Episode 142: Jaylin Williams
Jaylin Williams is all Arkansas. The Fort Smith native grew up watching and rooting for the Razorbacks. Guys like Bobby Portis and Daniel Gafford. That upbringing fueled Williams’ dream to represent the Razorbacks and prove to kids growing up across Arkansas that you can stay home and accomplish great things. But Williams wouldn’t have gotten to this point without hard work, something he learned from his former high school teammate and Razorback Isaiah Joe. The work paid off, and the offers started rolling in, but Williams only had eyes for Arkansas. And after a slow start to his freshman season, Williams came on strong down the stretch for the Razorbacks and made his way into the starting lineup for the Hogs’ NCAA Tournament run. Off the court, Williams’ personality is just as infectious as it is during a game. He brings the energy, has fun… and will do whatever it takes to help his home-state team win.
