Central Florida's leading 3-point shooter this past season Matt Williams has told CBS Sports that he his considering UTEP as a possible landing spot.

The 6'5 Orlando, Florida native had a nice comeback this season after missing the 2014-15 season due to injury.  Williams made 55 3-pointers this past season and averaged 8.1 points per game for UCF.

"I would like to thank the UCF community for accepting me and giving me the opportunity to pursue my degree while also allowing me to play the game that I love," Williams said in a statement to the Orlando Sentinel on April 5th. "I will graduate this summer and transfer to pursue my graduate degree as well as my basketball endeavors."

He started 18 games last season, and was granted a full release from UCF earlier this week.
