Ohio State signs forward from Georgia champion

COLUMBUS - Clark Williams, a 6-6 forward from Lilburn, Ga., has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball for Ohio State, Buckeyes coach Jim O'Brien announced yesterday.

Williams is one of four incoming freshman recruits for Ohio State for the 2001-2002 season.

Williams averaged 20 points and 8 rebounds a game for Berkmar High School, which won its second consecutive Georgia state championship last season and finished the season ranked ninth in the final USA Today rankings.

As a junior, Williams averaged 18 points and 7 rebounds a game. Berkmar went 30-2 his junior season and 29-4 last year.

Williams was a first-team all-state selection both seasons.

“We are thrilled Clark has chosen to play at Ohio State,” O'Brien said.

“He is a talented outside shooter. He is an athletic wing player with potential to become a good player.”

Williams joins Matt Sylvester of Cincinnati Moeller, Terence Dials of Boardman and Brandon Fuss-Cheatham of Blackhawk High School in Beaver Falls, Pa.
