Pack shows interest in senior point guard

N.C. State is showing some interest in 6-foot senior point guard Vincent Williams of Homestead (Fla.) South Dade High.

South Dade coach John Herron said Monday that Wolfpack assistant Monte Towe is expected to visit on April 22.

"Monte has seen him play and Monte has had some friends look at Vincent," Herron said Monday.

Williams averaged 26.5 points and 6.0 assists per game last season.

N.C. State and Oklahoma had been showing the most interest in Williams, but the University of Georgia is moving very quickly.

Georgia contacted Herron on Saturday and flew in to watch a workout on Easter Sunday. The Bulldogs are trying to arrange a campus visit.

Alabama-Birmingham and St. Louis already have offered scholarships.

Herron said Williams needed to add strength, but is an outstanding shooter and scorer.

"He is quick," Herron said. "He can defend. He can score. He can get to the basket. He can break his man down. He can do everything you want a point guard to do, but he needs to get bigger and stronger."

If Duke was interested in this guy it would be a "Desperate Move", right Giglio?
