Williams, a redshirt freshman for the Buckeyes, came into the season with some big shoes to fill – much like his teammate quarterback C.J. Stroud. Williams is filling in for Trey Sermon who was one of the most electrifying running backs in college football and had big performances toward the end of 2020.

He played a few games as a true freshman last season. He finished 2002 with 64 rushing yards on 10 carries. He appeared in the team’s Sugar Bowl win over Clemson, which propelled the Buckeyes to the national championship.
