ESPN Player Evaluations

Summer 08: Six-foot-three Destiny Williams, a forward from Benton Harbor, Mich., has the ability to be effective both in the post and on the wing. She has the size and athleticism that can create shots in the paint, but also the ability to put it on the floor and slash into the middle on the drive. The Michigan Crossover standout knows her role and looks for her opportunities on every possession and that's a big headache for opponents. She also has the touch and stroke to knock down the 15-footer from the wing or step out on the baseline for the short jumper. Williams also gets on the offensive boards and puts up quite a few second chance points.

Nike Skills May 08: Williams looked like one of the best players in the gym at times and then blended into the fray at other times at the Nike Regional Skills Academy-Indy. She was one of the few post players who initiated contact with regularity. With her ability to put the ball on the floor she is a legitimate high post and low post threat at 6-3. Consistency and the will to dominate inferior competition is what she needs to prove. Does she want to be great? She has the body to be a successful player in college. Her quickness is a step above the rest of her post competition as those fast twitch muscles can really get her to spots on the court that a lot of posts and even some wings can't.
