The number one eight grader in the country Mikey Williams will be packing his bags soon, to move to North Carolina sources tell Basketball Society. It has been reported when the point guard came to Charlotte last weekend for All Star weekend for a training session, that he purchased a North Carolina Identification card.
Overtime dropped a dope billboard during Charlotte All Star Weekend, that featured ten of the most prominent upcoming high school players that included Williams.

I’m not sure Overtime knew that Williams might one day travel down I-77 in Charlotte daily and view that billboard. It’s not a secret that the San Diego native loves Duke University and that could be part of the reason for his family’s move to NC. Boogie Ellis, who also is from San Diego, became the second five star in the 2019 class to commit recently to the Blue Devils. Ellis is somebody Williams is very fond of and a big brother in his life.
If Williams moves to North Carolina will he leave the NYBL circuit for the EYBL circuit and play for Team United or CP3? Those are two teams with arguably top 3 backcourts in the nation. Both teams would love to add Williams, but he will have to wait and also get used to playing against another level of competition first and foremost. Some might wonder why Williams would leave the NYBL circuit for the EYBL circuit. Let’s just say that there is a reason a select amount of teams are sponsored by Nike and why a lot of teams are fighting on the NYBL circuit to progress to the EYBL circuit.
Stay locked in to Basketball Society for any updates on this interesting development!
