Diamond Talk: KeShawn Williams, RB, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff | The two headed-monster of UAPB

Keep an eye on #21 KeShawn Williams of UAPB, this kid is a freak and looks like a future NFL back.

The Golden Bulls have a two headed monster in the running game, and this year they are dominating their opponents.  Earlier today, I was trying to think of players to write about in my Diamond Talk feature, and as I was looking at my scouting list I said I want to do one write up, but felt it would be disrespectful to not talk about both of the UAPB players.

We recently posted our Diamond Talk article on Williams teammate Taeyler Porter and I felt compelled to write about Williams when a scout texted me and said you cannot do one without the other.  He was talking about KeShawn Williams and I agree with that NFL scout.

KeShawn Williams was the starter at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff before sitting out in 2018 using his redshirt year.  Williams was a force to be reckon with in 2017 when he ran for 703 yards on just 125 carries adding another 332 yards in the air on 32 receptions.  Williams is a stout back who is very well put together. He stands at 5100 and weighs 192 pounds. He is fast, can catch the ball well and his change of direction is ridiculous.

This year, UAPB is able to use Williams as Porter as a two headed monster and let me tell you something, it is working well. In four games, Williams has 339 yards and three touchdowns averaging 6.9 yards a carry.  Both Williams and Porter are averaging 84 yards a game. 

Williams is a Pine Bluff native, and I am a huge fan of both Porter and Williams. I feel the UAPB offensive coordinator is doing a great job at feeding both of the men, and I feel both are NFL caliber players.  I love this UAPB team, and they are sneaky good.  Right now they are 3-1 with their only loss coming to the FBS’ very own TCU.  They have been on a roll since, even beating OVC’s Tennessee State last week.  This team could sweep everyone in the SWAC, it will be interesting to see.  Keep an eye on both the running backs because they have the “it” factor you look for in a running back.
