Nyree Williams, 6'1", 2009, Howard/Ellicott City, Maryland

Posted: 3/10/2008 11:42 PM

Nyree Williams, 6'1", 2009, Howard/Ellicott City, Maryland 


From Hoopgurlz.com's DC/MD/VA Forum, "Tarheels Sniffing..." thread.

"Sports fans, UNC loses 6'1" Erlana Larkins and 6'1" Latoya Pringle this year; 6'3" Iman McFarland and 6'1" Rashanda McCants next year; and 6'3" Jessica Breland the year after.

Meanwhile, they pick up 6'1" Laura Broomfield and 6'4" Chalysa Shegog for next year.

They lose five; and they pick up two, at the forward/center positions.

We all know that the Tar Heels live by the athletic 6'1"-6'3" combo-forward; the more they have on the roster, the better the team they always are.

It would make sense for them to offer Miss Nyree right now--most national-level observers see her as a Latoya Pringle-type of player, with more defensive versatility, more raw athleticism, and a bit of a nastier on-court attitude.

In addition, UNC had counted on getting 2008 All-American 6'2" Glory Johnson, who ended up signing with Tennessee. In other words, they didn't get her, and they'll have to play against her for the next four years--if they want to get to the National Championship.

So UNC will need two 6'1"-6'3" combo-forward blazers in the 2009-2010 classes.

At present, most likely 20+ Big East/ACC/SEC/Big Ten schools, plus A-10/Colonial powers Temple, George Washington, James Madison, and Old Dominion have either offered Miss Nyree, or are recruiting her hard. She'll probably attend the college of her choice for free."

Re: Recruiting Board 


With the down time until the tournament starts I would like to look at some of the recruits that we have signed.

It starts with Chay. If she is able to come in and adequately play the post that would free up Jessica Breland to play the 4 which I think she is much more suited to. We will not need a whole lot of scoring from her but if she is able to contribute rebounds and defense and blocked shots that would be a big plus.

She'la White is a big time scorer and shooter. I look for her to make our team the deepest and quite possibly the best in nation in the guard positions. Coach Hatchell was rumored to spend a lot of time in Phoenix and mentored by the Suns organization on how to effectively run a smaller line up. My feeling is that we will be able to run circles around most teams and effectively wear the other team down with constant pressure. She'la will make us so much harder to defend from the perimeter.

Candace Wood is a big wing who can consistenly knock down the 3 she has length and will solidify our wing positions. Look for her to spell Mccants and increase our 3 point shooting ability.

Laura Broomfield is a 6'1 3 or 4 player who was a top twenty recruit before she was injured. She constantly improved this year as she came back from her injury. She is the biggest unknown of the 4 but I think all might be pleasantly surprised. Just have to wait and see.

Re: Recruiting Board 


From IntelligentHoodlum, we have some good news out of MD.>
Posted: Today 12:32 PM
Nyree Williams, 6'1", 2009, Howard/Ellicott City, MD
..., has committed to play basketball for the North Carolina Tar Heels. An ultra-athletic, versatile combo-forward, who is a prolific shot-blocker and rebounder, and can defend all five positions at the high school level, Nyree chose UNC out of at least 20 of the 40 Big East, ACC, and SEC programs.
Most veteran observers see Nyree as a Latoya Pringle-type of player who can be a "slasher", too, for the Tar Heels, with more athleticism, and potentially more offensive and defensive versatility.
Nyree will be in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill from April 18-20, on the campuses of North Carolina State, Duke, and North Carolina, playing in the Deep South Classic tournament. She'll be playing 17U, with Team Unique.
Nyree is currently ranked #2 in the 2009 class--behind Tierra Ruffin-Pratt--in the MD/DC/VA region, by the Real Basketball Report scouting service.

Re: Recruiting Board 


With this season almost at an end I would like to examine how and who we may be looking at. Right now with the committ of Nyree this has provided a big lift to our inside and wing game.

I have a feeling that this will be extreamly big for us. Chay Shegog should be able to play both the 4 or five positions and if we were to get a legitamate post out of 2009 class we will be set with high quality depth at the guard and and inside positions.

People I dont think everyone realizes how close we are to being set for the next 4 years. Nyree in IMHO espiecially with the type of guards that she will be surrounded with should have a stellar career with us. It was hard to get a feel for her but in most articles I read about her she was constantly doubled and tripled teamed. Her team was not that good but Nyree played very well. She also possesses that desire to be the best she can be. Very very competitive with a stong will on the court.

If Laura Broomfield comes back adequately from her injury that will make us 2 deep at the 3 and 4 positions if we are able to get one more quality big. Coach really knows how to use her bench and these recruits insure us being able to play the Carolina brand of basketball we are used to.

With She'la White coming in teams will be very hard pressed to deal with the quality we will have at the guard position.

With us getting Nyree puts us on the fast track to recruiting 2009 seniors. The final pieces of the puzzle are coming together.

Everything is good in Tar Heel land as we have a great team now and have the possiblities of continuing to have great teams as more quality recruits come on board.

Re: Recruiting Board 


I saw Nyree in a televised game earlier in the seasn. I ws channel surfing and came across a girl's high school basketball game and watched the game. I had no prior knowledge of Nyree, but she really stood out on the court. While her offensive skills seemed a bit raw ner intelligence, competitiveness, and athletic ability stood out. She was easily the best athlete on the court (very quick, fluid, and strong)showing exxellent rebounding and shot blocking skills and was a destructive force on defense everywhere on the court with superior speed and quickness. As a person who loves track and field I can see her as an collegiate caliber sprinter and jumper. Probably a better athlete than anyone on this team and compares favorably to Latangela Atkinson.

Re: Recruiting Board 


To keep from thinking about tonite game too much I thought I would mention a few observations about our recruiting.

Our program likes certain kinds of players. When you look at national rankings you see a lot of players ranked ahead of our players sometimes. We recruit players that get up and down the court, are long, and are athletic.

In the scheme of things our staff may not recruit a player who is highly ranked because she may not be best suited to our system. Several of the posts were ranked ahead of Ms Shegog, but if you look at what coach Hatchell said is that we have the dominant high school post in land in her. If we read between the lines what this says is for us Ms Shegog is the best.

In our newest committ Nyree Williams we have a raw but very athletic PF who can really get up and down the court. She is the type of player who fits our system. That makes her more valuable to us than say a player who may be higher rated in some rankings but is not suited to our system.what excites me about her is her upside potential. I think after this spring viewing tournaments we may hear a lot more about Ms Williams.

I look for us to try and get 2 and at the most 3 more committs ( 3 would be a stretch) from the 2009 class. Over at HG they list 2009 recruits and what their talents are and who they were possible interested in. I have found that these lists are very fluid. Look at our team needs and then look at whats available to get an idea of who may become the next Tar Heel.

It makes for interesting conjecture and kinda takes away the anxiety of waiting for tournament games.

I felt so good about this script; wow!

Since Nyree is in the fold, I think that we need two big posts, now; or, a big post and TRP out on the wings!!

Who will they be? Bone, Dupree, Daniel or Bussie in combination with TRP?!

IH,
Did UNC actively recruit Azania Stewart? what is her skill set like?

For Nyree to be one of two Juniors makes her prospective ranking even more impressive. She has another year of development!! Will she likely grow?

The key is: where will TRP end up?

Re: Recruiting Board 


There seems to be a trend among colleges to get a good point guard and then put four interchangeable 5'10"-6'1" athletes on the floor and let the magic happen. The game against LSU showed once again that when you are forced into a half-court game that a back to the basket 6'5"+ big and a three-point shooter with a quick release are still an essential part of the game. It looks like Shegog will fill the big role in the near-term. Can Wood be one of the players to fill the three-point role?

Re: Recruiting Board 


Chay Shegog may get more playing time and even contend for a starting position. I think we will be a much better outside team next year. If we are able to balance the inside and outside game we could be dangerous.

Need to see what other 2009s choose Carolina. We all know we need a post as do most other schools in the nation. Nyree Williams fills a big hole.

One thing I have noticed is that recruits that come here although not as nationally recognized as some, have Stellar careers. Just ask Ms Pringle and Ms Charlotte Smith

Would love to see Ms Ruffin-Pratt in Carolina blue along with Ms Bone. Probalbly wishful thinking but hey I like to think big.

What are our chances with Ms. Ruffin-Pratt? I think that we have a great shot at landing her. IMHO, Ms. Bone would seem to be the least likely of the two. I would love to hear your thoughts, acasualfan.

Re: Recruiting Board 


With recruiting you never know. I would think we would be a good fit for Ms Ruffin-Pratt. IMO we are a post and a player like Ms Pratt from being set for the next 3 or 4 years and would definitely be a legitimate title contender.

At this level (although the number of good players is improving) the ability to recruit quality top ten highschool players is needed to remain on top.

We have an extreamely talented core of returning and new players and are just a player or 2 away from being right there with the Uconns and Tenns of Wcbb as far being able to challenge for a NC.

^ No joke, if she has anything close to her Dad's shot it would be WOW! I still think Al Wood had the best looking outside shot of any player ever to play at UNC and that covers a bunch of great shooters.

There is no telling what he might have done with the three point line of today. Same goes for Phil Ford.

Since the July evaluation period is quickly approaching I would like to just think back to this years incoming freshmen and let them all know we have not forgotten about you.

Most of them are or have been on campus this summer taking classes. More will be posted on these fine players as the season approaches. That will again be your time to shine.

Seeing our new players take the floor for the first time is always moving just as senior day is. As the 4 year journey begins it is over in a blink.

Best of luck to you all. Cant wait until November.

Re: Recruiting Board 



I think there is a lot of interest in the comings and goings of our recruits and team. Alot of people did not know and still dont know about Candace Woods injury. Fans want to know about this years Freshmen and next years recruits. Who official visit is coming up ect. I think that is newsworthy for this board. I think a lot of information is missed and readers would post more if information was available.

Right now everyone is waiting to see who will be wearing Carolina Blue from the 2009 class. The 2010 class is around the corner and the coaching staff is already recruiting them.

In order for this board to evolve and generate interest we need news. Most posters dont know a whole lot about recruits so that may be a good place to start. I post but only have so much information and sometimes what I post becomes redundent. If more was available I think a lot of our lurkers would post in. Good point UNCandme.

I felt so good about this script; wow!

Since Nyree is in the fold, I think that we need two big posts, now; or, a big post and TRP out on the wings!!

Who will they be? Bone, Dupree, Daniel or Bussie in combination with TRP?!

---------------------------------------------
Ode to TRP , '09 recruit:

I can wait! I tried and could not resist "team making." With this years haul of great position recruit added to the nucleus of '06/'07 we have potential championship teams if not now, beginning in 09--12. Our set of triplet bigs are better than any set of recriuts in the country certainly better than the quartet in offered as possibles in in the early spring late winter and they are not likely to play together on any same team now or in the future. Bone, Daniel, Dupree, and, Bussie are, potentially, very good to great players But I would not trade our bigs Warren, Rolle and Nyree for any three posts in the country in the same `class-on potential. Wow! (unless Bone and Reed hooked up, then I, still would not trade William, Warren and Rolle for any threesome in the country.

No matter if we get TRP in the 09 crop of recruits, UNC women are likely to be loaded with Waltia Rolle, Cierra Warren and Nyree W. and Krista G. coming, we can be 2 deep at all positions, as they will join: "It" and "Etc," leading our back-court in 09, along with Wood, White, Laura Broomfield, Jess-B, Trinity-B and Chay, and perhaps, Martina & Christina D., along with Nicole Powell. We will be big, tall,long, fast and athletic, with great flexibility, Plus defense and agility. I am looking at a great next three years ('08 included/ no injuries/ untimely departures)!!

Between Gross and Nyree we have the McCants/Little/ Atkinson defensive guard forward. When we add Wood we have 40 minutes of rapid transition offense as well. We will be solid in the post with Shegog, Rolle, Warren replacing Breland and McFarland (08) after 09.

With Cetera and Lucas, alternating with White, we are good for two to three years. We have one year with Jessica, Martina and Trinity before they yield to the 09 bigs, plus Chay. Trinity can be a nuisance big guard and small forward, especially, when the opposing team gets tired.

I am still hoping for Ms TRP-- she bring a doggedness to the back court and she can score; yet, we would have adequate if not sufficient depth and flexibility on the wings and in post were we to miss. She is the difference between FF and NC.

In '10, we need a swift pg with handles to push and range, although we will not have Cetera and Italee, thereafter, we will have She'la for another two years('11/'12). So we need a back up point recruited for '10/'11.

For '10 we need to have replaced Jessica with a solid back up post that would be able bring offense and boards. She boards, blocks and has Pringle range at the circle; we may need two posts to replace her, here. Chay seems to be the answer. if she is an adeuate forward that blocks and boards, that is great and we can wait to '11.

We need a wing-forward and/or combo guard-forward, like Nyree but to back her up and play defensive point-forward, like Little and La'Tangela did for us.

Assuming Waltia and Cierra can play Pringle and Jessica defensive roles, we should be fine through '11, especially, defensively. Shegog's got the offensive threat. Warren's will come. We should get plenty of second, even, third shots, if need be. Laura will replace McFarland / McCants at the 4, maybe some 3, if not this year certainly by '09.

My fondest hopes is that Candace W, and Laura B. fully recover from their injuries. Because of these uncertainties pressure is on KG to cover 30 minutes at the 2-3 positions without Candace/ Laura to replace McCants, offensively, after & during 08/09 and play solid wing to inside defense. these uncertainties here make me wish for TRP all the more. Chapel Hill is a great campus, too. TRP, bring your came to the Hill. TRP There is not much not to like in your game: playing three four positions on defense-which makes you a Nyree bookend on the wings for 25-40 minutes/ game.

Assuming Candace, Krista, Nyree & Nicole ('10) will hold down the two-three positions (through '12), We need to search for 2 point/combo guards in '10/11 classes to replace /back up She'la (through '12). (Nyree might just become our mvp on defense, playing three to four positions. We need another one, down the road.)

We are flexible in the back court with defense to offense coverage with Cet, She'la and Italee, supported by Wood and Gross (through '11). There are few weaknesses here unless Candace & Krista does not want to play defense or hustle(??).

TRP, will you join us on this quest!?

I see great speed on both sides of the ball, great team defense and some real hustlers. I see great coverage and prowess; and I see better outside shooting, beginning in '09, if not '08. All these recruits look to be team players through '11-'12.

By then, I am looking for two, possibly, three NCs! What a dream team in blue heaven!!

Re: Recruiting Board 


She has done it. TRP is a Tar Heel and we will contend for national championships 09-12. We have to play the games, of course.

All I have said before is in the realm of possibilities.

We have established our program as a national force From the Atlantic seaboard, from the Bshamas via Texas,, to Nevada to California we have arrived. Now we need to build upon this start. We have gotten top ten players in each class over the past four years plus Lastta, Larkins and Little. Now we need winners who know how to win big games against UConn, Tenn and now, and again, the Baylors, Rutgers, Stanford and Cal as well as ACC pretenders(09 and beyond).

What do we need to do to remain competitive?

Play tougher opponents out of conference and cut down on our turnovers while playing our game. We must take care of the ball. That is the key for the program, staff and team, respectively.

Welcome to the Hill, TRP and the rest of this great class- whose members are known to us!!

IH noted:

"Nyree Williams, 6'1", Howard/Ellicott City, Maryland
- ranked #2 in 2009 class, Real Basketball Report MD/DC/VA scouting service
- long, tough, ultra-athletic SF/PF; raw skills, but finds a way to score in the post against much bigger/taller players; can spot-up/off-the-dribble shoot out to 3-point range; can defend all five positions; w-a-a-a-y above the rim, and is a shot-blocking and rebounding machine
- relevant ACC schools supposedly on her list: Virginia, Wake Forest, Florida State, UNC"

I felt so good about this script; wow!

Since Nyree is in the fold, I think that we need two big posts, now; or, a big post and TRP out on the wings!!

Who will they be? Bone, Dupree, Daniel or Bussie in combination with TRP?!

---------------------------------------------
Ode to TRP , '09 recruit:

I can wait! I tried and could not resist "team making." With this years haul of great position recruit added to the nucleus of '06/'07 we have potential championship teams if not now, beginning in 09--12. Our set of triplet bigs are better than any set of recriuts in the country certainly better than the quartet in offered as possibles in in the early spring late winter and they are not likely to play together on any same team now or in the future. Bone, Daniel, Dupree, and, Bussie are, potentially, very good to great players But I would not trade our bigs Warren, Rolle and Nyree for any three posts in the country in the same `class-on potential. Wow! (unless Bone and Reed hooked up, then I, still would not trade William, Warren and Rolle for any threesome in the country.

No matter if we get TRP in the 09 crop of recruits, UNC women are likely to be loaded with Waltia Rolle, Cierra Warren and Nyree W. and Krista G. coming, we can be 2 deep at all positions, as they will join: "It" and "Etc," leading our back-court in 09, along with Wood, White, Laura Broomfield, Jess-B, Trinity-B and Chay, and perhaps, Martina & Christina D., along with Nicole Powell. We will be big, tall,long, fast and athletic, with great flexibility, Plus defense and agility. I am looking at a great next three years ('08 included/ no injuries/ untimely departures)!!

Between Gross and Nyree we have the McCants/Little/ Atkinson defensive guard forward. When we add Wood we have 40 minutes of rapid transition offense as well. We will be solid in the post with Shegog, Rolle, Warren replacing Breland and McFarland (08) after 09.

With Cetera and Lucas, alternating with White, we are good for two to three years. We have one year with Jessica, Martina and Trinity before they yield to the 09 bigs, plus Chay. Trinity can be a nuisance big guard and small forward, especially, when the opposing team gets tired.

I am still hoping for Ms TRP-- she bring a doggedness to the back court and she can score; yet, we would have adequate if not sufficient depth and flexibility on the wings and in post were we to miss. She is the difference between FF and NC.

In '10, we need a swift pg with handles to push and range, although we will not have Cetera and Italee, thereafter, we will have She'la for another two years('11/'12). So we need a back up point recruited for '10/'11.

For '10 we need to have replaced Jessica with a solid back up post that would be able bring offense and boards. She boards, blocks and has Pringle range at the circle; we may need two posts to replace her, here. Chay seems to be the answer. if she is an adeuate forward that blocks and boards, that is great and we can wait to '11.

We need a wing-forward and/or combo guard-forward, like Nyree but to back her up and play defensive point-forward, like Little and La'Tangela did for us.

Assuming Waltia and Cierra can play Pringle and Jessica defensive roles, we should be fine through '11, especially, defensively. Shegog's got the offensive threat. Warren's will come. We should get plenty of second, even, third shots, if need be. Laura will replace McFarland / McCants at the 4, maybe some 3, if not this year certainly by '09.

My fondest hopes is that Candace W, and Laura B. fully recover from their injuries. Because of these uncertainties pressure is on KG to cover 30 minutes at the 2-3 positions without Candace/ Laura to replace McCants, offensively, after & during 08/09 and play solid wing to inside defense. these uncertainties here make me wish for TRP all the more. Chapel Hill is a great campus, too. TRP, bring your came to the Hill. TRP There is not much not to like in your game: playing three four positions on defense-which makes you a Nyree bookend on the wings for 25-40 minutes/ game.

Assuming Candace, Krista, Nyree & Nicole ('10) will hold down the two-three positions (through '12), We need to search for 2 point/combo guards in '10/11 classes to replace /back up She'la (through '12). (Nyree might just become our mvp on defense, playing three to four positions. We need another one, down the road.)

We are flexible in the back court with defense to offense coverage with Cet, She'la and Italee, supported by Wood and Gross (through '11). There are few weaknesses here unless Candace & Krista does not want to play defense or hustle(??).

TRP, will you join us on this quest!?

I see great speed on both sides of the ball, great team defense and some real hustlers. I see great coverage and prowess; and I see better outside shooting, beginning in '09, if not '08. All these recruits look to be team players through '11-'12.

By then, I am looking for two, possibly, three NCs! What a dream team in blue heaven!!

Re: Recruiting Board 


Mark it down. Our 2009 recruiting class is our best ever. No game have been won yet but battles to put us in contention have definitely been won over the last four years.

I finally feel UNC can be called a traditional WCBB power. GO TAR HEELS!!!!

The very first time I saw the Lady Tar Heels play (against Duke) in January 2006 you could not tell me that they weren't. They rose to #1 in the AP polls right after that game. In addition, they didn't just beat UConn that December but "beat UConn up" that season.:-)

That was just the beginning and look at this class coming in now....GO TAR HEELS!!!
