Texas A&M star Williams returning for sophomore season

(TSX / STATS) -- Texas A&M power forward Robert Williams announced Tuesday that he will return for his sophomore season after considering applying for the NBA draft.

The 6-foot-9 Williams has been projected as a lottery pick but said he wants to further develop his game. He averaged 11.9 points and 8.2 rebounds and was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year as a freshman.

"Although I've grown, I still feel like I would benefit from another year of college," Williams said in a statement. "This will give me more time to mature and develop my game before moving on to the NBA. With that being said I've decided I owe it to myself to stay another year at Texas A&M. Again, I would like to thank everyone for their support and I know next year will be even better."
