South Carolina running back Ty'son Williams has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, according to a new report this morning.

Williams has already graduated from South Carolina, so he will be immediately eligible at his next stop. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

Williams is the fifth South Carolina player to enter the transfer portal so far this offseason. A player entering the portal doesn't mean he is definitely transferring, but it enables the player to have contact with other programs and explore his options.

SEC Network analyst Cole Cubelic first reported the news regarding Williams.

Williams, a transfer from North Carolina, appeared in eight games for the Gamecocks this season. He rushed for 328 yards and four touchdowns on 70 carries while adding nine catches for 152 yards.

In 2017, Williams rushed for 471 yards and a touchdown on 95 carries. He sat out the 2016 campaign after transferring from UNC.

A four-star recruit in the class of 2015, Williams played in six games for the Tar Heels as a true freshman. He rushed for 57 yards on 19 carries.
