Memphis sophomore guard Elliot Williams will enter the NBA Draft, a source close to the program confirmed Monday to CBSSports.com.

An official announcement is expected later this week.

Williams averaged 17.9 points and 3.8 assists per game this season, his first for the Tigers after transferring from Duke. He's expected to remain in the draft and sign with an agent. Williams is projected by most as a late first-round pick.

I think it's a poor decision for him to leave early. While he was Memphis' best player, he's just not ready to go to the NBA. Another year of college under his belt could have knocked him up in the rankings and possibly made him a top 15 pick.

Oh well most speculated this would happen.  He definately could use another year but we're loaded next year.  He'll probably make some good money in Europe.  Good luck to him. 

I do.

very good athlete but still pretty raw as a basketball player. He could use another year in school.

It's a sad, sad day in basketball when a guard without a reliable jumper and with an even worse handle is a projected late first-rounder. I like him as a basketball player but he needs at least one more year to improve on EVERY aspect of his game. There are way better guards who have fared worse in the League. With that said, good luck to him.
