Junior forward Devin Williams has declared he will forego his senior season and enter the 2016 NBA Draft. Devin led the Big 12 in double-doubles this season with 16 and was named to the 2nd Team All-Big 12 squad. Devin's final Big 12 game was superb, a 31-point outburst in a Conference Tournament Final against Kansas.

This is something I've thought about over and over, and I believe that this is the best decision for me and my family," Williams said in a statement released Tuesday morning. "I can't say enough about the three years I have had at West Virginia University. At the same time, I'm grateful to be in this position to be able to fulfill a lifelong dream. I would like to thank my teammates, Coach Huggins and the coaching staff, Mr. [Shane] Lyons, President [Gordon] Gee, all of the basketball support staff and the entire Mountaineer Nation for all their guidance and support during the last three years" Williams said in Tuesday's release. "This has been a tremendous experience for me and I will always be a Mountaineer."

We are going to miss the monster affectionately known as "Mr. Goggles".
