Report: Tigers Elliot Williams to Go Pro

You could call it a decision made by necessity..

Not because he really needs the money...but, this may be the best time to get it.

Multiple National Media Outlets are reporting Memphis Tigers Guard Elliot Williams is entering the NBA Draft.

The 6'5" Sophomore from St. George's High School is said to be foregoing his final 2-years of eligibility by signing with an Agent.

A formal announcement is expected Tuesday.

The 6'5" Guard, a former McDonald's All American, originally signed with Duke and played his Freshman season with the Blue Devils earning a starting job near the end of the season.

He transferred to Memphis last summer to be close to his ill mother.

Williams led the Tigers in scoring and earned First Team All Conference USA Honors.

Williams is projected as a First Round Pick...and with the uncertainty of the NBA's Salary structure after next season, this may be the last big payday for Rookies entering the League.
