fab fresh­man to su­per sopho­more

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Ranked by Ri­vals.com as the sec­ond-best re­cruit in Vir­ginia, run­ning back Ryan Wil­liams quickly burst upon the scene for the Hok­ies in 2009. Re­plac­ing the in­jured Dar­ren Evans, Wil­liams raced to 1,655 yards, 21 touch­downs and 10 100-yard rush­ing games.

As Wil­liams en­ters his sopho­more sea­son and Evans re­turns from his knee in­jury, the Hok­ies haven’t seen this much raz­zle-daz­zle in their back­field since Michael Vick elec­tri­fied fans from 1999 to 2000.

Show­ing power and dura­bil­ity at the end of the sea­son, Wil­liams punc­tu­ated his first sea­son with a 117-yard, two-TD per­for­mance in Vir­ginia Tech’s bowl vic­tory over Ten­nessee.
