Nigel Williams-Goss made it official and signed a letter of intent with Washington.
The 6-3, 180-pound point guard at Findlay Prep in Nevada is the second recruit to sign with the Huskies joining shooting guard Darin Johnson.
Williams-Goss is a consensus four-star prospect according to the major recruiting sites. Rivals.com ranks him 39th overall in the nation and ESPN has him 50th among its top 100 recruits.
Findlay Prep coach Todd Simon said Williams-Goss is the “consummate point guard.”
“He’s cerebral,” Simon said. “He understands the game. He has a knack for knowing when to push and pull it out, when to pass and when to do his thing. He’s great at setting up an offense. He’s demanding. He wants to win. He’s as competitive as they come.
“Defensively he’s a press player and is as good as there is in high school. He can really, really get after guys. He has a mentality that he wants to do that, to get guys out of offense. He’s a phenomenal help-side zone, which is something you don’t see a lot in high school kids. He’s also a good talker, constantly communicating. That’s something else you don’t see a lot of. He’s just a leader on and off the floor.”
Williams-Goss scored 33 points in Findlay’s season opener. He’s averaging 18 points and nine assists for 5-0 Findlay, which is ranked No. 2 nationally by USA Today.
