Williams Planning On A Big Sophomore Season

After a big freshman season last fall, 2018 Itawamba WR Terry Williams (5-8, 175) has already garnered pre-season All-American honors and is poised for an even bigger sophomore campaign...


As a freshman last season, Williams hauled in 66 receptions for 910 yards and four scores, earning second-team NJCAA All-American honors in the process.

"I always try to play bigger than my size," Williams told JCFootball.com. "Last season, I played mostly out of the slot, but this year, I'll play both inside and outside.

"I love to go across the middle and I will do anything to help my team succeed."

This offseason, Williams has been hard at work perfecting his craft.

"I'm definitely working on my hand-eye coordination and getting off the press and my speed," Williams noted. "I also am in our playbook, learning our plays better and how to read coverages and defensive schemes. A big thing for me this offseason has been watching film and seeing what I do well, but also what I need to work on and also watching our opponents and understanding what they are trying to do because that will help me and my team to succeed."

Recruiting is just starting for Williams who has yet to receive his first offer.

"There were schools by during the spring, but honestly, no one is really talking to me right now," Williams said. "I can't really control that though, so I just have to continue working on myself and improving as much as I can and when it's time to worry about recruiting, I'll do that then."

Williams enjoyed an outstanding prep career at Southaven (Ms.) High School, but he was lightly recruited as a senior, so he opted to take the JUCO route in order to continue playing ball and garnering more attention from four-year schools.

"No one believed in me because of my size, but I felt like I could play with anyone anywhere, so that's why I came here (to Itawamba)," Williams recalled. "It's a strong program here and I felt like if I had success here, I could have success anywhere."

Williams will finish up his academics in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2017 football season.
