Keith Williams, the Cincinnati Bearcats' leading scorer last season as a senior guard, committed to play for the Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers, the team announced Wednesday via Twitter.
Williams played four seasons at UC, but can play an extra season because of the NCAA's free year of eligibility related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In July, CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reported that Williams said he was receiving interest from WKU, Arkansas, Maryland and Florida.
In April, Williams declared for the 2021 NBA Draft. In June, he entered the transfer portal.
Williams' scoring average increased each year with the Bearcats, from 3.1 points per game as a freshman, to 9.9 as a sophomore, to 12.6 as a junior to 14.3 last season. He also averaged 4.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game as a senior and was named Second Team All-AAC.
Williams ranks 35th on UC's all-time scoring list with 1,156 points.
