Williams to Oregon State, Not Long Beach State
According to Andy Katz of ESPN.com, former Providence sophomore Dwain Williams is transferring to Oregon State, not Long Beach State as was previously reported. "It was a miscommunication," Williams' former AAU coach, J.J. Santa Cruz, said. "He wants to go to Oregon State to help them turn it around." Last month, LBSU issued a news release stating that Williams had signed a letter of intent to play for the 49ers, but head coach Dan Monson said he would allow Williams out of his commitment so he could go to Oregon State. The 6-0 guard from San Diego averaged 11.0 points and 2.2 assists per game for the Friars last season despite missing 10 games.
