With thunderous applause from his Patriot teammates and friends, Jackson Prep senior guard Josh Williams made his commitment official to Lipscomb University by signing the dotted line becoming a Division I basketball player.
"It's definitely a blessing to sign a D1 scholarship. Glad I got a chance to accomplish that with my time at Prep and just want to thank all the people that made it possible," said Williams.
It was Josh's highlight reel style of play that began attracting college recruiters. He had offers from Division II schools and junior colleges at first but D1 programs entered late and that's when Lipscomb came knocking.
"Nashville is a great place to be. I felt like it's the right place," Williams said.
