Donald Williams to Mississippi Gulf Coast CC

Former Kentucky Wildcat Donald Williams will be transferring to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. I spoke to Gulf Coast assistant Patrick Wilcher earlier and he confirmed the reports that Williams has signed:

"We have signed Donald Williams. We are located in Perkinston, MS (between Hattiesburg and Gulfport). We have a very strong athletic tradition. During the upcoming season we hope to reach the 1000 wins milestone. This past season we won the Region XXIII Tournament and advanced to the NJCAA Sweet Sixteen in Hutchinson, KS. This was the fourth time since 1990 that we have made the NJCAA National Tournament. In 2007, we were the Region XXIII Runner-up. We have had two NJCAA All Americans in the past 3 seasons. We have had a lot of success with Division I transfers and we are very excited to add Donald to our program. We think Donald can be a big contributor for us next season. We will look for him to play a lot of minutes and be a leader of this year's team. We've had a solid program at Mississippi Gulf Coast over the years and we think Donald can help keep us among the nation's elite."
