18 is the count as this vaunted Class of 2013 continues to churn out the D1 commitments at an alarming rate.
Johnathan Williams III (Southwind) becomes the 18th member of the Class of 2013 to pledge to D1 as the 6'8 wing will venture next door to the newest member of the SEC, the Tigers of Missouri.
Always strong on the Memphis scene, Missouri won 30 games last season and will be primed to be an immediate factor in the SEC race.
The Tigers are coached by Frank Haith.
Williams, who ran this summer, when he was healthy, with the Bluff City Legends, is a wiry wing who can score from inside or on the perimeter. He has ball skills and once his strength catches up with him he could be a big factor on the next level,.
Now J3 can concentrate on helping get Southwind down to Murfreesboro in March.
