Williams can penetrate and kick or drive draw and quick to find the open man on a regular basis. He can also knock down the mid range pull when he has enough area to create space in order to get off the shot.
Williams is a strong and physical big body wing player. He is a terrific multiple position defender and good rebounder on both ends of the floor. He sprints the wing in transition and is strong enough to finish through contact. Williams was great in the first session of the Sweet 16 for Georgia Go Hard.
