Wisconsin CB announces medical retirement from football
James Williams’ college career will be ending before it had a chance to really begin.
Thursday night, Williams tweeted out that a third knee surgery will end his football career. He was a member of Wisconsin’s 2019 recruiting class, but did not appear in any games for the Badgers last fall due to injury.
Williams tore his meniscus in September 2018, which required surgery at the end of his senior football season in high school. Two weeks into fall camp in Madison, Williams tore his meniscus again.
In a tweet, Williams said that his knee did not get any better following his second surgery, requiring him to undergo a third. That surgery will put an unfortunate end to his career on the field.
Below is the message Williams sent out:
Williams was a three-star cornerback out of Hollywood, Fla. He committed to Wisconsin over offers from 11 other schools that were interested.
