Report: Alabama DB Ronald Williams Jr. Out With Broken Arm
The University of Alabama’s secondary has taken a huge early season hit.
JUCO transfer defensive back Ronald Williams Jr. has had surgery on a broken arm according to BamaInsider.
Last season, Williams was a standout at Hutchinson Community College where he recorded 31 tackles, three interceptions and five pass breakups in 10 games.
He was apart of the Crimson Tide’s 2020 signing class and joined the team in January. 247Sports rated the All-American junior college player as the No. 5 cornerback and the No. 14 junior college player in the nation.
“He’s doing well,” Alabama cornerback Patrick Surtain II said. “He’s in his playbook more than ever now. He’s going to play a big part in our defense and we expect big things. He’s doing well right now.”
The Crimson Tide will look to Surtain, junior Josh Jobe, freshman Malachi Moore and Brian Branch, redshirt junior Daniel Wright, and sophomore DeMarcco Hellams in the defensive backfield when it kicks off its season against Missouri next Saturday at 6 p.m (CT) on ESPN.
