KU reinstates Pooka Williams Jr Featured

The University of Kansas has reinstated running back Pooka Williams Jr.

Williams had been suspended since December when he was arrested and charged with domestic battery before reaching a diversion agreement in the case.
He will miss the season opening game against Indiana State.
In addition to the game suspension imposed by Kansas Athletics, the university’s Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards has required that Williams be subject to probation until he graduates, attend monthly meetings with a university conduct officer, complete 40 hours of community service, and complete a sexual violence accountability course through the university’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Education Center.
Williams became the first KU player to win Offensive Freshman of the Year and the first KU freshman to earn first-team honors from the Big 12. He finished with 1,125 yards rushing and seven rushing touchdowns.
