Providence Day power forward Grant Williams signed a men’s basketball scholarship to play for Tennessee Friday morning in the school’s packed auditorium.
Williams, a 6-foot-7 senior, led the Chargers to the N.C. Independent Schools semifinals last season when he averaged 18 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 2.7 assists.
Williams, who chose the Volunteers over Ivy League schools Princeton and Yale, had more than 30 Division I scholarship offers.
