This is a good get!

We won’t realize the significance of this young man choosing the Hogs until the end of the season. Wishing him the best and may him and the Hogs both have a great season ! WPS

Hope he runs for 350 upon his return to South Carolina this fall. WPS!

ESPN profile had him running a 4.44 40 at a combine. What is this kids injury profile at South Carolina? He was highly rated, so something has somewhat derailed his career to this point.

I’ve read quite a bit about him. No significant injuries. Just inconsistency. Seems to have the tools.

One of our major components of risk is reduced for this season - RB depth.

I was very concerned about Whaley and Maleek holding up. Williams could be a perfect fit here with a fresh start.

Gamecock fans are shedding no tears in seeing him gone.

He will provide some much needed depth with Rawleigh’s departure, but he is no game breaker.

Good get. Hope he makes the most of a fresh start. When will he get here?

Perfect fit!!!

SC fans might not be “shedding any tears” over him leaving, but several have been on social media congratulating the Hogs on landing a good kid and a good player. If for no other reason, we need him for our depth at RB. Maybe he can use this last season in college to prove himself. Thanks for being a Hog young man…WPS!

South Carolina’s OL was awful last year-108th in rushing, so none of their backs looked like game breakers.

It will be interesting to see what D. Williams can do behind a better OL playing power schemes, with a FB or H-Back consistently in front of him to block.
He looks like the one year solution to our one year need for a third every down back. This keeps Hammond as a WR who runs jet sweeps and other gadgets and gives Chase Hayden a chance for spot duty(with maybeexplosive play ability) while he starts working on getting a little bigger.

Big get - needed one more back in Whaley’s class and this is a good stop gap.

It’s amazing what a decent O-line, scheme, and a commitment to the running game can do for a running back’s talent. Truth is, South Carolina’s fans feelings are going to have little to do with David’s success or failure this season.

We’ll see.
