Josh Williams Joins Kansas Football After Leaving Nebraska

Former Nebraska Cornhuskers defensive end Josh Williams has landed with the Kansas Jayhawks, the school announced Tuesday. He's the fourth transfer to KU since Charlie Weis took over, and the second from another Big 12 school, following quarterbacks Dayne Crist and Jake Heaps and wide receiver Justin McCay.

He's eligible to play right away, having already graduated. Kansas' defensive line depth chart is wide open, with only two returning linemen boasting more than 10 tackles last year.

From Kansas' release:

After redshirting his freshman season, Williams saw action in 29 games on the Cornhuskers defensive line. A 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive end, Williams played in three games during his redshirt freshman season and then played in all 13 games for Nebraska in both the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Williams, who started two games in 2011, collected 27 tackles during his time in Lincoln. He had three quarterback hurries, one TFL, one forced fumble and one blocked kick during his three seasons at Nebraska ...

He was listed as the No. 19 prospect by the Dallas Morning News in its Area 100, while Rivals.com listed him among the top 50 players in Texas in the 2008 recruiting rankings.
