FRESH FACESDAMIAN WILLIAMS
By The Morning News
"The biggest surprise is just the speed of the game. Everybody is just a lot faster," Williams said. "Separation in high school, it might go for six (points). Separation now, two steps later (the defensive backs) are back on your hips."
It will take some time for Williams to get adjusted to facing faster defenses, but it appears likely that the speedy wideout will get plenty of time on the field this season.
Williams has already made some impressive catches over the first week of practice, and he's among the large number of freshman wide receivers who are pushing upperclassmen like Cedric Washington and Cedric Logan for playing time.
Arkansas needs to find a No. 2 option opposite starting wide receiver Marcus Monk. Williams might not get the job, but coach Houston Nutt will certainly give the freshman a look.
Williams has been studying film with sophomore Reggie Fish, and they have tried to learn defensive coverages. It will come in time.
CHANCES TO CONTRIBUTE THIS SEASON: Very Good
