Williams was born on October 17th 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina to parents Robert and Chrystal Williams. Growing up in a large family of 9 children made it difficult for him to stand out among his siblings. However, by the time he reached high school he had developed into a promising basketball prospect and led West Charlotte High School to their first state title since 1993. After graduating from high school in 2015 with honors, Williams committed to play collegiate basketball at Texas A&M University over offers from Florida State and Kansas among others.

His collegial nickname “Timelord” has stuck around within organization thanks mainly due to his ability either sneak away from defenders or instinctively know when double team is coming leading him often times finish shots otherwise thought impossible .

Going forward critics will watch closely if Robert can take another step forward proving himself even more reliable player rotation next couple years especially given depth issues surrounding big man spots within roster already making strides towards becoming reliable contributor consistently each night still youth side remains main concern moving forward however through hard work determination potential certainly exists heading into future years potentially turning himself into full time starter depending how situation works out come down road .
