CJ Williams: 2009 Media Day Interview


WPH: We've been hearing a lot about this new haircut you got. Apparently you drove to Fayetteville to get it done. Is this a new look for you?

CJ: Um, yeah it is. I plan on trying to keep it as long as I can, or as long as my mother will let me.

WPH: What would you call this cut?

CJ: Well, I've heard a lot of different names. I've heard "the mohawk," but probably one thing that I've heard, that kind of stuck with me, is "the FRO-hawk"

WPH: So can you explain why you drove all the way to Fayetteville to get it cut?

CJ: Yeah, my barber, he's good with my hair and he talks to me a lot. His step-son is Tank Tyler, who played football here. He knows a lot about the college ranks.

WPH: Can you talk about the difference from last years team to this years team?

CJ: I think we're going to play with a lot more emotion this year. We have a lot of guys that work hard and want to compete every night.

WPH: This summer you played in the Durham Pro-AM league, put on by Jerry Stackhouse. You played exceptionally well against some pretty stout competition. Do you feel that helped you a lot?

CJ: It definitely gave me a lot of confidence knowing that I can go out and compete against NBA guys, former NBA guys, and guys that never made it, but were good enough to make it.

WPH: Can you talk about what improvements you've seen in your game this off-season?

CJ: I've worked on my ability to get to the basket a lot more. I've worked on being able to set my other teammates up by seeing the entire floor as I'm going to the basket.

WPH: Last year you relied a lot on the jump shot. This year, you're saying we will see a different player?

CJ: Right, yea. I think I am a different player than I was last year. The experience was definitely good for me, and I learned a lot from Courtney Fells. He was like a big brother to me on the team, and he taught me a lot about what I needed to know in ACC basketball.

WPH: We've heard that the strength and conditioning this year has gotten a lot more intense. Your thoughts?

CJ: It is intense. It is very intense. Charles was definitely a good strength and conditioning coach and Wright knows what he's doing, so there is a difference, but you know.

    We are on our way to VA now. Lorenzo and his Hargrave squad will be playing in a huge scrimmage vs. Oak Hill.

    We will be there to take in the game and will be present for Zo's announcement.

    OK, what's the big announcement?

    If you aren't going to give us a hint now then when can we come to the site to get an update?

    Sorry I will miss you. Tried to make it to the game, but couldnt' get away. Still planning on attending the Oak Hill v Flora game to watch Cothron compete. Look forward to the video and your analysis of how everyone looked.

    ..... That is not a mohawk, and most likely not a frohawk.

    Is Zo's announcement before or after the game?

    Ravenous for info here :)

    He's already announced he's coming to State, so I'm really wondering too. Maybe he can enroll in the Spring, but not play. Therefore, he'd still have 4 years of eligibility starting next year.

    Or maybe at halftime.

    God, I feel like a drug addict

    I'm thinking he is just announcing that he will be signing early.

    Although I would love it if he was announcing he was coming early.

    Really like this CJ Williams and the foundation he can help build for this turnaround. He knows basketball very well and he comes across as approaching the game as a chance to learn something new and do it better next time. Wouldn't be a surprise if he is a cap't Jr. and Sr. year.
