While most of the verbally committed members of Fork Union Military Academy's football team sat out its annual combine, T.J. Williams elected to fully participate.
"I'm still fully committed to Clemson," said Williams. "Basically, if you're already committed you don't have to run, but I'm going to run anyway. [The coaches in attendance] want to clock me."
And run he did, Williams was officially clocked at 4.34 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He did, however, skip the pro agility and L-drill.
Williams, 6-foot-2 170-pound wide out from Tallahassee (Fla.) Leon, committed to Clemson about a year ago and has stuck to his decision. As a reward for his loyalty, Williams will enter in a situation where he has the chance to play right away.
"They're telling my I'm going to come in and play as a true freshman – I'm not going to redshirt," said Williams. "They're going to give me an opportunity; the only thing I have to do is learn the system."
Having no problem learning FUMA's system, Williams collected 22 catches for 400 yards and seven touchdowns during his post-graduate season.
He is expected to enroll at Clemson in January.
