Keyan Williams, a Fresno State redshirt freshman in 2015, will be transferring to Lincoln. With his father on staff, it's very possible a hardship waiver could be granted, meaning he would not have to sit out in 2016. 

Williams caught seven passes for the Bulldogs this season, all coming in week one against Abilene Christian. In the second week of the season, Williams took a helmet-to-helmet hit with a Ole Miss defensive back according to the FresnoBee. It sidelined him for quite some time.
