Default Elliot Williams transferring from Duke; unspecified family medical reasons

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4283176

DURHAM, N.C. -- Elliot Williams, whose move into the starting lineup provided Duke with a late-season spark, is leaving the Blue Devils after one season because of unspecified family medical reasons.

School officials said Wednesday that Williams plans to transfer closer to his hometown of Memphis, Tenn., to be near family. He is expected to ask the NCAA to waive its transfer rule that would require him to sit out this season, Duke officials said in a statement.

"We fully support him in his efforts to be closer to [his family] during this trying time," coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "He is a good young man with an opportunity to become an outstanding player. We wish him well as he determines his future. He will always be a part of our program and we will always be in his corner."

Elliot Williams to Memphis? I'm not a huge Memphis fan, but I HATE Duke, so this is a little bit of schadenfreude.

Tennessee and Memphis both had recruited him. Who knows...hopefully he fools us and goes to Vandy.

A lot of people thought he was Tennessee-bound out of high school before he picked Duke, right?

Who the hell would play PG for Duke now. We can't play Scheyer at PG fulltime.

Williams isn't a real point guard either, so it shouldn't be that big of a deal except Duke has, like, no perimeter depth now.
