Williams Commits to NEC

There is no debating the sheer athleticism and basketball skill that Nashua North’s Javon Williams possesses. He is arguably the most athletic player to come out of New Hampshire since Jordan Laguerre. He was a four-year varsity player for the Titans and was an all-state player this past season as a senior. And now he’s made his college decision, as Williams has committed to attend and play basketball at New England College.

NEC is a Division III school in Henniker, NH which competes in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC). NEC head coach Charlie Mason will be entering his 10th season at the helm. The Pilgrims didn't have any NH players on their roster last winter, as they recruited a lot of kids from outside of New England (their roster included players from Florida, Utah, California and North Carolina).

Williams is a 5-foot-11 combo guard who excels when playing an up-tempo style of play. That is how Nashua North played and that’s how his Mass Rivals AAU teams played as well. He looks to get out and run, and can lead or finish on the break. Williams has great quickness, can play above the rim and with his athleticism and body control he can sky up for rebounds and make finishes inside that most kids simply cannot make. Williams makes explosive drives to the rim, can hit the outside shot and can also play intense pressure defense in the half court or on the press.

NEC went and in 7-19 in 2011-2012, but they had five freshman and only 2 seniors. Williams should have an opportunity to get minutes right away, and he will be able to stay close to home for college as well. We congratulate him and wish him the best of luck at the next level.
