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:
@TaylorHamm247 Former OU running back Brandon Williams will be officially transferring to A&M. He committed to A&M yesterday while on campus.
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.
