COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The University of Maryland says sophomore center Jordan Williams has signed with an agent, a move that ends his eligibility to play at the school.
Williams entered his name in the 2011 NBA draft earlier this year. He could have kept his eligibility had he not signed with an agent and by withdrawing by May 8.
Maryland made the announcement of his signing on Wednesday.
Williams, of Torrington, Conn., averaged 16.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game for the Terrapins this season.
Maryland head coach Gary Williams says he wishes Jordan Williams well.
