Bryant Williams Commits to New Mexico

Bryant Williams, a 6-foot, 180-pound wide receiver from Coffeyville (KS) CC, has committed to New Mexico after visiting the campus this past weekend, according to his father Bobby. Williams attended Edina (MN) High and had gotten some recruiting interest from Minnesota.

Bryant Williams has caught seven passes for 127 yards for the No. 20 ranked Red Ravens as they have thrown for just 376 compared to 1,063 yards rushing.

Williams will graduate in December and enroll at New Mexico for the winter seemster. He will have three years of eligibility after redshirting as a freshman.

Williams picked New Mexico, partly due to his relationship with Dave Baldwin, who was named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at New Mexico in January. Baldwin spent the past four years as offensive coordinator and tight ends coach at Michigan State.

Williams had attracted the attention of Baldwin when attending the Michigan State football camp before his senior season. Unfortunately, he was forced to go the juco route.

New Mexico's starting receivers Travis Brown and Marcus Smith have combined for 75 of the team's 117 receptions. The two are seniors, which could give Williams an opportunity to see significant playing time next season.
