LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) -- Evansville transfer DeAndre Williams is heading to Memphis.

His other three finalists were Baylor, Arkansas and Kentucky.

The 6'9'' sophomore appeared in just eighteen games last season due to a back injury, but was able to average 15.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.

"He [Hardaway] did a helluva job on recruiting me, and he just put a lot of effort into recruiting me," Williams told 247Sports. "He told me that he can develop me, and I believe him because he's already played at the next level."

Kentucky was a legitimate option for Williams, but once the Wildcats added Wake Forest transfer Olivier Sarr, minutes became a factor in the decision.
