Daivien Williamson names top 5, Wake Forest included

East Tennessee State transfer guard Daivien Williamson has named his top five options for next season: Georgetown, BYU, Tulsa, San Diego State and Wake Forest.

Williamson entered the transfer portal two weeks ago; he spent the first two seasons of his college career playing for Steve Forbes at ETSU.

Forbes, who recruited Williamson out of high school, can pitch familiarity on multiple levels, too. Williamson is from Winston-Salem. Back in April, Wake Forest landed another transfer from Winston-Salem: Isaiah Wilkins via Virginia Tech. Wilkins committed to Wake Forest when Danny Manning was still the coach, but has remained committed.

During the 2019-20 season, the 6-foot-2 Williamson averaged 10.4 points, 2.6 assists and 0.7 steals per game. Williamson also shot 37.3 percent on his 3-point attempts (3 3PA per game) — a theme of his two-year run with ETSU.

In 67 career games (30 starts), Williamson connected on 65-of-172 3-point attempts (37.8 3P%); his career true shooting percentage sits at 61.1 percent. Williamson is a career 82 percent shooter from the free throw line, too.

Last Sunday, Marcus Watson, a 3-star point guard, became the third 2020 Wake Forest signee to get a release from his letter of intent.
