NFL 7on7: Preston Williams

NFL 7on7: Preston Williams

Of all the top wide receiver prospects at last weekend's NFL High School 7on7 in Cleveland, it would be hard to argue that the most impressive was Preston Williams. The 2015 prospect showed a size/speed combination that puts him squarely on the recruiting radar.

After watching Lovejoy (GA) wide receiver Preston Williams for two days at last weekend's NFL High School 7on7 in Cleveland, it's hard to imagine a wideout having more raw physical skills in the junior class.

Williams, 6-foot-5, 190-pounds, has a size/speed/athleticism combination that you just do not see with high school juniors. It's easy to see why college recruiters have identified Williams as a top target.

"I didn't play my sophomore year because of an injury, but I kept working to get better once I was cleared to work out again," Williams stated. "My talent has always been there, but I couldn't play last year so people didn't know a lot about me."

"As college coaches stopped by my school in the spring, they could see the ability I have to play the game," he added. "I still have two years left in high school, so I think I'm going to do great things in my career."

Even without sophomore film, Williams already holds several big-time offers. More could be headed his way this season as more schools see him in person.

"I think I have close to 13 offers," Williams reported. "Schools like Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, West Virginia, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech have offered, and Georgia and Florida say they're close to offering. I only went to one camp, at Tennessee, and they offered. I really liked everything about them, and they are "Wide Receiver U" to me."

"I did great at the Hoover Passing Camp, and Alabama offered after they heard about me," he explained. "As other schools came to see me run track, I got more offers. I do the triple jump and the long jump, and I also run the 4X100 and 4X400. Georgia Tech has offered me for football and track."

EVALUATION: At this stage of his career there is nothing not to like about Preston Williams, and if he refines his God-given talent the sky is the limit for him. He is a very tough cover man-to-man, especially in the red zone and he has the jumping ability to go up and over defensive backs. Definitely a player worth watching in the class of 2015.
