“Brandon is a blazer. He's super fast,” Miller said. “He's going to be real good for us.”
At Brookshire (Texas) Royal High School, Williams was more than good. Averaging 9.8 yards per carry, Williams rushed for 2,438 yards and 33 touchdowns, leading Royal's charge into the Class 3A playoffs. Both Rivals and Scout rated him the No. 3 running back in the country.
So far, Williams hasn't disappointed.
“He's a hardworking kid, has got a great attitude,” said running backs coach Cale Gundy. “Got a little bounce to him, a little smile to him; his teammates have taken a liking to him because of his attitude.
“And they see the explosiveness that he has, the way he flies around.”
