Temple Guard Jeremiah Williams Transfers to Iowa State

Updated: Jul 4




Info and Background:

Redshirt Freshman guard Jeremiah Williams will be coming to Ames after one season at Temple. The Chicago Natives time at temple went well where he has played 30+ minutes both seasons for the Owls. He also averaged 9+ points per game, 3.5 rebounds per game and over 4 Assists per game during both seasons. He shoots around 65% from the free throw line and shot 32% from three point range during the 2019-20 season while that number dropped to 21% last season. He defensive efficiency has grown greatly over the last year, where he increased his steals per game from 1.2 to 1.4 and his blocks per game over doubled from 0.3 to 0.7. Here are some high school highlights from the Nike EYBL circuit:




What this Means for ISU:

Williams fits perfectly in coach Otz’s defensive scheme. He does join a loaded back court for the Cyclones with Tyrese Hunter, Caleb Grill, possibly Gabe Kalschuer (if he returns) and the 3 incoming freshman guards, Lipsey, King and Watson. It will be interesting to see how this effects the back court next season.  Tyrese Hunters and Williams are both great passers so it will be interesting to see how the point guard duties pan out.
