‘Not Done’ -- Cornerback Jaylin Williams Back for More

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - It was unfair, this football practice role reversal that saw Jaylin Williams lined up as a receiver against an Indiana defensive teammate set up for mission impossible.

Cover Williams?

Are you kidding?

Williams is an All-Big Ten cornerback with six career interceptions and 23 passes defended. But he once was a dynamic Tennessee high school wide receiver good enough to total 92 catches for 1,968 yards and 22 touchdowns over his final two seasons.

Head coach Tom Allen's quest to produce more takeaways includes drills in which defensive backs work on their receiving skills.
