Earlier this afternoon, head coach Andy Toole and his staff added another piece to their team’s puzzle as they landed the commitment of former Tennessee Martin forward Jaron Williams.

Before his time with UTM, Williams spent his first two seasons of his collegiate career at the College of Central Florida. He was ranked the 55th best junior college prospect in the nation by JUCORecuriting.com. Williams lived up to the ranking as he helped the Patriots hold a share of the regular-season championship in his sophomore campaign. That season, he averaged 11 points and three rebounds all while shooting the ball at a 43-percent clip from the field.

In his lone season with the Skyhawks, Martin started in 22 out of the 24 games logging just around 10 points and three rebounds. Williams shot the ball at a 49-percent rate from the field and 36-percent from beyond the arc. He scored a career-high 21 points against Jacksonville State on February 4.

Williams joins an already loaded frontcourt which includes Kahliel Spear, Matt Mayers, Mattia Acunzo, Brandon Stone, Tristian Jeffries, and Justin Winston.
