CCSF WR Terrence Williams Steps In

Having a big, fast wide receiver is a necessity in football in the 21st Century and an intriguing on for this fall could be City College of San Francisco WR Terrance Williams (6-5, 225).

The transfer from Eastern Illinois will do his part to fill the shoes of Mo Purify (Nebraska) and Aaron Straiten (UNLV).

"I just got here about three weeks ago and I'm loving it," Williams told  "I had never been out on the west coast before, this is my first time, and it's a lot better than I thought it would be."

Williams went to Norland High School in Miami, Florida and didn't receive a lot of attention from D-1 schools, but that doesn't mean he didn't keep dreaming about playing for one.

"I had offers from Eastern Illinois, Central Michigan, Southeastern Missouri, Utah State and Howard," Williams said.  "I chose Eastern (Illinois) because there were a lot of Florida guys up there and the place seemed pretty cool so I committed there.

"I redshirted my freshman year after I broke my pelvis running a route in 7-on-7's and when I was running I just twisted weird while I was running hard.  So I had to rehab.  Then this past year, I tore my hamstring and had to rehab that.  That's when I decided that I wanted to go Juco and get to D-1 because I've always dreamed of playing D-1 ball."

So he did some research and after an exhaustive process he chose CCSF to help him get to the next level.

"After all we did to look at it, City College was the best fit for me," Williams said.  "They have a good reputation for getting guys to the next level and they have a great program and great coaches here.

"I'm already feeling really comfortable here.  My QB is cool.  In fact we just got done throwing it around about an hour ago.  My teammates are all cool and I love our coaches.  In like a day or two I was feeling pretty comfortable here."

To go with his tight-end type size, Williams also has good speed to get deep.

"My freshman year at Eastern I ran a 4.51," Williams said.  "The other day I ran a 4.47, but I don't know how accurate that one is."

As far as recruiting is going, it's at a standstill at the moment, but that's only because Williams just arrived on campus.

"Stanford has told me they will be recruiting me this fall and I know I like Florida, Miami, Oregon and Boise State," Williams said.  "They all throw it around a lot and UM is my hometown school.  I like those four the most right now."

Williams, who was a full-qualifier out of high school, plans to leave in December, but he may have to wait until May.  Either way, he will have two years to play two at the next level.
