Williams signs with Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Nick Williams, Alabama's prep basketball player of the year, has signed with Indiana.

The 6-foot-5 guard from Mobile's LeFlore High School had originally signed with Marquette in the fall, but he was let out of his commitment and followed when coach Tom Crean left Marquette for Indiana.

He chose the Hoosiers over Arkansas, Kansas State, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech and Alabama.

Williams averaged 21 points per game as a senior and earned All-State honors after leading LeFlore to the Class 6A state semifinals.
