My name is Sonwabile (Sonny) Williams. I am a 6'0”, 155 lbs. incoming sophomore. I attend Notre Dame Prep High School in Niles, Illinois. I play point guard and shooting guard on the varsity team at my school. I made the varsity team as a freshman. I also play AAU basketball for Illinois Wolves. I made the 14U team at the age of 13. Last year I was promoted to 15U and won the starting point guard position. I work hard to balance rigorous academics with both school and AAU basketball. COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted my GPA last schoolyear, but I am determined to drastically improve it in the upcoming schoolyear.
As a basketball player, I am a hard and diligent worker. I will not be outworked in training, or in the games. On offence, I can beat almost anyone off the dribble, I can shoot from anywhere on the court, and I am a prolific passer. During the latest runs I have been averaging 10 assists per game. Though my offensive skills make the highlight reels, my defensive skills earned me recognition by many coaches since I began playing basketball in 5th grade. I always manage to get several rebounds, steals, and charges in every game. Opponents guarded by me end up with low scoring percentages. However, I believe my number one asset is my basketball IQ. I study the game by watching a lot of film and I work with a personal coach to continuously improve my understanding of the game time situations and to make better, quicker decisions on the court. My goal is to play highly competitive college basketball. I am 100% committed to this goal and my family is supporting my efforts in every way possible.
