BillyDee Williams to transfer out of West Virginia


Bob Huggins announced late on Monday night that BillyDee Williams will be transferring out of the program.

“BillyDee and I met, and we mutually agreed that he should transfer to another school for his senior season,” says Huggins. “We thank BillyDee for his contributions to Mountaineer basketball, and we wish him success in his future endeavors.”

Williams, a 6-foot-6 forward from Orlando, averaged 1.2 points and 1.5 boards this past season, although he only played limited minutes. Williams averaged 7.3 minutes while playing in just 18 games.

2014-15 was Williams’ first season with the Mountaineers. He transferred into the program from South Plains Community College, where he spent a season after leaving Iowa Western Community College.

Williams will have one season of eligibility remaining.
