“I am very happy that Khadim rejoined the team today,” Williams said. “This has never happened in my career, and since his departure, all parties have worked to make sure that this was the right decision for everyone involved. Dream is an outstanding young man who will be able to spend this semester focusing on his academics and getting better in all aspects of his life, on and off the court. I believe this is the best possible move for Khadim and I know his teammates welcome him back to the program.”
