Scout.com ranks Williams the 28th best wide receiver in the nation and a "four-star" recruit. Superprep Magazine and Scout.com's Allen Wallace referred to Williams as the "next Steve Breaston". Maurice, like Breaston, played quarterback in high school but colleges prefer him as wide receiver. He chose the Panthers over scholarship offers from WVU, Penn State, Syracuse, Iowa and Maryland.
Williams was the 19th player to join the Panther Class of 2007. He completed 44 of 92 passes for 1,193 yards and scored 11 touchdowns as a junior. He rushed for 442 yards and scored 9 touchdowns on 83 carries.
The PantherDigest.com will be speaking with Williams about his commitment tonight. Maurice, known as "Mo", is expected to initially play wide receiver.
