The sophomore tweeted on Wednesday to confirm the news that he's entered the transfer portal after VerbalCommits.com and GoPowercat.com reported it.

"My recruitment is 100% back open," Williams tweeted.

K-State responded to a request for comment from 13 News by saying head coach Bruce Weber will address this news after KSU's home game against Alabama State tonight at 7 p.m.

Williams played 46 minutes in five games this season, averaging 3.6 points per game while adding six assists. The guard didn't make his debut this year until the fourth game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. He served a suspension due to reasons K-State has not disclosed.

Last season, he averaged 7.1 minutes over 30 games of action. Williams scored 1.4 points per game and racked up 19 assists.

The St. Louis native played high school basketball with fellow Wildcat Xavier Sneed at Hazelwood Central High School.
