Erik Williams goes from Big East to Southland

Posted by Jeff Borzello

The transfer train continues to roll on Wednesday night.

A source has informed CBSSports.com former Marquette transfer Erik Williams has decided to play at Sam Houston State.

Williams, a 6-foot-7 forward, played in 24 games last season for the Golden Eagles, averaging 2.2 points and 1.6 rebounds. In the four games he played double-figure minutes, Williams averaged 8.3 points and 5.5 rebounds.

He was a top-100 player coming out of Cypress Springs High School (Tex.) when he chose Marquette over Alabama, Baylor, Texas A&M and others. His combination of length and athleticism should be a huge attribute in the Southland Conference.
