BREAKING: DeAndre Williams Committed to the University of Memphis and Penny Hardaway.
The 6-foot-9 Houston native averaged a team-best 15.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists while shooting 64.8 percent from the field at Evansville this past season.
Williams also declared for the NBA draft without hiring an agent. Williams has not yet withdrawn his name from the draft. The NCAA is considering an adjustment that would allow first-time transfers in men’s basketballto be eligible without sitting out for a season at their new school. However, the NCAA’s Board of Directors recommended against the immediate implementation of that rule change last month.
Williams is scheduled to join the Jason & John Show Monday (5/18) at 11:25 a.m. on 92.9 FM ESPN.
