C-USA School Is The First To Offer Hinds WR

Hinds WR Javon Wims (6-4, 212) recently received his first offer and more four-year programs are looking his way. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented wideout to get his thoughts on early recruiting as well as the start of his sophomore season and what sets him apart on the football field...

"I have an offer from Southern Mississippi," Wims told JCFootball.com recently. "They just offered. They called and they said they were offering me.

"I was really excited and so was my family. They know how hard I have worked to get to this point and they are proud of what I have done so far."

In addition to his offer from the Golden Eagles, Wims has also been hearing from other Conference USA and Sun Belt programs.

"I am an all-around receiver," Wims said. "I run a 4.5, so I can get down the field pretty well, but I think I am probably your prototypical possession receiver. I have good size and I know how to run routes and use my size to beat a defender, but I can do whatever it takes to be successful."

This past offseason, Wims focused a lot on his overall game, but because of his size, he wanted to get stronger so that he can be that much more physical with defensive backs that will face off against him on a weekly basis.

"I lift weights regularly and work with my position coach on releases off the line also the mental aspect of football," Wims noted. "I have been learning how to read coverages and leverages so that I can set up defensive backs. I think I became a more overall player than just a deep threat."

Wims got off to a great start this season, hauling in six receptions for 107 yards and two scores as he helped lead Hinds to a 32-28 win over Holmes last Thursday.

The sophomore will finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
