A day after losing a point guard, Georgia State picked up one with Isaiah Williams deciding to transfer from Samford.

Williams, a 6-foot-1 native of Buford, averaged 11.9 points and 3.4 assists per game last year in winning the Southern Conference’s freshman of the year. He had an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.6.
“I felt like it was the best fit for me,” he said.

Backup point guard Jaylen Hinton decided earlier this week to transfer from Georgia State.

Williams visited Georgia State’s campus on Wednesday and said his decision came down to the Panthers and North Carolina-Wilmington.

He will work out with the Panthers this summer and enroll in the fall. He will sit out a year, per the NCAA’s transfer rules.
