Signing as a Sooner: No. 18

JUCO RB Damien Williams has signed with OU.

NORMAN, Okla. — The Sooners have now locked up perhaps the two best JUCO guys in the nation, securing a signature from this guy.

Signing Time: 11:24 a.m. Ranking: Three-star

Damien Williams (RB—6'1"/207): Williams brings the veteran backfield presence OU has been looking for out there on the trails this year. With that, he has nice speed, a 4.5 40-yard dash to be exact, and good ball security. A couple years in the JUCO ranks have primed him for major D-I football.

What he's coming into at the position: He will seriously battle for playing time, but must beat out two of the three of Dominique Whaley, who's still battling back from his broken ankle, Roy Finch and Brennan Clay. All three took snaps for OU last year, and Whaley was the definitive starter until he suffered the injury at Kansas State. Newcomers Alex Ross and David Smith also enter the fray. But Williams almost certainly figures to get some carries since he's such a veteran and ready to play.
