It appears Williamson was on a beach in South Carolina and was casually tossing the pill around. He cocked back and launched the ball down the sand with ease.
If basketball doesn’t work out for the 6-foot-7, 284-pound forward, there clearly is an option in football for him.
Eric Mateos, a former LSU Tigers assistant football coach, told ESPN in November he could see Williamson play tight end if he felt like trading into the basketball shoes for some cleats. The coach said he once offered Williamson a scholarship to play tight end.
“I thought, hell, why not, he's probably the best damn tight end to ever live,” Mateos said.
For now, Williamson is projected to go at least in the top three when the NBA draft comes around next month.
