Williams will seek transfer

Earlier this year, UK coach Billy Gillispie said freshman big man Morakinyo Williams likely would be transferring to another school. Now it seems apparant that Williams is on his way out.

Sources tell 27 SportsFirst that Williams has said goodbye to teammates. The news could become official on Saturday, when Gillispie will conduct a morning news conference at Memorial Coliseum.

If Williams has been granted his release, he would be free to speak with other schools about the possiblity of transferring.

Williams played in five games with the Wildcats, scoring four points and grabbing five rebounds.
