Missouri's Quin Snyder, Arizona's Lute Olson and the Tar Heels' Roy Williams agree with Lindberg. They were among the nation's prominent coaches to visit Bremerton and see Williams, one of the nation's prominent prep players, during recruiting.
"I've had four or five NBA teams come to watch," Lindberg said.

Lodrick and Rodrick Stewart may be contributing significantly as freshmen at the University of Southern California, but Williams is expected to dominate at UNC.
