Texas Prep Hoops Coaches Honor Two TCU Signees

USA TODAY Sports

Williams, Parrish will join four-star center Shepherd at TCU in 2013.

The Texas Association of Basketball Coaches has honored 2013 TCU men's basketball early signees Michael Williams and Brandon Parrish with all-state and all-region honors following outstanding prep seasons.

Williams and Parrish joined touted center prospect Karviar Shepherd in signing with TCU last fall to form the school's top recruiting class in recent memory. The group was recently rated among the nation's top-40 classes by ESPN (No. 36) entering the start of next week's late signing period.

Williams, a 6-2 guard who plays for San Antonio's Regan High School, was a TABC all-state selection and one of only 20 student-athletes listed on the Class 5A team. He added All-Region IV honors and was one of 24 players selected to compete in the 2013 TABC 4A-5A All-Star Game May 17 in San Antonio. Williams was rated a three-star recruit prior to the start of the season according to both Rivals.com and Scout.com.

Williams recently concluded an outstanding senior season by helping lead Reagan to the 4-5A district tile with a 25-6 overall record. The Rattlers reached the area round of the 5A state playoffs. Individually, Williams had solid a season, leading the team in scoring at 17.1 points per game while adding averages of 4.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals. He scored in double figures in 27 of 31 contests with nine 20-point efforts.

Parrish, an Arlington native who plays for local power Seguin High School, also received all-region notice this season from the TABC for district 2-4A. The 6-5 wing starred for a Cougars squad that flirted with the national top-25 rankings before reaching the 2-4A regional final of the state playoffs. He was rated the nation's No. 143 overall player for the Class of 2013 prior to the start of the season by Rivals.com.

Parrish served as Seguin's leading scorer in his senior season, averaging 14.7 points per game. Among his highlights was a nationally televised 24-point performance that helped lead the Cougars to a 71-63 win over eventual 4A state runner-up Dallas Kimball in early December on ESPNU.

TCU looks to add to its incoming class later this month with the start of the late signing period. The month-long period begins April 17 and stretches through May 15. The Frogs' recruiting efforts will be the main focus of the final Trent Johnson Radio Show, which will air live next Wednesday, April 17, at 6 p.m. from Buffalo Bros. restaurant near the TCU campus. Fans are encouraged to attend for the chance to meet Coach Johnson and his staff and to learn more about the Frogs' recruiting efforts. A special private event for TCU Fast Break Club members only will lead off the evening at 5:30 p.m.
