A little upset he didn't see his name on Utah's initial spring depth chart, former fullback Karl Williams said he was determined to make the coaches notice him.
He is succeeding.
Williams is listed as a possible backup at running back along with James Poole and Lucky Radley. Kelvin York, who has been limited in his participation in spring ball due to a toe injury, remains in the No. 1 slot.
Williams, a 6-foot, 243-pound senior, is trying to lose some weight to make him faster, but has impressed the coaches with his physical play as he consistently shakes off, and sometimes runs through, defenders.
The coaches have been happy with the play of both Poole and Radley in spring ball, but Williams is definitely keeping the heat on the other two.
In other depth chart moves, Moana Ofahengaue, a 2012 signee who joined the Utes this spring, is listed at No. 3 at left end and Cameron Taylor is the backup at right end behind Hunter Dimick.
The Utes will practice Tuesday and Thursday from 3-to-5 p.m. and will scrimmage Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.
