Williams A Talent On, Off Field

Loyalty brought Marshall Williams to Wake Forest. The Demon Deacon coaches offered Williams early and were loyal to him throughout the beginning of his recruitment. That paid off for the Deacon staff when Williams committed to Wake Forest in June.

Marshall Williams is one of those prospects that Wake Forest fans are becoming more and more familiar with. Like many of the prospects in the Demon Deacons' 2006 recruiting haul, Williams is a talent on the field and is an impressive person off the field.

"He's a great kid," said Riverside coach Todd Spell. "He's the type of kid that will excel at Wake Forest. He runs great routes and he works hard. The last two years at Riverside he's gotten better and better as a wide receiver."

In an attack that didn't focus on throwing the ball, Williams caught 52 balls for 863 yards and eight touchdowns while also adding one rushing touchdown and one punt return for a score. Williams also played defensive back at Riverside.

For his efforts, Williams was named the offensive back of the year in the PAC-6 conference. He was also named All-Conference and All-Area each of the past two seasons.

Williams is scheduled to sign with Wake Forest Wednesday morning and will have a press conference Wednesday afternoon at the high school
