Tyrone Williams, a guard for the Oregon men’s basketball team, will be entering the transfer portal. This news comes from a reliable source close to the situation.
Williams’ playing time with the Ducks was limited this past season. He only appeared in one out of 11 games from January 14th to March 2nd, but he did see more action towards the end of the season. He played in five of their final seven games, including all three NIT games.
Despite his limited playing time during most of the season, Williams made an impact when he did take to the court. In fact, he had some impressive performances during his final few games with Oregon.
During their first-round NIT win against UC Irvine, Williams scored a season-high 12 points and also grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds. These stats showed that Williams has great potential as a player and could make valuable contributions on another team.
At this point it is unclear where Williams will transfer to or what his plans are for next season, but it is certain that several teams will be interested in acquiring him due to his skills on and off-court.
Williams’ departure marks yet another change for an Oregon team that has seen significant roster turnover since last year's NCAA tournament run. The Ducks will now have big shoes to fill as they begin preparations for next season without one of their key players.
