His talents didn’t go unnoticed, and after graduating high school, he signed with Brigham Young University (BYU).

Moreover, he showed his versatility in the 2020 season emerging as a reliable receiver out of the backfield for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, tallying career highs as a receiver with 35 receptions for 236 yards and a touchdown.
At the end of the 2020 season, Williams became a free agent. Not wasting any time, the Detroit Lions snapped him up in March 2021 on a two-year deal. Here, Williams aims to make bold strides and reaffirm his position as one of the NFL’s esteemed running backs.
