Nevada Basketball Adds Another Transfer

Posted: Updated:

Head Nevada men’s basketball coach Eric Musselman has added center/forward Darien Williams, a big-man who will be immediately eligible to play, to the Wolf Pack squad.

Williams, a graduate transfer from St. John’s, comes in at 6-8 and 235 pounds, proving to be a menace down low for opposing teams. He will be a senior who is eligible to play in the 2017-18 season. With the Red Storm, Williams averaged three points and three rebounds in 16.3 minutes per game. Williams also played at Iowa Western Community College during the 2013-14 season and was on the team at the City College of San Francisco, although he sat out with an injury.

"We are so excited about Darien joining our program,” Musselman said. “As soon as we started recruiting him, it seemed like all of the boxes were checked. He is what we like to call an O-K-G, ‘Our Kinda Guy.’ He is a high character young man with a great personality."

At Iowa Western, Williams netted a team-high 16.1 points and hauled in 6.7 rebounds per game. The numbers earned him All-Region honors, helping lead the team to a 23-8 record and a No. 3 national ranking.

Born in San Francisco, Williams played his high school ball at St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif. He helped lead his team to the 2013 California Southern Section Championship as a senior and earned All-Area honors.

Williams joins four other transfers as new members of the Pack this season.
