Talking with Oregon Forward, Eric Williams

Williams is a transfer from Duquesne and will have to sit out this upcoming season Eric Williams made the decision to take his talents from Pennsylvania to the West Coast about a month ago and the Oregon fans have made him feel right at home.

He averaged 20.8 PPG, 10 RPG and 2.5 BPG in his senior season at Papillion-La...
