Madison Williams makes ARC instant contender (Preseason post 2 of 30)

See why I think Madison Williams makes Richmond an instant contender.            

"He plays hard. He's tough. He has a basketball IQ.  He's skilled. He's a great teammate." These are the phrases college coaches use to describe some of their favorite qualities in high school hoops prospects. But in my experience, raw athleticism is one attribute that is distinct, and maybe more valuable than all the rest in the eyes of a collegiate coach. The ability to create space off the dribble and score above the rim is cherished at the "next level." So it's no surprise that Richmond Academy, the new home of senior Augusta Christian transfer Madison Williams, has been busy with visits from division 1 coaches. Williams is one of three area players with scholarship offers already this fall.

Senior transfer Madison Williams makes Richmond Academy an instant favorite.

Williams' athleticism and solid shooting stroke will help enable Richmond Academy to compete for a spot on top of the local hoops leaderboard, both in region play and in the unofficial race for bragging rights as the area's best team.  Coach Steve Nobles's Musketeers return solid inside play, including center Nick Roberts (6'7" senior).  Williams would instantly make almost any area team a contender. But Roberts and others give Madison a head start at his new home.
