Q&A With 2015 UTEP Basketball Recruit CJ Williamson

Last month news broke of UTEP's offer to 2015 guard from Orlando, Florida Courtney (CJ) Williamson. I was recently able to catch up with CJ for a quick Q&A. Thanks to CJ (@CJWill11)!

Q: Being in the class of 2015 and still have a long way of recruiting ahead of you, what schools have offered and showed interest in you?

A: Teams showing interest in me are Boston U, Miami, Murray St., USF, Richmond, Army, UCF, Western Carolina, FIU, Memphis, Morehead, Jacksonville U, and UTEP. I have offers from UTEP, Murray St., Boston U, FIU, UCF, and Georgia Southern.

Q: Thats some good stuff there, CJ! Obviously you must have some game to have that much interest as a sophomore. Talking about your game, to someone who has not seen you play, how would you describe it?

A: My Strengths are getting to the basket with ease! I am a 6'5" Point Guard. My weakness is that I have to improve my mid range pull up.

Q: Which player would you compare your game to?

A: Everyone always calls me "little reke". Short for Tyreke Evans because we play just alike.

Q: Thats a great player to be compared to. Any schools you have visited so far and thoughts on them?

A: Yes! I have unofficially visited Murray St., UCF, USF and Miami. They are all good school but out of those I liked USF the most.

Q: Thoughts on all the love you are getting from UTEP fans on the Twitter world?

A: Man, I love it! I love the UTEP family now! I love it!

Q: Which weekend are you visiting UTEP?

A: I am officially visiting the weekend of November 28th, y'alls rivalry game vs NMSU. I mean OUR rivalry game.

Again thanks to CJ for taking the time to do the Q&A. Planning to do more like these with UTEP recruits, make sure to keep following MinerRush.
