Kameron Williams, Class of 2013 guard, officially signs with Ohio State

Thad Matta takes advantage of 2012's early signing period and adds a Baltimore product scoring guard to the 2013-2014 team.

"Killa Kam" is officially an Ohio State Buckeye.

The Buckeyes have wheeled in their second signee of college basketball's 2012-2013 early signing period. The athletic department announced the signing of Kameron "Kam" Williams, a 6'3 170 pound off guard, from Baltimore Elite and Mount St Joseph's in Baltimore, Maryland. Williams also had offers from Miami, Marquette (who Ohio State infamously had the ultimately canceled Carrier Classic game scheduled against), Syracuse, and Wake Forest. Williams even visited Miami's Coral Gables campus the second weekend in September but elected to honor his commitment to the Buckeyes. After putting ink on paper, Williams (pending all NCAA requirements as expected), will be on scholarship for Thad Matta and company next season.

Williams is noticeably thin, but has been compared favorably to former Maryland Terrapin Juan Dixon. Even if he puts on another 20-30 pounds, he's going to struggle defensive at the collegiate level. It's going to take the right balance of dedicated, strength and conditioning, and coaching to turn Williams into anything more than an offense weapon.

Williams was a four star from all the major recruiting services and could be a potential off the bench scoring option from the moment he steps on campus.
