 Xavior Williams, Iowa, Player News

  At cornerback, Hankins and Moss have been starters since 2018. Koerner has started since 2019 and Kaevon Merriweather is the newest starter to the group, taking on the strong safety role last season. The five have a combined 68 starts among them. And behind them, Parker is excited about the secondary's depth and the versatility to line players up in different spots. "We'll have some guys I think with flexibility of playing different positions," Parker said. "I see a lot of growth with some guys in the backend with (Sebastian Castro), (Jermari Harris) has done a good job and Terry Roberts has really stepped up at corner. "So the depth is kind of back. I know we have Matt and Riley at corner, but I think it'll be interesting to see how it all pans out. But I think we're in a good spot."

And the Hawkeyes are getting some help from the portal. Cornerback Xavior Williams, a Burlington native, transferred to Iowa from Northern Iowa as a graduate transfer. In three years there, he was a three-year starter and was a first team all-Missouri Valley Conference selection in 2018 and 2019. "(Xavior brings) leadership," Moss said. "He's very, very athletic. He broke the vertical (jump) record in his first three weeks being here. He's a great kid. He's one of my best friends and brings a lot to the (defensive backs) room. "He's a veteran too. Even though he's a transfer he knows how all of it works, how to prepare and watch film. He brings a lot to the table." - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  It's difficult to know where Williams is on the depth chart because Terry Roberts and Matt Hankins - two of the four corners on the spring depth chart - didn't practice. But, at least on Saturday, Williams, the 5-11, 190-pound UNI transfer appeared to be Iowa's second-team right cornerback, with Brenden Deasfernandes at left cornerback. Ferentz said Williams brings a veteran presence and is "not overwhelmed" even though he's learning a new defense. Still, he is like a true freshman in the sense that he is learning a new defense. And he had an injury in the winter, which set back his physical offseason progression.

For those reasons, Ferentz said it's not fair to judge Williams and project his role based on Saturday's open practice. "I don't think you saw today probably what you're going to see in August (from Williams)," Ferentz said. "I think he's got a chance to really help our football team." Williams' receivers were rarely targeted so he wasn't very noticeable during the scrimmage. (Meaning he didn't make any big errors, either.) He left the field a little over midway through the scrimmage. He stood on the sideline with his helmet off for the rest of the scrimmage and walked with a small limp. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  Xavior Williams, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound graduate transfer safety who was a standout in the secondary for three years at Northern Iowa, has transferred to Iowa, he announced via Twitter on Monday. He will enroll at Iowa in January. Williams originally entered the transfer portal over the summer, hoping to play at a school that was set to play in the fall. When it appeared that many schools weren't going to play in the fall, he pulled his name out. He recently put his name in the portal again and picked the Hawkeyes over Kansas State and North Carolina State. - Iowa City Press-Citizen

  UNI defensive back Xavior Williams was selected as an East-West Shrine Bowl All-Star. The game will not be played, but Williams will have the chance to participate in virtual training sessions with NFL personnel and scouts ahead of the 2021 NFL draft. Williams is the third Panther to be selected for a post-season all-star game. Spencer Brown and Elerson Smith were both chosen to participate in the Reese's Senior Bowl. He is the sixth Panther to be chosen for the East-West Shrine Bowl since Coach Mark Farley took over the program in 2001.

In three seasons, Xavior finished with nine interceptions, including a pick-six, two fumble recoveries, including a fumble return touchdown, 33 passes defended and 122 total tackles. He also recorded 896 return yards during his career. He was expected to be a key contributor for the 2020 Panther defense before the season was moved to the spring. Williams, like Brown and Smith, chose to opt-out of their senior season and prepare for the draft. - Northern Iowa Football
