With Neal Brown considering holding open WR tryouts and only 2 WRs currently signed on to play in 2014 (Thaddeus Snodgrass and Pitt transfer Demitrius Davis), there are still many WR commits to come. The next place the Wildcat coaching staff is looking for is speed from North Texas. WR Coach Tommy Mainord first planted the seed with TV Williams while coaching at Texas Tech, bringing that relationship to the Big Blue Nation. TV not only has a tenured relationship with the coaching staff, but as the Class of 2014 has done in the past, TV has made friends while visiting UK (he was in town for the Spring Game and Prime Time Camp) telling Rivals’ Justin Rowland, “We all just hung out 24/7. I had a lot of fun with those guys. They’re fun guys to be around.” Developing relationships with fellow wideout Thad Snodgrass and the future QB Drew Barker could work like it did for Boom and Mike Edwards.

When you watch a player like TV Williams play, you have to REALLY pay attention; if not, you might miss him. TV has 4.4 speed, running the outside of his high school’s spread offense like an SEC athlete, racking up 800 yards on 45 catches and 10 touchdowns. Williams isn’t ranked as high as others because of his size, but that shouldn’t be a problem once he gets to UK. He’s fast enough to play in the slot, getting in the open field to make plays (at 5:03 a defender’s ankles are shattered) in Neal Brown’s offense. If Sting believes in Coach Korem’s High Performance program than I believe Williams won’t have a problem packing on the pounds. You cannot discount his high school experience either. Even though he can out-run most of his opponents, Williams does not shy away from running crisp routes. Not only can he make a great double-move to get open near the end zone (2:49), but Williams is great at planting his foot to get open (comeback routes and posts down the middle of the field especially). Williams is the type of wideout Coach Brown loves to run on and off the field to keep legs fresh, making him a great fit in the offense. We will find out if TV will take his talents to the BBN on July 9th.
