August 23, 2006

Some late roster movement with Providence College in regards to their 2006-2007 line-up. As expected, Brian Rudolph will not be part of the program when school begins in early September, but California native Dwain Williams will be as PC Loses a Recruit, But Gains Another (Providence Journal). It has long been known that Tim Welsh was looking far and near for an additional body for the backcourt. After a recent visit to Providence College, Williams decided that was where he wanted to go to school. Late last spring, Williams was set to attend Miami (OH) in the MAC, but it didn't feel like the right situation. He averaged more than 28 points a game in each of his final three seasons playing at three different high schools in California and Florida. Williams returned home to Riverside County, Calif., this year but did not play basketball because his eligibility had expired. With only two returning guards with experience (Sharaud Curry and Weyimni Efejuku), Williams will join Brian McKenzie and Jamal Barney as backcourt recruits in this class.

Providence hopes Williams will add some scoring punch to their perimeter line-up and some much needed ball-handling abilities to compliment Curry.
