Christian Shaun Williams 6’1 181 2023 Kecoughtan High School, Hampton VA
Shaun has a strong, physical frame with good quickness and incredible body control. He uses long strides attacking space and he can operate at different speeds in an impressive manner for a player with his physical profile. His physical attributes aside, and they are impressive and substantial, it is his ball handling and passing skills, his court vision and awareness that really make him one of the most impressive prospects in Virginia’s 2023 class. He’s a matchup nightmare as he can bully smaller guards, he is too quick and creative with the dribble for most bigs and he is savvy enough to recognize matchups and exploit them. Shaun is more of a downhill guard and knows how to use the leverage created by his length and strength and use his off hand and attack angles to beat his man. He uses hesitations and crossovers nicely, changes speeds impressively and gets downhill quickly showing a nice burst. Once downhill it’s a wrap! He gets a full head of steam and attacks the rim fearlessly finishing with a combination of power and creativity. A punishing finisher probably describes him best. He protects the basketball nicely and gets his shots off against bigger defenders as a result. He can hit the catch and shoot jumper at a good rate and does a good job on one and two dribble pull-ups demonstrating sound shot mechanics. Shaun can defend multiple positions, has very good footwork and lateral mobility. He rebounds the basketball and shows excellent instincts off the ball. While his physical prowess is an effective asset Shaun possesses the athleticism, versatility and skill that makes him elite in his class. Highly regarded on and off the court Shaun carries a 3.7gpa showing the same work ethic in the classroom that makes him one of Virginia’s brightest up and coming stars on the court!
