More On Larry Williams

Height isn't the only physical factor WVU commitment Larry Williams will be bringing to the Mountaineer football program.

Williams (6-2, 175, 4.5) also brings excellent speed and a physical nature not usually found in cornerbacks and wide receivers.

Williams ran an electronically timed 21.78 200 meters at a regional track meet in Virginia. That, for those unfamiliar with track times, is fast. Very fast.

Williams is not just a blazer, however. He's tough in pass coverage and tackles with aggressivness. He broke a finger in a September game early this season, and only missed a few plays, returning later to catch a touchdown pass.

He has led the Springers to an 8-1 record so far in Virginia's tough AAA classification. Last year he earned All-District, All-Region and All-Metro honors as a defensive back, where he intercepted five passes and broke up another dozen. He also was honorable mention All-District as a receiver.

Williams visited WVU during the Miami game, where the atmosphere around the contest swayed him toward the Mountaineer camp. He has a qualifying core class average, and is working toward reaching a qualifying SAT level.

In addition to his listed schools of interest, Williams also received an offer from Tennessee.
