Michigan State graduate DT Kevin Williams said that "their defense fits me well."
The oft-injured Williams transferred from Nebraska after the close of the 2015 season, but kept his business in the Big Ten by joining Michigan State. The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder said, "They like my quickness, the way I use my hands. They’re a team that likes to get vertical, so my quickness off the ball and lateral quickness really fits their scheme. They like to get after it really aggressively and attack." Serious knee injuries knocked him out of commission in 2011 and 2013 (he was also waylaid by a groin woe in 2015), but he indicated that he is "all healed up from that stuff."

Per 247Sports' Mike Wilson, Nebraska graduate DT Kevin Williams will transfer to Michigan State.

Chalk this one up as a win for Sparty. It becomes even more of a win given that, on Friday, it was revealed that DT Damon Knox would leave the program to pursue a career in law enforcement. Williams was lost to knee injuries in both 2011 and 2013. The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder started two games and appeared in eight during the 2015 campaign. He should provide crucial depth along a line that needs it in 2016.

Nebraska senior DT Kevin Williams has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

Williams was lost for the 2011 and 2013 seasons due to knee injuries, hence the NCAA extension of eligibility. While the 6-foot-2, 280-pound senior's knees have been healthy during the 2015 campaign, a groin injury's limited him to just five games played this time around. ESPN graded Williams as a Top-20 defensive tackle out of high school.

Nebraska redshirt sophomore DT Kevin Williams will miss the 2013 season with a knee injury.

The same thing happened to Williams in 2011, so the third year player now has multiple lower leg injuries on his record. "He’ll come back, it was a pretty clean injury," head coach Bo Pelini said. "We think he will be able to rehab, and he will be just fine going forward." He only played in five games during the 2012 season.
