Pierre Williams had an exuberant day in Fresno on June 11, as the Patterson (Calif.) wide receiver not only showed his skills in front of the Fresno State coaching staff at the Bulldogs’ 7on7 tournament, but came home with a scholarship offer from the ‘Dogs.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Class of 2017 prospect said he did well enough to land his second offer during the early part of his day on the campus.
“They offered me during the first game I played,” Williams said, who competed with his club team SWAG Factory on the Bulldog practice field.
New defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward was the man who formally told Williams that he received an offer from FS, Williams said. The versatile target - who also plays cornerback for Patterson - has one other offer from Nevada and adds UNLV, Cal Poly and Norhern Arizona have shown interest.
Williams emerged as one of two SWAG Factory players who went home with an FS offer. The other was Atwater (Calif.) Buhach Colony 2018 defensive back L.J. Wallace, who was also given a scholarship by the Bulldog coaching staff during the early part of the tournament.
With the local college football team now on him, does Williams have a desire to stay close to home and commit to the ‘Dogs?
“It would be cool, but education will be a major factor in my choice. I plan to let things play out.” Williams said.
