Mikey Williams transferring from Memphis after his arrest, plea deal following alleged shooting

Jan 8, 2024

Mikey Williams won’t play for Memphis after all.

The basketball phenom and social media sensation entered the transfer portal on Monday, Memphis confirmed. The Tigers were in the process of clearing Williams and getting him to join the program when he opted to transfer, the school said.

Williams was one of the best prospects in the 2023 class, but he never made it to Memphis. He was arrested early last year after a shooting outside of his San Diego-area home. A group of visitors showed up at his home one night in March, and Williams allegedly threatened to shoot them. He then allegedly shot their vehicle multiple times as they drove away, though all six occupants of the vehicle were unharmed.
