Daivien Williamson, a transfer guard from ETSU, has committed to Wake Forest and his former coach, Steve Forbes. The Winston-Salem native has 2 years of eligibility remaining but will have to sit out the 2020-21 season, barring a waiver from the NCAA.
Williamson played in all 34 games last season for the Bucs, averaging 10.4 points and 2.6 assists per game. For his ETSU career, Williamson shot 50% from the floor and 38% from beyond the 3-point line. He chose Wake Forest over San Diego State, Georgetown, BYU, and Tulsa. Obviously, his previous relationship with new Head Coach Steve Forbes had a large impact on his decision.
With the transfer, the Deacs now have 5 returning scholarship players, 2 graduate transfers (Dubose, Antonio), 2 transfers who will likely have to sit for a year (Wilkins, Williamson), and 1 incoming freshman (Adams). That leaves Wake with 10 of their allotted 13 scholarships filled for the 2020-21 season.
With 3 open spots left, we will have to wait and see if Williamson is the last player added this offseason.
