T.V. Williams more than a speedy WR


Class of 2014 wide receiver T.V. Williams (McKinney, Texas/McKinney) doesn’t shy away from a challenge. If someone says he can’t do something, it’s his mission to prove that person wrong.

It’s because of his critics that he’s one of the fastest, most explosive players in Texas in his class. Rarely does he run the 40-yard dash in anything over 4.45 seconds. On multiple occasions over the summer, Williams clocked sub-4.4-second times in the 40, including a 4.31 at a Houston satellite camp, and he’s hoping to break the 4.3-second barrier by the spring.

Speed, however, is only one of a few things Williams wants college scouts to pay attention to.

“I think I run some of the best routes, and I catch everything,” Williams said. “I only have four drops in the last two years, two this year and two last year.

“If you look at my highlight film, you can see I get in and out of my breaks very crisp on curls, comebacks, posts, etc. I close the cushion on routes really well, and I attack the football with my hands.”

Williams, a 5-foot-8, 147-pound slot receiver and return specialist, said he is still looking for his first offer but receives multiple letters each week. He has heard from Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA, West Virginia, TCU and several other schools in the past, but he is hearing primarily from Oklahoma State, Baylor, Washington, Texas Tech and Iowa the most.

Williams currently has 20 catches for 400 yards and seven touchdowns for McKinney. He is averaging 20 yards per catch.
