MEMPHIS — Penny Hardaway and the Tigers have hit the transfer trifecta.
Talented Evansville forward Deandre Williams joining Ahmad Rand and Landers Nolley in picking the U of M.
It took awhile but Williams making the decision Friday on Instagram, picking the Tigers over Kentucky, Arkansas and Baylor and bringing a versatile 6-9 skill set to the bluff city.
Last season with the Purple Aces, Williams led the team in scoring and rebounding, averaging 15 points and 7 boards a game, helping Evansville to an upset of then number-one Kentucky, at Rupp, back in mid November.
Williams has two years of eligibility remaining.
