Nigel Williams-Goss Won't Go to the Draft

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Nigel Williams-Goss will be around for at least one more year after he decided to stick around rather than declare for the upcoming NBA draft.

April 15th is more than just Tax Day. It's also the final day that underclassmen have to withdraw their name for consideration. According to Comcast Sports Network, Nigel WIlliams-Goss withdrew his name from consideration earlier today.

Williams-Goss had received positive feedback from the league, and in a phone call with CSNNW.com, he stated that "the information I got back was positive and informative, which made my decision even tougher. But ultimately my family and me felt like forgoing that path for now, and returning to school, was best for my career in this moment in time."

Williams-Goss had been contemplating entering the NBA draft for weeks and he has called this decision one of the most difficult decisions he has made.

Call this one good news for the UW hoops team, as if Mr. Williams-Goss had indeed declared early, they would have lost out on 13.4 points, 4.4 assists, and 4.4 rebounds every game, and that assuming his production stays the same minus CJ Wilcox, Perris Blackwell, and Desmond Simmons.Nigel Williams-Goss will be around for at least one more year after he decided to stick around rather than declare for the upcoming NBA draft.
