Williams said in a phone conversation that his release from Iowa State comes with no restrictions and that he didn't consider Iowa State a "bad" school, adding that he felt this move was in his best interest moving forward.
The change of heart for Williams comes just days after his lead recruiter, Matt Abdelmassih, left Iowa State for St. John's. Williams, who played the 2013-14 season at Iowa Western Community College, sat out this last season after having surgery on both shoulders and moving home to San Francisco. He said he hasn't had any contact with other schools.
The loss leaves Iowa State with four open scholarships for the 2015-16 season.
