Texas honors Hall-of-Famer to be Ricky Williams

  Ricky Williams is Texas' all-time leader in rushing yards.

Ricky Williams was a huge star at Texas in the late 1990s, and his greatness will be recognized when he is inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Dec 8.

To honor the Longhorn legend, Texas released a cool tribute video highlighting Williams’ best performances as a member of the program. No. 34 in burnt orange ran for 6,279 yards and 72 touchdowns in his four years in Austin. As astounding as those numbers are, the optics are equally impressive. Check out the video Texas created to honor Williams:

Zach Thomas, Dick Jauron and Bill Snyder are among several college football greats that are a part of the class of 2015.
