Former Nevada Wolfpack freshman forward Darrion Williams has announced that he has transferred to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The 2022-23 Mountain West Freshman of the Year is now headed to play basketball in the Big 12 next season. After a great start to his career with Nevada, he announced his intention to enter the transfer portal. Despite the great season, Nevada has lost some talent this offseason to the transfer portal. Williams was going to be projected as a top Mountain West player next season, but will now be attempting to make his impact in the talented Big 12.

Darrion Williams was fantastic for the Nevada Wolf Pack in his first year with the program. He won the Mountain West Freshman of the Year award while averaging 7.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.4 steals per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 41.4 percent and a three-point percentage of 35.7 percent. The decision to move to the Big 12 should be a good one for both his progression and his NIL offers. While the adjustment could be a big one, Williams will prepare himself for that move. Texas Tech is looking for a better season next year and this addition could help them achieve that.
