Nigel Williams-Goss has decided to transfer from the Washington Huskies, making him the top available transfer in college basketball. Williams-Goss was the leading scorer for the Huskies last season by averaging 15.6 PPG, 5.9 APG and 4.7 RPG. He showed some great signs all season long of why he is a top-tier point guard, and now many teams around the country are going to try and convince him to come to their school.
Williams-Goss will most likely end up on a major team from a major conference, and do not be surprised if a team like the Iowa State Cyclones ends up recruiting him to come to their school. Coach Fred Hoiberg is a master at recruiting transfers. Last season he had Jameel McKay and Bryce Dejean-Jones play for his squad, and both of those players are transfers who made a huge difference on their team.
Yes, Williams-Goss and Monte Morris are both point guards, but Hoiberg could find a way to use both players at the same time along with Georges Niang and many other talented guys on the Cyclones’ roster. There are many teams that Williams-Goss could fit on, but the Cyclones have experience with turning big-time recruits into great players. This might attract him to Iowa State.
Regardless, wherever Williams-Goss ends up, he will make his team very happy. He is a dynamic guard who can do just about everything on both ends of the floor. He had the opportunity to leave for the NBA draft, but instead he thought he would give college another chance. Whichever team lands him will be getting one heck of a player.
