Last season, Texas A&M running back Brandon Williams carried the ball 87 times for 379 yards and three touchdowns. In 2015, we may see him trying to shut down opposing offenses. Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin says that Williams will start the year at cornerback, and he's excited about the opportunity.

Here is the full quote from Sumlin:
Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin on senior Brandon Williams moving from running back to cornerback this offseason and to start camp: “He can always come back and play running back, we know that. Let’s see what he can do, and he’s excited about it. If he can help us (on defense), and it helps him in his career, it will be a great move for both of us.”
With a few other capable backs on the team, this move seems like it makes sense for both sides, and has little downside if it doesn't work out. We know that Texas A&M can definitely use help in the secondary.
