McKayla Williams’ Education and Career
McKayla Williams was acing basketball, volleyball, and track at Windward School. She led her school basketball team to state championships and was part of the Los Angeles Times All-Star Girls Basketball Team. She also won a Junior Olympics gold medal in track and was an all-league volleyball player in high school.
Before graduating high school in 2020, Williams announced she had committed to play basketball at Gonzaga University. She was hoping to wear the #21 jersey as it’s the number Reshanda Gray wore at Berkeley.
Moreover, it’s the same number of former Gonzaga basketballer-turned-WNBA star Courtney Vandersloot. However, the number was unofficially retired in honor of Vandersloot, so Williams wears #24 instead.
Williams played in the 2020–21 and 2021–22 seasons. She’s majoring in pre-law and recently made the Dean’s List.

In college, Harris had been dating fellow basketball player McKayla Williams. And, of course, they watch each other’s games and give tips to improve. Harris is also his girlfriend’s biggest fan.
“She’s doing amazing, her defense stands out and speaks for itself,” Harris told the The Spokesman-Review. “I feel like she should have won defensive player of the year in the conference, but she’s playing great. It’s a big step for her this year and the team’s playing great this year as well.”
