Williams out of draft

Mike Williams

The Supreme Court today ruled against Maurice Clarett's attempt to enter this weekend's NFL draft as they "found no reason to overturn" a lower court's stay. The decision also impacts Mike Williams as the former Trojan wide receiver must now wait for the courts to decide his future.

The Supreme Court today ruled against Maurice Clarett's attempt to enter this weekend's NFL draft as they "found no reason to overturn" a lower court's stay. The decision also impacts Mike Williams as the former Trojan wide receiver must now wait for the courts to decide his future.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she could find no reason to overturn a lower court's stay that prevents Clarett and other underclassmen from entering the draft. There is still a chance that Clarett and the other underclassmen, including Williams, will be declared eligible for a supplemental draft if the court rules in their favor at a later date.

There is a chance the NCAA will allow the players to regain their college eligibility, even if they have signed with an agent, due to the unique circumstances involved.
