Elliot Williams, whom earlier this week declared his intentions to transfer from Duke , has decided on his list of schools. Williams possibilities include Memphis, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Kentucky.
The former Dukie said of the four selected schools,
"That's why I'm looking at these schools, because I know them. I know the coaches," Williams said.
Williams is a former McDonald's All-American from Memphis and was forced to return closer to home because of an illness with his mother. If an illness is the main reasoning for the move, one would think that Memphis would be a clear leader, but it appears that Williams will exhaust all of his options.
Williams is applying for a waiver to play immediately due to the illness. The situation is similar to Tennessee's Tyler Smith and there is a decent chance of the waiver being approved. With the aforementioned scenario, Kentucky's chances increase because of the availability of Jodie Meeks scholarship.
There is no timetable on his decision, at this moment.
