Pooka Williams hardly needs an introduction to Jayhawk fans. The talented and electrifying running back has already established himself as one of the best in Kansas history, becoming just the second to ever rush for more than 2,000 yards in his first two seasons. And in his eyes, he’s just getting started. Originally from New Orleans, Pooka excelled as a four-star prospect who led his high school to the state championship game as a senior. He had his pick of major college football programs. So why Kansas? Pooka has repaid KU’s faith in him on the field, while continuing to make strides off it. And as he enters his junior season, he’s made his intent clear: He wants to help the Jayhawks build a winning program under Les Miles.
