Darrell Williams, the former Oklahoma State forward who saw his college career end in 2012 when he was convicted of sexual assault — but has had the case overturned — has some good advice for college-bound players.
“Watch your surroundings and be careful because this could happen to anybody,” Williams told the Chicago Sun-Times this week.
Williams had his conviction overturned in April because jurors made unauthorized visits to the crime scene. He is planning to attend Texas A&M University-Commerce in the fall to complete his degree and to restart his basketball career.
According to the Sun-Times, Williams still maintains that he was wrongfully accused, but the former Cowboys has learned valuable lessons.
“Basically everything is cleared. My name is cleared. It was tough, but I got through it,” he said. “If you see a girl drinking and she is out of control and can’t handle herself, I wouldn’t be nowhere around them." See this story on www.suntimes.com
