Williams, whose nickname is "Pookie," was successful on the gridiron (2,271 yards, 27 touchdowns, four straight state titles), on the track (won 2016 state title in 4x100 relay) and in the classroom (class valedictorian) at Wallace-Rose Hill High School. North Carolina coaches kept him in-state, and then provided some playing time his true freshman season (43 carries, 224 yards, 5.2 yards per carry, five TDs; eight receptions, 58 yards, 7.3 average). He started once in 13 appearances in 2019, rushing for 933 yards and five scores on 166 carries (5.6 per) while also catching 17 passes for 176 yards (10.4) and a TD. He and teammate Michael Carter formed the top running back duo in the country in 2020. Williams was named second-team Associated Press All-American and second-team All-ACC as a junior despite starting only once in 11 contests. He ranked third in the FBS with 19 rushing TDs, sixth with 1,140 rushing yards, and ninth by averaging 7.3 yards on his 157 carries. Williams also caught 25 passes for 305 yards (12.2 per) and three scores while fumbling only once during the year. The dynamic duo set an NCAA record against Miami, rushing for a total of 544 rushing yards between them (236 for Williams, 308 for Carter). Williams joined Carter and others in not suiting up for the team's bowl game to prepare for the NFL draft. -- by Chad Reuter
