Notebook: No update yet on RB Pooka Williams' availability

University of Kansas football coach David Beaty didn’t provide many particulars when the team on Saturday kept ballyhooed freshman running back Pooka Williams out of the lineup for the season opener due to a “non-disciplinary matter.” Two days later, Beaty didn’t have much new information to make public, either, during his weekly Hawk Talk radio show, other than to say the coaching staff hopes there “might be” an update this week on Williams’ status.

Jayhawks think each of the top 3 RBs could be 'explosive'

Herbert, Dom and Pooka Williams all potential starters

Next to running back on the Kansas football team’s published depth chart this week, you can find the names of three players, each separated by an “or.” When the Jayhawks make their season debut Saturday against Nicholls State, the starter might be junior Khalil Herbert. Or it could be sophomore Dom Williams. Or just maybe true freshman Pooka Williams will be the first to line up in the backfield. By Benton Smith

Tom Keegan: How many games will Kansas football win?

Every starter except defensive end Dorance Armstrong returns on defense. Center Mesa Ribordy, tight end Ben Johnson and part-time starters Chase Harrell at receiver and Zach Hannon from various spots on the offensive line, are the only significant losses to the offense.

Jayhawks think freshman RB Pooka Williams can be 'dangerous' in open field

This past Saturday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, former Louisiana prep football star Pooka Williams was recognized at the Greater New Orleans Male Amateur Athlete of the Year during the Allstate Sugar Bowl’s Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame Banquet. It was an event, of course, Williams couldn’t afford to attend. Louisiana’s reigning Mr. Football, following Williams’ electrifying senior season at Hahnville High, now calls the Sunflower State home. By Benton Smith
