The 2010 SMU recruiting class will focus mainly on defense, but that doesn't mean they are ignoring offense altogether. One wide receiver the Mustangs have been sending a lot of mail to is James Madison's Deaudrick Williams (6-1, 170 pounds). Currently he is receiving interest from North Texas, Tulas, Texas Tech, Baylor, Houston, and SMU.

"I have gotten a quite a few letters from SMU," said Williams. "I really like their offense they are running over there. The campus is nice, it seems like a place that would be really nice to go to."

After a great sophomore campaign where he put up 33 catches for 550 yards and seven touchdowns, Williams made a position switch this last season.

"I didn't play much offense this year, I got a few catches in, but for the most part I wanted to get some experience on both sides of the ball so I played safety," commenting to PonyStampede.com. "I think I looked pretty good out there. I just wanted to be well rounded. You never know if you might need it."

As a safety, Williams (4.57-forty) had 3 interceptions this past season, but will moving back to wide receiver this following year. Most schools are recruiting him as a wide out.

"Next year I will move back to a full-time receiver, but if they need me to play safety I will move over. I'm just trying to do whatever I can for the team," said Williams."

Williams says the biggest thing he will be looking for in a school is one with good academic standing.

"I really want to go to a place where I can focus a lot on academics," said Williams "A place where the classes are not big and a place that I will have a good study environment."

Williams was not able to attend SMU's last junior day, but did visit North Texas' last week.

"I went down(UNT) there last week and they were talking about offering me a full ride. I'm also going to go to Texas Tech's next week," said Williams.
