ASU Wideout Williams returns in a big way

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama State redshirt freshman wide receiver Joe Williams IV said his coaches wanted to make sure he was completely healthy before he returned to the field this spring.

Williams, who was hampered by a hamstring injury last season, looked pretty healthy on Saturday.

Williams caught three touchdown passes for 74 yards during Alabama State’s Black and Gold spring game at ASU Stadium.

“The coaches stayed on me about going to rehab and it paid off,” Williams said. “I feel very good now and it was very fun out there today.”

Williams caught touchdown passes of 17 and 27 yards from junior college transfer Jujuan Young-Battle in the first half.

“Joe’s a very good player,” Young-Battle said. “He’s been in the system and he’s a great asset to me. He knows where he needs to be and he knows where I’m looking for him to be.”
