Hofstra lands post-grad SF Rich Williams

Class of 2013 small forward Rich Williams (Brooklyn, N.Y./Vermont Academy) verbally committed to Hofstra on Monday, according to ESPN RecruitingNation coordinator Adam Finkelstein.

Williams graduated from Transit Tech (N.Y.) last spring and decided a post-graduate year would serve him well from a recruiting standpoint. He chose the Pride over St. Bonaventure, Kent State and St. Peter's.

He joins SG Gervelle Kidd (Chatham, Va./Hargrave Military) and Amadi Udenyi (Oakland, Calif./St. Thomas More) in Hofstra's 2013 class.
