DECATUR-- Just two days after leading the St. Teresa boys basketball team to their best finish in school history, Christian Williams has verbally committed to the University of Iowa.
Williams told PrephoopsIllinois.com that he informed Iowa Head Coach Fran McCaffery of his decision last night during a conversation on the phone. McCaffery was in Peoria Saturday to watch Williams play in the 2-A State Championship.
Williams becomes the fifth member of Iowa's 2015 recruiting class. He's the 2nd senior athlete from Macon County to commit to Iowa, joining Maroa-Forsyth football standout Jack Hockaday.
