooter Owens, Williams’ AAU coach, told Rivals.com.
New York prep sensation Lance Stephenson remains the only remaining five-star player still uncommitted. Florida is making a late bid for the 6-foot-6 Stephenson, who is also considering Maryland, Arizona and Memphis.
