CHARLOTTE, NC - DECEMBER 02: Malik Rosier /

"Mark Richt previously said he doesn’t expect Williams to challenge for the starting job this spring but that he might in August. One UM official said Cade Weldon clearly has improved. He’s big, strong, can throw on the run and has a good grasp of the offense.”"

Williams is known for his passing ability. Miami Football’s official Twitter account called Williams a “Big Time Gunslinger” when he signed in December.

He is currently fourth on the depth chart behind Rosier, Perry and Weldon. Williams has taken some snaps with the third-team offense. This past Monday during his weekly appearance on the Joe Rose Morning Show on WQAM Richt said Williams has been a quick learner.

"“He’s a quick learner and he’s got some really good arm talent, I’ll tell you that…I’ve got all these guys getting good, quality reps.”"

Williams is built a lot more solidly than Perry. That has to be a concern in an offense that likes to use the zone read. Williams is 6’2 206. He’s also more polished as a passer than Perry was at this stage last year.
