Texas A&M will pick up talented running back Brandon Williams from Oklahoma, according to a report.
Oklahoma Sooners running back and former five-star recruit Brandon Williams will transfer to play for Kevin Sumlin's Texas A&M Aggies, according to a report. The move has been rumored on the A&M side for a while (and the Oklahoma side as well) with Taylor Hamm reporting Sunday night that it's been done:
Williams wasn't able to get on the field all that often for the Sooners, gathering 46 touches for 219 yards in his first year. Still, that's hardly a scant workload for a freshman, especially on a talented, pass-first offense like OU's.
He was recruited by Sumlin's Houston Cougars out of high school, opting for OU over A&M, Baylor, Texas Tech and others.
