A new impact mid-major transfer emerged on the market on Monday as The Recruit Scoop‘s Alex Kline reported that Samford sophomore forward Tim Williams has asked for a release from the program.
The 6-foot-8 Williams was the SoCon Freshman of the Year in 2012-13 and in his sophomore year this past season averaged 17.6 points and 7.3 rebounds on 60 percent shooting from the field. A native of the Chicago suburbs, Williams also averaged 1.4 blocks per game and was 75 percent from the free-throw line.
Williams has been a highly productive player in two seasons for the Bulldogs but he was recruited by former Samford assistant coach Yasir Rosemond, who left for Georgia earlier this spring.
The forward has two years of eligibility remaining and could be a hot commodity because of his efficiency shooting the ball while remaining productive in other areas of the game.
