Watch: WVU Four-Star RB Commit Justin Williams Racking Up Yards in Senior Season



East Paulding High School is 1-4 through five games this season, and that’s especially shocking when you see the workload that West Virginia four-star running back commit Justin Williams has handled for the Raiders this season.

Through five games of his senior season, Williams has rushed for 943 yards, caught 84 yards through the air and racked up 1,207 yards of all-purpose yards and scored six touchdowns. He’s flashed blazing speed this season, which when combined with his elusive ability with the ball in his hands, has made him a threat to score every time he touches the ball.

With Leddie Brown likely off to the NFL next season, and a thin backfield of unproven talent such as Tony Mathis, A’Varius Sparrow and Justin Johnson, Williams will perhaps have an opportunity to come in as a true freshman and challenge for a spot in the backfield out of the gate.

With a 6-foot-0, 200-pound frame, he’s already well-built for a high schooler, and his production in Georgia high school football is nearly unmatched.
