Draft Scout Ishaq Williams News
07/22/12 - 2012 ALL-BREAKTHROUGH TEAM, DEFENSE: End - Ishaq Williams, Notre Dame...Of the three blue-chip defensive ends that headlined Notre Dame's 2011 recruiting class, Williams was arguably the most hyped, and easily the least productive as a freshman: Where classmates Aaron Lynch and Stephon Tuitt immediately worked their way into the regular rotation – and, in Lynch's case, onto a few postseason awards lists – Ishaq collected just six tackles in spot duty, prompting a postseason retreat to his home in Brooklyn, N.Y., to reconsider his future. By April, though, it was Lynch who had decided to transfer, taking his talents to South Florida, and Williams who was beginning to look like the up-and-comer after recommitting himself to the Irishover the winter. The latter spent much of spring practice filling in for injured senior Prince Shembo at "Cat" (the hybrid defensive end/outside linebacker position in Notre Dame's 3-4 scheme), finishing with an interception and a fumble recovery in the spring game and likely playing his way into a starting role opposite Shembo in the process. - Matt Hinton, CBSSports.com
