Wisconsin’s Bryson Williams signed with the program on Dec. 20, 2017 and is an early enrollee at the University. While there was a possibility of Williams taking a redshirt for the 2018 college football season, the defensive tackle may have put that notion to rest on Thursday thanks to his work in the weight room.
Williams released a video on Twitter of him squatting 550 pounds, doing three reps while his Wisconsin teammates surrounded him and cheered him on.

According to 247Sports, Williams was a 3-star prospect, and the No. 3 overall player from Nebraska in his recruiting class. Among defensive tackles in his class, he is ranked No. 67 overall.
He will join a Wisconsin team that went 13-1 in 2017, which included a 34-24 win over Miami in the Orange Bowl.
He is looking to be a rotation player on Wisconsin’s defense this upcoming season, as he has a good chance to earn the backup nose guard position. Wisconsin’s defense was ranked No. 4 in the nation in total defense in 2017.
Wisconsin will kick off its 2018 season at home on Aug. 31 against Western Kentucky.
