Former UNC running back to transfer to South Carolina

Looks like the Gamecocks will be getting a former 4 star recruit via transfer

According to reports from The State and 247Sports, former UNC running back Ty'Son Williams is looking to transfer to the South Carolina Gamecocks football program. Williams, a local product out of Crestwood High School in Sumter, SC, is looking to pay his own way to school during his transfer year through the GI Bill as his mother is in the United States Army.

However, there might be some complications as UNC has already blocked his transfer to several other institutions because of future scheduling. With the Gamecocks slated to play the North Carolina Tar Heels in 2019, this may complicate matters in the transfer process.

Williams, a four star recruit out of high school, would bring a boost to the Gamecock offense starting in 2017. If he is able to transfer, Williams would have to sit during the 2016 season due to transfer rules but would still have 3 years of eligibility starting in 2017. But with a backfield that currently consists of unproven running backs, the Gamecock coaching staff would certainly welcome Williams into the program.

Williams recorded 19 carries for 57 yards last season in his true freshman campaign, with one of those carries going for 4 yards against the Gamecocks.
