Jordan Williams Likely To Remain In 2011 NBA Draft, According To Report

More and more, it sounds like Maryland center Jordan Williams is indeed planning on staying in the 2011 NBA Draft. Williams has yet to hire an agent, but several reports point to him likely doing so soon as the Sunday deadline to stay in the draft draws near.

Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun is reporting that Williams has skipped many classes and almost did not attend the team banquet. Barker also spoke to Cliff Tucker, a senior guard on the Maryland basketball team last year that is staying an extra semester to play football, and Tucker said Williams seems ready to leave. ESPN's Chad Ford, meanwhile, is also reporting that Williams is going to stay in the draft.

Williams' departure would be a crushing blow to a Terps team looking to bounce back from not making the postseason in 2010/11. Gary Williams' squad welcomes back a lot of key contributors, but it won't mean as much without their star big man returning to campus.
