“Words can’t describe how blessed I am to be in this position,” Williams wrote as part of his post. “To my teammates, thank you for being more than just teammates. The love, support, and authenticity we show one another has honestly made this season a dream come true. The entire year has been filled with moments I will truly never forget.”
The 6-foot-8, 225-pound Williams averaged 9.2 points and 4.0 rebounds in his freshman season. The forward is the 20th-ranked prospect in ESPN’s draft prospect rankings.
Williams isn’t the only Seminole to declare for the 2020 NBA draft. Williams the second FSU player to declare his eligibility for the draft. Sophomore guard Devin Vassell, who led the Seminoles with 12.7 points per game this season, also has said he’d enter the draft.
