Kam Williams is giving Ohio State one more year.
The senior forward announced on Wednesday that he will remove his name from the NBA draft. He entered without an agent last month and was not invited to the NBA combine.
Williams averaged 10.3 points per game last season for the Buckeyes. He scored 8.3 the season prior and is a 39-percent 3-point shooter in his career.
Ohio State lost Trevor Thompson, who signed with an agent, to the NBA after he took a big step forward last season. The Buckeyes also lost 4-star commit Darius Bazley, who said “they didn’t even make the NIT.” Point guard JaQuan Lyle allegedly punched a police car and quit the team.
The Buckeyes also missed out on Howard grad transfer James Daniels, who led the nation in scoring in 2015-16. He chose Tennessee.
So yes, Williams coming back is big. Ohio State can use all the help it can get.
Williams was the No. 71 player in the Class of 2013 out of Mt. Saint Joseph in Baltimore.
