Samuell Williamson helped Drive Nation to an 11-5 regular season record and trip to Peach Jam during their inaugural Peach Jam run.
Williamson is one of many division one players on the roster, and we caught up with the combo-guard about his experience playing in the Elite Youth Basketball League.
Question: What’s it like playing with Drive Nation?
Samuell Williamson: We play well together. We’re playing well, we don’t have a single leader, but we all just push each other.
Q: How’s the recruiting process going?
SW: It’s going pretty well, I’m enjoying every moment of it.
Q: What’re you looking for in a school?
SW: Just a great relationship with the coaching staff, a system I can see myself playing in, and a great fan base. Those are some of the main things.
Q: You’ve been putting up some impressive numbers. Do you think that’s due to your aggressiveness? Teammates? Style?
SW: A little bit of everything. They find me, I can be aggressive. We’ve been seeing a lot of 2-3 zone, so I’m just trying to find the gaps and get to my spots.
Q: Who are you looking forward to play in Peach Jam?
SW: Every team. Every team we play, we have to come out strong or you’re going to get beat.
Q: You only have eight players on your team. Is it difficult having such a small rotation?
SW: It’s not very difficult, to be honest. I don’t think we need more than eight or nine guys on a team. We have eight guys that can go, so we can sub in and sub out. We don’t have a weak lineup, every player on our team can go.
Q: Who’s a teammate that you look for to be a leader?
SW: I’d probably say Drew Timme. He’s unselfish. If he’s posting up, and someone is cutting, he’s going to find them.
