Scout.com’s Evan Daniels is reporting that Gordon College sophomore Jarvis Williams has committed to play at Murray State starting in the 2013-14 season.

Williams, a 6’8″ power forward who committed to UAB over the summer, reopened his recruitment as more colleges began showing interest.

Williams’ coach talked to Bleacher Report about why he chose Murray.

“Coach Matt McMahon and Coach Steve Prohm did a great job recruiting him. They showed how important family is and that they would really take care of him. His dad went with him on the visit and they were both very impressed with the support the community has for the men’s basketball program.”

As a freshman, Williams was named a Junior College All-American, averaging 17.7 points and 10.3 rebounds a game.

Williams is the second commitment for the Racers, joining 3-star point guard Cameron Payne in the Racers’ 2013 class. Payne is considered the 41st-best point guard in the 2013 class by ESPN.com.

Williams will likely start immediately in Murray in the 2013 season, taking the spot left by Ed Daniel‘s graduation this spring.
