Texas A&M lands commitment from Mountain West Freshman of the Year
Buzz Williams reached into the Mountain West to pick up the latest addition to the Texas A&M program.
Marcus Williams, who was the Mountain West Freshman of the Year last season at Wyoming after he averaged 14.8 points and 4.3 assists per game, announced his commitment to the Aggies. This is the latest in a flurry of transfers the Aggies have picked up in recent days. JUCO transfer Aaron Johnson-Cash announced his commitment to the Aggies on Friday, and the Aggies also added Arkansas transfer Ethan Henderson a week ago.
Williams, who hails from Dickinson, Texas, finished eighth among Division I freshmen in scoring with a team-high 14.8 points per game and also finished second on the team in assists.
Williams is exactly what the Aggies needed as he brings an experienced option who played a part in 36 percent of Wyoming’s baskets last season and he scored in double figures in 21 of Wyoming’s 25 games overall, per GigEm247. He also scored over 20 points on five occasions.
These transfers are hoping to turn around a program that struggled in the 2020-21 season. The Aggies went 8-10 overall, and won just a pair of conference games. It was the worst basketball season from the Aggies since going 0-16 in the 2003-04 season.
