Guard Rashad Williams, who has averaged 13.6 points over three seasons for Cleveland State and Oakland, announced he will transfer to St. Louis University for the 2021-22 season.

The 6-foot-2 native of Detroit has been a high-volume 3-point shooter, has 1,009 career points and has scored as many as 37 points in a game. He led the country in 3-pointers attempted last season while playing for the Horizon League team.

Williams averaged 13.6 points for Oakland after averaging 19.5 the previous year. He began his college career with one season at Cleveland State, where he averaged 10.8 points.

Williams has topped 30 points four times in his career. He had 37 as a sophomore againast Detroit and scored 36 this season against Michigan State. He made 10 3-pointers and scored 34 points in December against Oklahoma State.

His announcement came one day after Demarius Jacobs said he would be leaving SLU after three seasons.

SLU has three remaining scholarships to use if Jordan Goodwin and Hasahn French do not return as they have indicated. By returning for the extra year offered by the NCAA, Javonte Perkins will not count against the maximum of 13 scholarships.

If all other players remain, Williams would give the Billikens three significant 3-point threats with Perkins and Gibson Jimerson.

However, Williams will likely have to be a little more restrained after attempting 10 3s per game as a junior.
