When “Tubby Smith” started trending on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, Red Raider C.J. Williamson sent out a message of his own.
The freshman guard, who closed out his high school career as the second leading scorer behind Darryl Dawkins, only averaged 1.7 points in 6.6 minutes per contest.
That limited playing time, paired with the rumors and statements circling through the social media world about the man who recruited him, often makes young players pack up their bags and take their talents elsewhere.
Instead of flight, Williamson chose fight.
