Bio

Isaiah Williams (b. Nov. 3, 1994) is a physical linebacker who used the 2013 season to develop, and hopefully will compete for playing time at both linebacker and on special teams ... if he remains on the team, that is.

Like fellow freshmen Chance Allen and Nick Ramirez, there is mounting speculation that Williams has left K-State, although until players are removed from the official roster online, I continue to profile them as if they're still here.

If Williams is gone, it's not entirely surprising. He allegedly showed up to fall camp last year much heavier than his listed 223 pounds and did so poorly in conditioning that coaches contemplated moving him to the defensive line.

Still, his departure would be depressing in its own right because Williams was a promising recruit from Skyline High School in Dallas, which has become something of a recruiting pipeline for K-State in Snyder 2.0.

A 2012 all-district and all-region pick by The Dallas Morning News, he recorded 68 tackles as a senior en route to a 14-2 record. Williams also lettered three years. He started for the White team in the 2014 spring game, by the way.

During his tenure, Skyline won three district championships while compiling a 28-6 combined record. You can watch his recruiting video here. I though he had the potential to be a three-year starter for us, but what do I know?
