Rejoice, college basketball fans! Grant Williams just announced he is staying in the NBA Draft, ending his career as a Tennessee Volunteer. The 6’7″ forward/flopper extraordinaire shared the news with the help of Shams Charania at Stadium:

Last season, Williams averaged 18.8 points and 7.5 rebounds for the Volunteers, hitting 56.5% from the floor. He averaged 20 points and 7.3 rebounds in his games vs. Kentucky. This is obviously a big blow for Tennessee, but really, it’s a win for college basketball because we never have to endure his shenanigans again.
Tennessee lost the game — and sole possession of first place in the SEC — because of this play by Grant Williams.

Seriously though, best of luck to Williams. Flopping aside, he’s a good kid.
