NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State dipped back into the Missouri prep basketball scene to add combo guard Joshua “Greedy” Williams.

Williams spent this past season at We Are United Prep in Nixa, Missouri, making all seven of this season’s signees with ties to Missouri.

New NSU head coach Corey Gipson, a Missouri native who served on Missouri State’s staff for the past seven seasons, said the 6-foot-5 Williams has outstanding skills as a facilitator.

“Greedy played for a winning program under Robert Yanders at We Are United Prep, and you know what you’re getting down to the core when you get one of players,” Gipson said. “He’s a big lead guard with a great understanding for the game, and he has a high basketball IQ.

“He’s a prolific passer and facilitator who can defend multiple positions. His father Brian is one of the all-time great shooters at the University of Alabama, so he’s grown up around basketball and can be an extension of the coaching staff.”
Williams established his basketball foundation in Pinson Valley, Alabama, averaging 15 points and more than four rebounds and four assists per game for Pinson Valley High in 2020-21.

He led the Indians to a 20-5 record and the regional round of the Class 6A playoffs.
