BOISE, Idaho - Boise State men's basketball signed Roderick Williams to a National Letter of Intent, head coach Leon Rice announced Monday. Williams is a 6-foot-7, 215-pound combo forward from East Los Angeles College.
"Roderick is a fantastic addition to next year's team," Rice said. "He is a versatile player with great athleticism who will compliment both our returning and incoming players."
The Los Angeles, Calif., native was sensational in his two seasons as a Husky. This past year he led the team in scoring (19.4 ppg) and rebounding (6.6 rpg), propelling ELAC to a 24-6 record and the South Coast Conference (North Division) title.
Williams consistently got to the basket and made a living at the free throw line in 2017-18, shooting 75.9 percent (170-of-224) while averaging eight free throw attempts per game.
In the 2016-17 season he was named the South Coast Conference (North Division) Player of the Year after averaging 18.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, leading ELAC to another conference title with a 23-7 record.
Prior to his time at ELAC, Williams played at Price High School in Los Angeles where he was named the 2015 CIF Los Angeles City Section (Division VI) Wooden Award High School Player of the Year.
He led Price in scoring both his junior and senior seasons. Williams was also ranked a three-star prospect and the 19th-best player in California by ESPN in 2015.
Williams will join Riley Abercrombie, Jaycson Bereal, Pat Dembley, Mikey Frazier and Max Rice in the 2018 incoming class.
