UConn signee Christyn Williams named winner of Morgan Wootten Award

UConn signee Christyn Williams has won her second major national high school player of the year award.

Williams was named the winner of the Morgan Wootten Award, the award given out by the organizers of the McDonald's All-Americam Game.

Williams averaged 26.8 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.3 blocked shots as a senior at Central Arkansas Christian.

Williams, a 5-foot-11 guard, averaged 39 points, 15 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 2 steals and 1 blocked shot in three games in the Arkansas 4A state tournament highlighted by a season high 42 points in a 68-57 win in Friday's state title game.

Williams was previously named the winner of the Naismith national player of the year award.

In the take it for what it is worth department, a story in the Sydney Morning Herald lists Australia's Ezi Magbegor as a UConn commit. I haven't seen any reports that she has committed to UConn nor do I have any information that is the case but to say Magbegor and her family have kept a low profile in the recruiting process would be an understatement to say the least. I've made multiple efforts to get updates on her recruiting process through officials in Australia without success. I would think a commitment, if it hasn't already been made, should be coming shortly. She visited UCLA and UConn late last month.
