Compton's Williams is a versatile playmaker

Having a talented tandem at wide receiver is a luxury at any level of football, but at the JC level it's even more of a commodity. We've already previewed Compton WR Jeremy Lefrance and his partner on the other side, Chris Williams (6-0, 180) is another player to watch out for this fall. He's hearing from quite a few schools and already has an offer to his name.

"I have an offer from Ole Miss and I'm hearing from a lot of different schools," Williams said. "Washington, Washington State, Oregon State, Grambling and some other schools are sending me stuff."

Williams plays both ways for the Tartars and said, while he loves playing wide receiver, he thinks he'll end up at corner at the next level.

"I feel my coverage skills are my best asset," Williams said. "My quickness and how I break on the ball I think are equal to anyone."

At Capital High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana Williams played quarterback and saw interest from Akron, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

"They all liked me at quarterback," Williams said. "I was a passer, not just a runner but I ran around a lot. I liked to throw the rock though. It was a lot of fun, but I didn't mind switching to receiver when I got to Compton."

Williams split time at wideout and corner for the Tartars last year and was also a kickoff and punt returner.

"I loved returning kicks and punts," Williams said. "The potential for a big play is always there and I love setting out team up for good field position when I have a chance."

Williams plans to visit Grambling next month while at home visiting family and said he'll graduate in December and have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
