COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Jordan Williams has signed with an agent, ending his eligibility to play at the University of Maryland, it was announced Wednesday.
Williams, a 6-foot-10 sophomore center from Torrington, Conn., had earlier entered his name for the 2011 NBA Draft. He could have retained his eligibility by not signing with an agent and withdrawing by May 8.
"We wish Jordan well as he pursues his dream of playing in the NBA," said head coach Gary Williams.
Jordan Williams led the Terrapins in scoring (16.9 points per game) and rebounding (11.8 per game) this season and led the Atlantic Coast Conference on the boards. A third team All-America selection, Williams also was an All-ACC first-team pick.
Williams set a school record last season with 13 consecutive double-doubles, finishing the season with 25.
