WKU football practice

Defensive back Bryson Washington deflects a pass intended for receiver Kawan Williams during practice Aug. 2.

Western Kentucky wide receiver Kawan Williams announced Friday that he won’t return to the Hilltoppers’ football program.

“After discussing with God, my family and my Coaches I will be transferring from Western Kentucky, I would like to Thank all the coaches at WKU for Everything forever gone have a place in my heart. My Recruitment is back open Decision will be made On 12/28,” Williams posted in a note from his Twitter account.

Williams, a 6-foot, 185-pound wide receiver, signed with WKU in the Class of 2018 from Beach High School in Savannah, Ga.

247Sports rated Williams a three-star prospect. He chose WKU over offers from Ball State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern and Georgia State.

Williams redshirted during the 2018 season.

He didn’t participate with the team during on-field activities, including practice, over the second half of the year, team spokesman Kyle Neaves confirmed to the Daily News.
