Re: David Williams: Redshirt or Play Him
I don't think Williams will be put in unless there's s problem or injury. Redshirt status means nothing more than the possibility of keeping a player for a 5th year if he doesn't play at any point during one of the 5 allowed to use eligibility. It gives a player a year to develop physically and mentally as well as learning the game. Williams seemed to me, from HS film to have excellent vision to go with his speed and cutting ability, and quick acceleration as well. He certainly needs time in our system to develop, but if the coaches think winning or losing a game will be affected by what he can likely do, he will probably play. If not, I doubt he will.
