With nearly double-digit offers between them, Henry Ford Academy’s 6-8 junior Trevion Williams and Wayne Memorial’s 6-3 junior Rashad Williams had two of the bigger reputations coming into the 12th-annual Bank Hoops All-State Camp.

Trevion Williams is a unique player in the state between his size and passing ability. He got assist with Kevin Love style outlets, from the blocks and the other way around, or off the dribble. He also had some hockey assists, playing a step ahead and initiating the offense. He also shoots it well to 20 feet. Not quite a generic stretch 4 because of his drive game and he has the chops to horse guys around the hoop is he so chose. Yet still in the stretch 4 genre as he’s more comfortable playing away from the basket than rim running and burying his man on the other end. Williams has offers from MSU, Xavier, Illinois, Detroit, UNLV and DePaul, and recently had Wisconsin in for a workout.

Rashad Williams has offers from Cleveland State and EMU. His most readily apparent D1 skill is how he creates separation with the dribble. Can stop and elevate from the perimeter and extend and finish over defenders at the hole. Recognized mismatches and posted up smaller point guards. While he can go on scoring benders he showed both sides of the offensive coin. They didn’t always connect but Williams was a willing passer coming off of screens, pushing the ball on the break or driving and pitching to three-point shooters.
