This BYU Football Player Was Kicked Off His Team For Having Sex–Now He’s NFL Bound
Jamaal Williams had a wild run during his college career as a running back for Brigham Young University, but he finally made it through and has big expectations for himself at the next level.
In a lengthy piece by Bleacher Report highlighting the intense training he’s put himself through with his uncle to prepare for the NFL, Williams reflected on his time at the Mormon school where he didn’t exactly fit in.
As a freshman at BYU, Williams was scolded for getting caught in a girls’ dorm too late. In 2014, he was suspended for a game after a teammate ratted him out for drinking. In 2015, Williams slept with a female student and after her roommate told on them, he was kicked out of school for a year.
Although it angered him at the time, he’s able to understand why it happened and laugh about it now –as are NFL coaches.
“When you’re mad,” Williams said, “you’re like, ‘f–k this, f–k that, f–k all of them.’ You’re mad. But at the same time, you signed the Honor Code. So there’s nothing you can really be mad about.”
In addition to the “mistakes,” which Williams openly talks about now, he tore his ACL in 2014. Despite the apparent “death sentence” to the standout running back’s football career, he worked hard to overcome it all and finished what he started at BYU.
When he returned to school after his one-year hiatus for having sex, Williams told the woman he was caught with “I ain’t f–king with nobody.”
Williams didn’t drink, he didn’t go out partying, he didn’t go chasing any more girls, he was there to play football and that’s what he did. That dedication resulted in 1,375 yards and 12 touchdowns making him BYU’s all-time leading rusher.
He’s projected to go in the fourth round of the NFL draft, but he’s expecting to go higher.
