The 6-foot-8 Williams served a significant role off the bench, but was also looking at a diminished role with the addition of Marvin Clark Jr., a transfer from Michigan State. It is possible the Johnnies fill all of them, with one being a much-needed big man on the graduate transfer market.
Williams will graduate and be eligible immediately. They are expected to be involved with a number of targets, including guards Peter Kiss (Quinnipiac), Marcus Evans (Rice) and Michael Weathers (Miami of Ohio), and forward Steven Enoch (UConn).
“Marcus will be one year from completing undergraduate studies and more improved as a basketball student to better his chances later for whatever level of basketball he reaches.” Ellison — the son of former NBA player Pervis Ellison — opted to leave, a source said, over playing-time concerns.
Though he started 26 games and averaged 24.8 minutes per game last season, the sophomore guard likely was going to be replaced in the starting lineup by Arizona transfer Justin Simon and would’ve at best been the fourth guard behind Simon, Lo Vett and Shamorie Ponds.

Two MAAC coaches, speaking on condition of anonymity because Dixon hadn’t signed yet, had differing opinions. English, a player who can score at all three levels — in the paint, from the mid-range and beyond the 3-point line.
Both described him as a scoring guard, but one said he needs to get stronger and improve his decision-making to be a difference-maker in the Big East. “He’s a shot-maker and plays with a ton of confidence,” the second coach said. John’s.” Assistant coach Matt Abdelmassih, known for his ability to recruit quality transfers, led Dixon’s recruitment.
