Williams-Goss averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game as a freshman in 2013-14. His father, Virgil, told the News Tribune last week that the NBA draft was a “serious consideration.”
Williams-Goss, a native of Happy Valley, Ore., was selected as a member of the Pac-12 All-Freshmen team and was considered to be in the running for the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year award, which was won by Arizona forward Aaron Gordon.
Huskies fans likely are breathing a sigh of relief. Williams-Goss will be UW’s leading returning scorer in 2014-15, and will likely begin the season as one of the Pac-12’s premier point guards.
C.J. Wilcox and Perris Blackwell were UW’s two departing seniors from the 2013-14 season. Fourth-year junior forward Desmond Simmons left the program last month and plans to transfer.
