Congrats to Jamaal. For a guy so slight in stature, he runs very hard between the tackles. Now if they can just design more plays to get him the ball on the edge, he could use his breakaway speed more often.

Not a bad season for a kid that thought BYU was a Div.II school!!!

Go Cougs!!! Rise Up!!!

So very glad he is just a sophomore! Looking forward to seeing him for 2 more years!

Slight in Stature? He is listed as 6' and 200 lbs. thats a pretty solid kid. perfect size for running back. He is an absolute stud! 2 more years of watching him in a BYU Jersey! go Jaamal!

Yes, slight in stature. Among the RBs that see playing time, he's the smallest. Pritchard 232, Lasike 227, Alisa 220, Brown 219. He's a strong solid kid, but smaller than most RBs who spend their time running between the tackles.

@ let's roll

True, especially if you compare against the like of TJ Yeldon, Eddie Lacy, Todd Gurley and the other stud running backs that have come out of the SEC in the last few years (my part of the country, so I follow the locals school a little bit). Either way, Jamaal is a stud but could use a few more pounds in order to take the beating his body takes by carrying the ball so much in this offense.

Re: let's roll

Well none of the other non "slight in stature" running backs have over 1200 yards for rushing the season, so I'll take it. De'Anthony Thomas is also slight in stature but I don't think we'd be complaining if he were at BYU.

Go Cougs!

He is a great player. Crazy to think where he started(by thinking byu was a division II program) to now being their best rusher.

Is it just me or is Williams getting faster?

Thanks for the comic relief today. Enjoy the holiday couch in your basement this bowl season.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
