Scout's Take: Purdue WR commit

Purdue just picked up a talented wide receiver commitment from Florida so lets take a closer look at him as a prospect.

What to Like: The Big 10 has always been known for producing quality big receivers and Williams brings that to the table. He's a legit 6-1 and close to 200 pounds and is very physical coming off the line of scrimmage. He does a nice job competing for balls in the air, will catch the tough passes over the middle, and will be a factor in the running game with his blocking skills. He has some big play flair as well and is really clicking with Pace quarterback Stephen Morris this season. He played at Miami Springs last year and has since transferred.

What may concern you: While he has ideal size to be an outside receiver in college, he's not a speed burner. He's not going to run away from too many people but he's fast enough. He caught just 10 passes as a junior last season so it's not like he was lighting the scoreboard up as a junior. He's starting to make a lot of plays so far in Pace's new offense, however.

Bottom Line: Purdue continues recruiting the state of Florida with a passion and with Williams, they're getting a good possession receiver from one of the state's top private school programs.
