COLUMBIA, S.C. — Former South Carolina running back David Williams has enjoyed a nice start to his
first and only season at Arkansas.
Williams, who transferred after graduating from South Carolina earlier this year, has rushed for 203 yards and 4 touchdowns
over 43 carries this season for the Razorbacks.
“I’m happy for David,” Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said. “David is a good young man. He did everything
we asked when he was here at South Carolina. He came to me when the year was over, said he wanted a fresh start.
“He was graduating in May and I totally granted his wish and opportunity. … He’s a first-class person.
He’s a really good football player. I wish he was here, but at the end of the day, he wanted a fresh start.”
In three seasons at South Carolina, Williams rushed for 794 yards and 5 touchdowns. His career was originally supposed
to finish at UConn. That was until Arkansas coach Bret Bielema and athletics director Jeff Long approached Muschamp at the
SEC meetings earlier this spring.
“At the end of the day, he’s out. It’s what David wanted to do and I had no problem with it,” Muschamp
