Washington guard Nigel Williams-Goss will return for sophomore year

One of the more inexplicable “will he or won’t he?” sagas with the regard to the 2014 NBA Draft has been going on surrounding Washington Huskies point guard Nigel Williams-Goss in recent days. However, it appears as if he has decided to return to school for a second season under Lorenzo Romar.

As indicated by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, this is correct decision from Williams-Goss. At 6-foot-3, he has great size for a point guard (if he can prove that he’s able to play the position), but aside from that, there isn’t a ton in the way of appeal from an NBA perspective at this stage. For reference, ESPN lists Williams-Goss as the 178th player overall (not a misprint) and the 42nd point guard available to be drafted, and sites like Draft Express and NBADraft.net follow suit by basically listing him as a player who isn’t draftable.

With some more seasoning in college (where he averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists as a freshman), Williams-Goss could turn into a legitimate prospect, but he’s not there yet, and I’m glad someone got in his ear and revealed that tidbit of information.
