Who says SMU players don't get drafted?
(Cue "Sweet Georgia Brown.")
Williams on Tuesday was selected by the Harlem Globetrotters as part of their 2010 Draft Class, the organization announced. The 6-foot-1 Williams, who hails from Jamaica, N.Y., led the Mustangs in scoring and was fourth in Conference USA at 16.6 points. That is the highest rank for a Mustang since joining C-USA.
Among others chosen by the Globetrotters in the team's annual player draft were Mark Titus of Ohio State; 2010 College Slam Dunk champion Marqus Blakely of Vermont and Slam Dunk runner-up Chris Roberts of Bradley. Roberts is from Fort Worth and played at fabled Dunbar High School.
Williams, no doubt, could add some nifty dribbling and eye-popping shot-making, while Roberts is sure to please with his crazy dunking ability.
All players will be extended an invitation to fall training camp to vie for the honor of joining the Globetrotters for their 85th consecutive season of touring the world.
