Winston-Salem, NC (Sports Network) - The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have added some depth to their backcourt as former Robert Morris guard Coron Williams has transferred to the school for the 2013-14 season.

Williams will be using his fifth year of eligibility with the Demon Deacons and will be able to play right away as he will be graduating from Robert Morris this spring.

"We are excited to welcome Coron to the Wake Forest basketball family," said head coach Jeff Bzdelik. "He combines athleticism with an excellent long range shooting ability. Coron's maturity and leadership will be a great asset to our team next season. We are all looking forward to having him join our program."

In the last two seasons Williams started 71-of-72 games for the Colonials and averaged 10.0 points per game, while shooting 42.1 percent from 3-point range.

"I think I can spread the court for this team with my shooting ability, coming off screens and moving to get open off penetration," Williams said. "I can also bring some leadership and experience after playing four years of college basketball."
