Ah, the albatross. Moby Dick. The great white buffalo. The elusive pure shooter. Wake has been searching for one since the departure of Justin Gray, but has as of yet had no success. That might change, however, if the Demon Deacons can land Baltimore, Maryland native Kameron Williams in the class of 2013.
The 6'2 shooting guard from Mt. St. Joseph High School plays AAU ball with Baltimore Elite and has been tearing up the nets at the Nike EYBL.

Via TerpsInsider's Scott Greene:
One of the hottest names coming into the second weekend of Nike's EYBL play was that of Mt. St. Joseph's Kameron Williams.
Coming off of a junior season at Mt. St. Joseph where he earned BCL Player of the Year honors, there has been absolutely no let up in Kam's game thus far this spring. Through the first four games of EYBL play, Williams led the league in points per game (27.3) as well as three pointers made (21).
When listing off his favorites to TerpsInsider, Williams said he had offers from Dayton, VCU, Miami, Virginia Tech, Drexel and Wake Forest. He also mentioned interest from Oklahoma State, Providence, Michigan State, Michigan and Richmond.
The junior is an incredible shooter, but his size and lack of versatility had some teams scared coming into the 2011-12 season. He has since committed to playing both the 1 and the 2 and has worked on driving and ball-handling, which seems to have paid off. He is a consensus three star by the recruiting services, but his stock appears to be rising as the AAU season gets going.
Greene had this to say to Blogger So Dear about Wake's recruitment of Williams:
Wake is definitely near the top of his list right now, and he has a great relationship with Coach Bzdelik. He really wants to play in the ACC.
The Demon Deacons seem to be in good shape with a lot of SGs in the 2013 class and Williams' performance during the summer should be something to keep an eye on.
