Pooka runs well at KU pro day

March 6, 2021

Pooka runs well at KU pro day … Not sure if these are totally neutral results, but former Kansas RB Pooka Williams reportedly was timed in under 4.4 seconds for the 40 at the Jayhawks’ pro day on Friday, the first on the pro day schedule. Not sure who exactly reported the numbers but Williams was listed as having run the 40 in 4.38 seconds. That’s fast, but he’s also an undersized scatback type who only measured in at 5-8.5 and 175 pounds meaning he’s probably destined to be a 3rd down back, rotational type at the next level. Williams also posted a relatively quick 3-cone time of 7.02 seconds, but his leaps were not at all up to what one would expect from a 4.4 sprinter; indeed, Williams managed only a 31.5″ vertical and 9-10 inches in the long jump, both of which would have been among the 2-3 lowest figures at last year’s combine. Meanwhile, the only other results that appear to have been posted from the Kansas pro day are those for LS Logan Klusman, a legit FA candidate, who measured in at 6-0, 233 and posted a 5.13 40 clocking. (Note that both players have the same agent and it may have been the agency that dropped the numbers, suggesting they should be corroborated.)
