Williams grew up in Hempstead, Texas, where he was touted as one of the country's top high school running back prospects in 1986.

The highly-contested recruiting battle created a lot of bitterness between the two schools (LSU and Texas A&M had recently revived their yearly football rivalry). Because of it, Williams came to LSU in 1986 with outrageous, perhaps unrealistic, expectations. LSU fans were expecting a Heisman Trophy-caliber running back, but he never became one, partly because of knee injuries. He still had a decent college career, however. Williams ran for over 2,800 yards in his 4 years at LSU, and is fifth in LSU history in career all-purpose yards. In his final season at LSU, he was named to the All- SEC team. Based on this season's performance and his still largely-untapped potential, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Williams in the first round of the 1991 NFL Draft.

Williams was a bust with the Kansas City Chiefs. In his first two seasons, Barry Word and Christian Okoye consistently beat Williams out for playing time. In both seasons, he finished behind Word and Okoye in rushing yards. By 1993, Marcus Allen joined the team and would become the starter, meaning that Williams' days in Kansas City were numbered.
