FGCU in the mix for Texas Tech transfer C.J. Williamson

The former Red Raider has narrowed down his list of potential landing spots.

Texas Tech point guard C.J. Williamson recently announced he would be transferring from the Red Raiders program. Then on Friday, the 6-foot-6 guard released the final four schools he is considering: Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, UNC Wilmington, and Florida Gulf Coast.

Originally out of Evans HS in Orlando, Fla., Williamson became one of the state's top prospects in the class of 2015. FGCU, and a multitude of other schools, targeted the athletic and versatile Orlando product.

He ended his initial recruitment by committing and signing the Red Raiders. Williamson then played sparingly as a freshman at Texas Tech in 2015-16, averaging 1.8 points in 7 minutes per game.

He is now on the move, and FGCU - which possesses an open scholarship - is right in the mix. If Williamson does end up choosing the Blue and Green, he would be the latest in a slew of highly-touted transfers that the Eagles have reeled in (see: Brandon Goodwin, Ricky Doyle, etc).

UPDATE (Saturday, 11:30 ET)

Williamson announced on Saturday that he has narrowed it down to Florida Gulf Coast, and Virginia Tech. He will head to FGCU tomorrow for a visit.
