Sophomore forward Yanic Konan Niederhauser announced his commitment to The Pennsylvania State University on April 15 and sophomore forward Xavier Amos announced his commitment to the University of Wisconsin-Madison on Monday. 

When healthy, Williams was the Huskies’ top scorer during his three-year NIU tenure. An ACL tear ended his 2022-23 season just two games into MAC play and a season-ending injury limited Williams to just one game in 2023-24.

In a fully healthy 2021-22 campaign, Williams led the Huskies in scoring at 16.3 points per game. Williams also averaged 3.3 rebounds per game and 1 steal per game. Before his injury in 2022-23, Williams was averaging 17.9 points per game and 4.7 rebounds per game on 47% shooting.

Across 45 games and 38 starts, Williams finished his NIU career with averages of 16.6 points per game and 3.7 rebounds per game. Williams’ best game as a Huskie came against Indiana State University on Dec. 22, 2022, scoring 32 points, grabbing 9 rebounds and swiping 2 steals.
