The Red Raiders have acquired another player, this one a forward by the name of Bryson Williams! Williams transfers to Texas Tech after four seasons at UTEP! Here are just some of the things Williams brings to the table:
Williams is one of the best scoring forwards in the country. He has averaged over 15 points per game in his last two seasons. He uses his athleticism to take larger defenders to the hole and can finish at the rim with ease. He has become a better free-throw shooter in his past two seasons as well, jumping his percentage from 60% his sophomore season to 83% in his last season.
Williams is also a very solid mid-range shooter and can stretch the defense by using his mid-range jumper as a weapon. He can occasionally step out to shoot a three-point shot as well as he shot 28% from behind the arc last season!
Size on Defense
There’s no doubt that Williams will start immediately for this team. At 6’8″, Williams will start alongside Marcus Santos-Silva in the frontcourt. He’s not going to block a ton of shots, but he will use his length to contest shots and get in passing lanes. Paired with Santos-Silva, they could be one of the best frontcourt tandems in the Big 12.
Williams’ size will be relied on with there not being much depth at the power forward/ center spots other than freshman Daniel Batcho. He’s a scoring big that will cause problems on the offense and defensive end for the Red Raiders.
