Kermit Davis and his staff have been traveling all over the country, recruiting here and there from high school four and five-stars to junior colleges all around the Southeast. Now, all that leg work is paying off with their third 2019 commit.

Junior college shooting guard Bryce Williams, who most believed was heading to Stillwater to play for Oklahoma State, has verbally committed to Ole Miss. The Daytona State College prospect picked the Rebels over offers from the Cowboys, Florida Atlantic, Florida Gulf Coast, and Louisiana Tech.

In 24 games at Daytona State last season, he averaged 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 34.9 percent from three-point range. The Tampa, Fla. native joins Rodney Howard and Antavion Collum in the 2019 class. For now.

Williams is still awaiting a ranking from 247Sports at this time.

How does he fit in?

The 6’3, 180-pounder jumps off the film. He is an explosive guard who can attack the rim but also do damage from the outside. His skill set is multi-faceted, giving him options to either be a spot-up guy from deep, take you off the bounce and attack the rim, or toss you in a blender and pull-up for a mid-range jumper.

He actually reminds me of Terence Davis after watching him play. And this will be greatly needed since T.D. is gone after the 2018-2019 season. Depending on how he meshes with Kermit’s system on defense, he could be a change of pace guy off the bench who pushes tempo and forces the issue on both ends of the floor. Either way, he is a nice compliment to this class and will be a fun one to watch develop with this staff.
