Nebraska hoops lands Charlotte transfer Brice Williams
Nebraska double-dipped on Wednesday.
Shortly after Bradley transfer Rienk Mast announced his commitment to the Cornhuskers, Charlotte transfer Brice Williams did the same.
A 6-foot-7 wing from Huntersville, North Carolina, Williams is coming off a breakout season for the 49ers that saw him earn a spot on the All-CUSA Second Team. He has 2 seasons of eligibility remaining.

Williams came off the bench throughout the early part of Charlotte’s 2022-23 campaign, but emerged as a starter in 13 of his final 15 games. And yet, he led the team in scoring at 13.8 points a night to go with 5.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists. He shot 48% from the field and 40% from the 3-point line.
After Charlotte (22-14) won the CBI, Williams took home tournament MVP honors. In 4 games, he averaged 16.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.5 blocks.
For coach Fred Hoiberg, Williams provides a veteran scorer. Williams reached double figures in 23 of his 36 games. He scored 20 or more 9 times and, in December, logged back-to-back 31-point outings. Williams is a career 40% 3-point shooter who has also shown a knack for getting to the rim.
