A young Marvin Williams once had the opportunity to jump straight from high school to the NBA. Although, he turned down entering the draft and now had a decision to make about college.

When his recruitment process started many college coaches all said the same thing to him, except for one coach in North Carolina.

Marvin says when Coach Roy Williams came to his hometown of Bremerton, Washington he quickly separated himself from the rest.

(Via The Opinionated 7-Footers):

“He was the only coach that recruited me that never promised me anything and that is what I appreciated. I felt like I wanted to earn anything that I got.”
