Kamari Williams announced on Twitter today that he was entering the transfer portal by retweeting this tweet by VerbalCommits:
Boston College F Kamari Williams (SO) has entered the transfer portal. https://t.co/4dXK2qNb6c— Verbal Commits (@VerbalCommits) April 1, 2021
Williams is a 6’7” sophomore forward for Boston College Men’s Basketball that saw a bit over 12 minutes per game this past season, scoring 2.6 points per game, shooting just .350 from the field, and pulling down only 1.2 rebounds per game. Those numbers were roughly the same, though slightly improved, from his freshman year at BC. Entering the transfer portal does not necessarily mean a player will be leaving their school, but so far both Wynston Tabbs and Jay Heath have decided to move elsewhere, and CJ Felder is getting some serious interest from Florida, among other schools.
While his starting teammates may be in somewhat high demand at other programs, it’s unclear what Williams is expecting to get out of transferring from BC. He put up very little production for the amount of minutes he was getting in Chestnut Hill, and his playing time would almost certainly go down if he went to another P6 or comparable program. BC is in a perfect position to utilize his talents, as the Eagles have a very thin roster in desperate need of experienced players, something that Williams has to offer in his Junior year. Maybe Coach Grant told him he wouldn’t start next year, maybe he just needs a change in scenery after this past abysmal season, or maybe he’s just testing the waters to see what kind of interest he gets from other schools. Whatever it is, we’ll be sure to let you know when we hear from Williams on his plans for the next school year.
