T.V. Williams Has Some Serious Speed

A coach once said, fast is fast. He said that once you found a player that ran sub 4.5 it didn't matter how sub 4.5 he was because few people can catch that kind of speed. I have to disagree with him. There is really fast, and I saw that up close last Sunday at Rockwall High School with several players, especially McKinney speedy receiver T.V. Williams.

Williams has an all-time best of 4.31 in the forty. But he ran a 4.4 time and he was disappointed at the Mary-Hardin Baylor one-day camp at Rockwall that the Oklahoma State coaching staff was assisting.

"I was a little disappointed and my hamstring was a little tight and that may have had something to do with it," said the 5-7, 170-pound Williams.

"I thought I performed well and I really enjoyed it. It was the main camp I wanted to attend this summer, the one the Oklahoma State coaches were there. I may go to another one if something comes up," he said.

Williams has a great competitive and lively personality to go with his ability. He always seems to have a smile on his face and he is right, he did perform well. I never saw him drop or even mishandle a pass during the camp.

He has good hands and good route running fundamentals. His explosion shows too as he had almost a 10-foot broad jump and he also has moves that can be reflected in his very fast pro agility drill.

He is a good student with a 3.2 GPA and he has a strong score on the SAT. Schools he has scholarship offers from include California, Houston, Kentucky, Nebraska, Oregon State and Tulsa. Other schools aggressively recruiting him include Oklahoma State, Baylor and Texas A&M.

"I plan on committing this summer," added Williams, who would not go into his favorite schools at this point. "I'm going to talk to my dad about it, and we haven't really talked yet, so I don't want to give those out now."

Williams said he is working out with his teammates this summer, and working toward a big senior season for McKinney and his contributions to the Lions. His teammate David Tachie, a big lineman, was cheering him on at the camp.

"He's my man," said Tachie, who wasn't working out but said he would be at the OSU one-day camp in Stillwater this Saturday. "He's a big part of our team."

Last season, Williams caught 45 passes for 789 yards and 10 touchdowns to go with the 15 passes for 289 yards and 4 touchdowns he had as a sophomore.

Williams was impressive last weekend but so was Garland wide receiver Drashane Glass, who also ran a 4.4. One of the most impressive 2015 prospects in attendance was Davine Ozigbe from Sachse High School. He ran a 4.5 but also had a monster broad jump of 10 feet, 5 inches.

We'll keep in touch with Williams as he gets closer to his summer announcement on his commitment.
