Local high school girl’s basketball phenom Ronni Williams announced that she will play her college ball at the University of Florida in Gainesville next season.
Williams picked the Gators over Florida State and Georgia. She also could have went to defending national champion Baylor or the storied program Tennessee. Williams had offers from many of the nation’s top programs.
The Atlantic high school 6-2 senior forward/guard is the top girl’s basketball recruit in Florida and 13th in the Nation. She is also an ESPN Rise All-American and is expected to make it as an McDonald’s All-American this season.
Last season Williams averaged 20.5 points, 11 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.9 steals and 2.7 blocks per game for the Sharks.
Williams now will concentrate on her senior season as the Sharks are expected to make a run at a state title. They are two years removed from a Final Four appearance.
