Talique Williams (5’ 8, PG, Harris County, 2020) was the youngest player in attendance, but that did not stop him from having a strong showing. The cat quick point guard, who was named 1st Team All-Region as a freshman this season, plays with a maturity beyond his age and is a very good distributor. With continued development, he has a chance to be a really special player.
