Wake Forest lands OU transfer Alondes Williams

After two season with the Oklahoma Sooners, Alondes Williams will head east to Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons landed a commitment from Williams on Friday.

A 6-foot-5 wing from Milwaukee, Williams appeared in 55 games for the Sooners (24 starts). For his career, Williams averaged 6.3 points (54 2P%) and 2.3 rebounds per game, while playing for Lon Kruger.

During the 2020-21 season, Williams played in 24 games (14 starts; he averaged 6.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. Williams is a career 25 percent 3-point shooter: 21-of-84 3PA.

For head coach Steve Forbes, Williams provides a major boost of athleticism on the wing, too. Williams finished with 16 dunks this season.

Given the high amount of roster turnover this offseason in Winston-Salem, this is a big addition for Wake Forest. Seven different players left the program following the end of the season; sophomore center Ody Oguama was the most recent departure last week.
