Multi-skilled guard O’Showen Williams will transfer to Appalachian State from South Georgia State College and be immediately eligible for the Mountaineers’ 2017-18 season.

He will sign with App State on April 12th at the beginning of the spring signing period.

O’Showen Williams will transfer to Appalachian State to play basketball during the 2017-18 season, after committing on April 7th during his official visit.

In his single season at South Georgia State Williams averaged 13.6 points per game on 44% shooting from the floor, 5.1 assists, and 2.4 steals per game. South Georgia State finished the season 22-10, and Williams was named Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association Honorable Mention and selected to the All-Freshman Team.

Williams scored 1,521 career points and handed out over 500 assists in three seasons at Stratford Academy in Macon, GA, helping lead the Eagles to an average of nearly 23 wins per season, multiple 2-AAA Region Championships, and a 2013-14 GISA AAA State Title.

Williams was also a decorated football player at Stratford, with multiple 1,000 yard rushing seasons as the Eagles’ featured running back.

App State has immediate opportunities in their back court, especially at point guard. Williams’ quickness and ball handling skills make him a primary candidate to run the Mountaineer attack.

Williams has three years of eligibility remaining and will be immediately available to play, joining transfers Nick Hough and Hunter Seacat as the newest members of App State’s active roster.
