Navy is the latest to offer T.V. Williams, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound wide receiver from McKinney, Texas. Coach Mick Yokitis visited Williams at his high school in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and gave the exciting young playmaker his ninth D-1 offer. GoMids.com caught up with Williams, who is fresh off an wide receiver MVP performance at a National Underclassman Five Star Camp, about his thoughts on the U.S. Naval Academy. "I have nine offers total and Navy was the latest one," said Williams. "Coach Yo was at my school and he pulled me aside and we had a real good talk. He really liked my speed and thought I'd fit in well into the offense. He said he liked what I can do with in space with the ball in my hands.

"Navy is an up and coming program. I think they have the right coaches there to be successful. What I really like about them is the opportunities after graduation. They have a great Business school and I'd be able to make a lot of connections. The coach told me he could call up multiple billionaires for a job and make triple what he's making. I like what the academy represents. You serve your country in the ultimate way. It sounds like a real good deal."

Williams has been offered by Cal, Houston, Kentucky, Nebraska, and Oregon State among others. Thus far he has made campus visits to Baylor, Houston, Kentucky, and Oklahoma State.

In the highly competitive Texas 10/5A with state champion Allen, McKinney Boyd, and the three Plano's, Williams had an outstanding junior season for the Lions.

"I had 45 receptions for 850 yards and 12 touchdowns," Williams said on his 2012 season, " and also threw for a touchdown. This season I was more relaxed. When I first became a starter as a sophomore it was intense. I had to get used to how fast the game moved. As a junior, I was really comfortable in the game and saw myself as one of the stars on the team. I took to mind to be a contribute in any way possible for our team to be successful. I have good hands, but I feel like I excel most on my route running and utilizing my speed. I've run a 4.31 forty and feel like being faster than everybody else is my biggest asset."

This summer Williams plans on taking most of his visits including one to Annapolis to Navy. He maintains that he's wide open but won't hesitate to commit early if he finds what he's looking for.

"It all depends on the way I feel when I'm on campus," he stated. "I want to have a close relationship with the coaches. I'm looking for stability. When I get there I don't want all of the offensive coaches to leave. I want to take my time and build up good, solid relationships with the coaches."

Next up for Williams is an Under Amour Combine in Chicago next weekend. This spring he's trying to increase his speed by competing in the relay events and the open 100. He reports a personal best time of 10.54 in the open 100.
