After just one season, guard Trayden Williams has decided to transfer from Robert Morris.
The freshman guard from Charlotte, North Carolina has put his name in the NCAA Transfer Portal, according to Verbal Commits. A source close to the program told Pittsburgh Sports Now that the reason for the departure is that Williams simply wants to play closer to home.
Playing time wasn’t an issue as last season, Williams played 23.2 minutes per game and averaged 7.3 points, 1.9 assists, 1.8 rebounds and shot 39% from 3-point range. Williams best game as a Colonial came on February 6 against Youngstown State when he scored 16 points and collected four rebounds and three assists. Three games later against Wright State, the 5-foot-11 guard scored 14 points and three rebounds.
The graduate of North Mecklenburg High School signed with Robert Morris in November of 2019.
Williams is the fifth player from the Robert Morris program to transfer, joining Dante Treacy, Cameron Wilbon, Pat Suemnick and A.J. Bramah.
