Top 2020 Hoops Target Terrance Williams Talks Notre Dame Official

May 7, 2019

Terrance Williams had to wait a bit to land his scholarship offer from Notre Dame, but the 2020 forward from Washington, D.C. didn’t waste much time setting up an official visit to South Bend once he got it.

After receiving the Irish offer back on April 23rd, Williams took that official to Notre Dame this past weekend.

“It went really well,” the 6-foot-6, 210-pounder told Irish Sports Daily afterward. “It was a good experience going up there. I want to thank Coach (Mike) Brey for everything. It was fun. It was definitely fun up there with Prentiss (Hubb), my former point guard. It was a great visit.”

Williams attends the same Gonzaga College High School that Hubb, the Irish’s point guard, also attended.

“They were in exam week,” he continued. “I got to get a campus tour, but the students were mostly studying. I did get to hang with Prentiss and some of the team.”

Williams felt like people he met were the kind of people he could fit in with.

“They have a brotherhood, especially on the basketball team,” he explained. “They’re definitely funny. They treated me well while I was up there.”

He enjoyed the opportunity to play pickup ball with the guys on the court.

“It felt good,” Williams said. “It’s definitely different from high school basketball of course. I think they have great chemistry. I was on Prentiss’ team and with the other guys, we definitely played off each other well. I think I would fit right in.”

Brey told Williams he reminded him of one of his recent great players.

“Coach Brey talked about how I’m a big priority for them, how he wants me to come in and play soon,” Williams recalled. “He compared me to Bonzie Colson in how we both play in the offense. We’re not just position players, we play multiple positions. That was his main pitch.”

Williams also got to hear pitches from multiple alumni who were on campus.

“They talked to me about Notre Dame and how I could come in there and help change the program,” he said. “Hearing it from alumni definitely made it feel good because you know they’re in the network of the basketball community.”

He was impressed by the campus – “It was a very, very beautiful campus” – as well as the educational opportunities at Notre Dame.

“It was a good academic pitch,” Williams explained. “I want to study Business and Finance. I met with one of their teachers and he was great. His presentation was great and I was definitely persuaded.”

Williams has already taken officials to Stanford and Virginia, leaving him with two remaining.

“I haven’t scheduled anything yet. I’m trying to get these exams out the way before I go in the summer,” he said.

Notre Dame certainly made its best case this past weekend.

“I learned everything I needed to know. It was a good weekend. I got to see everything I needed to see.”
