Mikey Williams Bio
Mikey Williams’ birth name is Michel George Williams, born on 26th June 2004 to father Mahlon Williams and mother, Charisse Williams.
Mikey is the firstborn in a family of three children.
He has a sister, 14-year-old Skye, and a younger brother, 13-year-old Marvin. He lives with his family in San Diego.
He is an American citizen of African-American descent, born in San Diego, California.
Mikey has roots firmly planted in sports as both his parents were active athletes in their hay days. His father, Mahlon, was a basketball player too, having played for Sweetwater High School as an ALL-CIF-SDS selection. His mother, Charisse, played softball for Kearny High School and Hampton University.
Mikey’s father is a basketball coach and his trainer at home. The father started coaching him at a young age. The two would play outside in the court at their apartment complex when Mikey was barely ten years old.
A Star Is Born
At only 17 years old, Mikey has achieved many milestones in his love for Basketball, and he is headed for the NBA.
In Middle School, while at San Ysidro High School, Mikey worked as a ball boy for the school head coach, Terry Tucker, who fondly remembers the boy as a Gym rat. Mikey got his first official game dunk at 12 in 6th Grade while playing for San Diego Sharks. Between the 6th and 8th Grades, he was also an asset player for the Travelling Malcolm Thomas All-stars.
By the 8th Grade, Mikey’s dedication to the game started paying off when he topped the 2023 Prospect List of the Naismith National Youth All-American Report. This is no mean feat as the list is a prestigious achievement as it indicates athletes are likely to go pro and join the NBA. He is currently considered a 5-star recruit in the 2023 Class by 247 Sport, ESPN and Rivals, all star-making sporting outfits.
Around the time of topping the 2023 Prospect List, he was playing for North Coast Blue Chips, in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), alongside LeBron Raymore James Junior, LeBron James’ son. This helped increase his popularity and rise to fame.
During his Freshman year at San Ysidro High School, Mikey Williams played as the point guard. He scored 41 points and four assists in a 98-46 win over El Cajon Valley High School. He also made 50 points in his next game and 77 points over Kearny High School.
His win for San Ysidro against Kearny was a career highlight for Mikey because, at that game, he scored nine three-pointers, which was a record-breaker in the CIF San Diego section (CID-SDS) single-game ‘Scoring-Record’. Tyronne Shelly had previously held this record since 2005!
Mikey’s other high school career highlight is his 2020,35-points score against Rancho High School. Although San Ysidro lost the game to Rancho, Mikey’s score was still an achievement, considering Rancho is ranked one of the best high school teams in the country and had the number one player in the country-Evan Mobley.
As of 2021, Mikey transferred to Lake Norman Christian School in Huntersville, North Carolina, for his Sophomore season. Lake Norman welcomed the move as they knew that Mikey could put them on the map with the big leagues. Smart move, Norman!
In addition to being considered a 5-star recruit by ESPN,247-Sport and Rivals, Mikey has received numerous offers from the NCAA Division 1 Programs, including Arizona and Arizona State Division.
He caught the attention of the HBCU Fraternity in June 2020 after sharing a post on social media, where he expressed a desire to play at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. He has since received overwhelming offers from several HBCUs.
Mikey’s Love Life
Mikey identified as a straight male and was in a relationship with fellow Basketball player Serenity Johnson before they broke up. We are not told why the two broke up, and we respect their privacy on the matter.
He says he is currently single, but rumour has it he is dating a Deja Kelly, a 5-star prospect attending Duncansville High School. Mikey is often spotted on Dija’s photos on Instagram, leaving cute comments. Otherwise, Mikey is a regular teenager, probably up to some mischief. Maybe we ask his parents? Hold that thought;
Mikey Williams Net Worth
As of 2021, the star was worth an estimated $5 Million. He acquired most of this fortune from his football career before he suffered an injury and swapped Football for Basketball. With his growing notoriety on the Basketball courts, he will be worth much more in just a few years as he currently has very good career prospects. He is also a very dedicated and passionate player.
He is also an avid shoe collector, buying and reselling statement designer pieces. We love that side-hustle vibe, go Mikey!
