Williams chooses New Mexico over Iowa
The Iowa men’s basketball team has lost out on yet another possible recruit.
Former Samford University forward Tim Williams will play at New Mexico for the rest of his college career, he announced on Sunday.
The 6-8 forward also considered Iowa and Nevada but ultimately chose to play for former Hawkeye assistant coach Craig Neal.
Williams averaged 17.6 points on 60 percent shooting last season as a sophomore. He also contributed 7.3 rebounds per game and was named first-team all Southern Conference by the coaches.
His choice to go to New Mexico is the most recent setback for Hawkeye coach Fran McCaffrey.
Nevada transfer Cole Huff and junior-college transfer Willie Atwood also have also picked against the Hawkeyes in recent months.
