THE BARBERSHOP IN the Washington State football complex will have a new genius in 2022: San Diego offensive lineman Kendall Williams. The 6-4, 285-pounder is expected to sign Wednesday and he takes it seriously — he already runs a barbershop out of his garage and is planning on opening up a bunch of ’em after his football playing days are done.
“I’m a full-time barber when I’m not playing football,” Williams tells “I have my own barbershop in my garage.”

For Williams, the calling was a rather simple one. He liked his own hair and wanted to learn how to cut it and style it himself.
“I just kind of watched a YouTuber who cut hair,” Williams said. “And growing up I would cut my friends’ hair, line my own hair up. And then sophomore year when I was around 15 is when I actually started taking it seriously.”

AND OF COURSE, there is a barbershop at WSU. And while the competition figures to be there with several Cougar hair stylists, it figures to become Williams’ new “office.”
“I was amazed,” Williams said. “It’s a whole little station, there’s a little counter to put all of your supplies on and then the barber chair is nice. I just like how it’s its own little space.”
This isn’t just a hobby for Williams: he plans on pursuing it beyond football and wants to make a career of it when his time on the football field concludes, whenever that may be.
“I plan to open up barbershops after college and everything,” Williams said. “I’m majoring in Business to learn the ins and outs of that side of things.”
Williams of course will need to find the balance between being a scholie football student-athlete and cutting hair. But he said that’s the benefit of doing things on his own schedule, that he can choose when and where while still bringing his best to the field every day for WSU.
“Since I work for myself, it’s kind of easy,” Williams said. “Whenever I’m not playing football, I can just post on social media that I’m available to cut hair.”
For any who might want to avail themselves of his services: Williams said his signature haircut is a mid-fade or a high taper. 
On the field, Williams is headed to WSU after verbally committing last weekend shortly after his official visit. He’s expected to sign any moment (and may have already by the time you reads this), and get to Pullman this summer, enroll in summer school and join the program long before fall camp kicks off in August.
