One of the most coveted wide receivers in the country, 2014’s KJ Williams, wants to make a huge stamp on Syracuse football. The Bethlehem, PA native and Liberty High School senior committed to the Orange a few weeks ago. KJ gave a “soft verbal” but feels very confident and certain about his decision. The Fizz caught up with Williams and he’s thrilled to be mentioned in the same breath as some former Orange standout playmakers:
“It feels great. Some great receivers played at Syracuse. Marvin Harrison, Coach [Rob] Moore. That’s a great opportunity for me and to be up there with those guys feels really good.”
KJ told The Fizz wide receivers coach Rob Moore wanted to coach him for awhile. Moore, as well as Scott Shafer and George McDonald, recruited Williams together after he was convinced by AJ Long to look at SU.
As Williams’ cousin, Long told us he and KJ have the talent and chemistry to become the best QB-WR connection in all of college football. Williams loves his cousin’s spark, and is right on board with his prediction:
“AJ definitely is a talker. Me and him have a great connection out there on the field. I don’t even have to run the right route and I know he’s going to get me the ball. That should be a great thing to watch.”
Williams says Syracuse fans are awesome and in his mind separated themselves from the rest of the country. Hopefully a year from now he’s reeling in touchdowns on the Carrier Dome turf in the Loud House.
