Two-year starter who carried 207 times for 900 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016. Named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA as a junior after rushing for 1,042 yards and eight touchdowns on 173 carries. Had 66 carries for 325 yards and three touchdowns in 2014.
Smart, patient back with marginal size and speed numbers for the next level. Displays outstanding vision as well as running instincts, effectively uses blocks everywhere on the field and has quick feet. Smooth getting through the cutback lanes, makes multiple defenders miss on a single carry and strings several moves together during a run. Keeps his feet moving and runs hard on the inside. Easily avoids piles or defenders without losing momentum. Gives effort blocking.
Not a strong back, brought down at the point by a single defender and doesn’t picking up much yardage off initial contact.
Williams is a creative ball carrier whose vision and instincts may overcome his lack of next-level measurables.
