Arkansas running back Jonathan Williams underwent foot surgery that ended his 2015 season before it ever began. In fact, that foot injury may have ended Williams’ collegiate career, as well.
According to wholehogsports.com’s Thomas Murphy, Williams addressed the media on Thursday and indicated he will likely enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
Of course, his decision will be dependent on how his recovery from surgery goes.
Jonathan Williams: If the rehab goes as planned, I'm looking at mostly likely going to the next level after this season.

Paired with Alex Collins in the backfield, Williams was part of one of the fiercest running back duos in the nation.
Now, he will just focus on healing his torn ligament and hoping that he will be able to position himself for success at the next level.
Throughout his career with the Razorbacks, Williams totaled 2,321 yards on the ground and 16 touchdowns. His best season at Arkansas came just a year ago when he racked up 1,190 yards and 12 scores.
