Keith Williams is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA.  He is a rangy defender that can make numerous plays on the ball, and he has the physical tools to develop into being a solid defender at the NBA level.  On offense, he thrives at scoring in transition, and he can throw down some highlight-reel worthy dunks on the break.  He will need to improve his jump shot and show that he can consistently create his own shot to score the basketball.  Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
