Purdue big man Trevion Williams has made a decision on his future.
Monday, Williams announced via Twitter that he plans to enter his name into the 2021 NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility. He was the the leading scorer and rebounder for the Boilermakers during the 2020-21 season.
“After discussions with my family and Coach [Matt] Painter, I feel the need to take advantage of every opportunity given to me, It has been a dream during my entire life to play in the NBA,” Williams wrote. “I have decided to enter my name in the NBA Draft with the focus on becoming the best player I can possibly become, while retaining my college eligibility.”

Williams nearly averaged a double-double for the Boilermakers last season, posting 15.5 points and 9.1 rebounds per game. He also averaged 2.3 assists per contest and shot 52.5% from the field on the year.
Williams posted 11 double-doubles on the year and scored a season-high 30 points in Purdue’s 80-68 victory over Indiana State. One of his top performances of the year came in an overtime loss to Ohio State in the B1G Tournament, when he scored 26 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out 5 assists and blocked 2 shots.
Last season was the most productive for Williams in his three seasons at Purdue.
