Junior center picks West Point

According to the Naples Daily News, 6-foot-8 junior center Austin Williamson (Naples, Fla./First Baptist Academy) committed to join the Army basketball program earlier this week.

Williamson was garnering interest from Florida Gulf Coast but the Black Knights were the first school to offer him. He averaged 15.0 points, 11.0 rebounds and nearly three blocks per game this season.

"It's an accomplishment," Williamson told the paper. "Everyone is telling me I committed way too early without visiting the campus. I just felt God opened a door for me at West Point and it's the right choice."
