J-Will Decision Angered Terp Fans

Jordan Williams, despite weight and conditioning issues, dominated the ACC last season at Maryland, leading the conference in rebounding and finishing second to Nolan Smith in Player of the Year voting. He didn't expect to turn pro, doing so only after realizing his skill levels were improving while training in Las Vegas.

He admits he surprised himself with the decision (he had already registered for summer classes) but he really surprised his fans at Maryland. After hearing he had decided to declare for the draft and hire an agent, the disappointed fans took to Twitter and barraged Williams' account with angry tweets, writes Jeremy Gold of Terrapin blog, Turtle Soup.

Gold details the reasons for what he calls a "a sad episode" and gives his assessment of Williams game in a guest column for the newest Net's hometown paper in Torrington, CT. Bottom line: it may take a while.
