Ohio State's Kam Williams Refutes NBA Draft Report

The Buckeyes' standout is refuting a report that says he's returning to school.

Ohio State junior guard Kam Williams is refuting a report that says he's decided to return to school.

Williams had previously declared for the NBA Draft without hiring an agent, making it possible for him to return for his senior season if he wants to.

Earlier today, Jon Rothstein of Fan Rag Sports reported that Williams has decided to return to school, saying Thad Matta told him.

Ohio State Buckeyes talent Kam Williams will return for his senior season, Thad Matta told FanRag Sports on Monday morning. He had originally entered his name in the 2017 NBA Draft, but did so without hiring an agent. By not signing with professional representation, he remained eligible to return to school.

Williams, though, is refuting that on Twitter.

Williams, a four-star recruit coming out of high school, averaged 9.4 points and 2.1 assists per game for the Buckeyes during the 2016-17 season.

The 6-foot-2 guard isn't projected to get selected if he stays in the NBA Draft.
