Vols WR commit gets big news

After missing most of his sophomore year due to injury, 2015 Top247 wide receiver Preston Williams (Hampton, Ga./Lovejoy) made up for lost time as a junior. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound wideout caught 56 passes for 1,402 yards and 14 touchdowns, breaking school records for receptions, touchdowns, yards per catch, yards and longest play from scrimmage. He also returned three punts for touchdowns and had two interceptions on defense.

His coach, who also coached NFL veteran running back Tashard Choice, called Williams his best player ever. After evaluating his junior film, Williams got the call Jan. 22 that he would be invited to the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. The Tennessee commitment accepted immediately.

“I am so honored and excited to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and show my skills off to the entire country,” Williams said.

A Top 100 prospect in the country according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite, Williams says schools, and offers, have not stopped coming in. According to Williams, Clemson, Florida and Georgia all offered him on Jan. 21.

"It was an honor to continue to be recruited and get offers, but I am still solid in my commitment to Tennessee,” Williams said. “I have not even thought about another school yet.”

Williams visited Clemson Feb. 1 and plans to visit Florida Feb. 22, with a Georgia visit also in the works.
