Norfolk State lands LC Bird (VA) big duo in 6’8 Tyrek Williams and 6’7 Chris Ford. Both Williams and Ford starred for River City Reign on the BIG SHOTS Circuit and form one of VA’s top interior duos at LC Bird.
Tyrek Williams is a BIG SHOTS All American that has consistently put up big numbers in BIG SHOTS over the last two years. The 6’8 productive big has an efficient game inside using footwork and post moves with the ability to stretch out to 15′ and more. He creates a mismatch off the bounce from a high post drive and with his length gets it done at both ends of the floor on the glass. Norfolk State landed one of the top bigs in VA’s 2018 class. He played July with Team Loaded VA as he considered reclassifying but chose to stay in the 2018 class committing to Norfolk State.
Chris Ford, also a BIG SHOTS All American, was a breakout performer in July in BIG SHOTS. At 6’7, strong frame and a high motor Ford immediately has the presence that would get college coaches attention. After putting up huge double-double numbers in the All American Camp and continued dominant play in Myrtle Beach Live his recruitment took off. It was at BIG SHOTS MYRTLE BEACH Live where Chris picked up his first Division 1 offer that being from Norfolk State. Ford is a player that that took advantage of the opportunity when given and made the most of it. We’re fortunate to have players every year that come in with limited recruiting that blow up and Chris Ford joins the list. Norfolk State lands a hungry, hybrid big that is only getting better and better by the day.
