Junior wide receiver Preston Williams, listed at 6'5 and 200 pounds, is a member of Scout's Ultimate 300 as one of the Top 300 prospects in the nation regardless of class.
Williams is committed to the Tennessee Volunteers and battled injuries last year, but there's not doubt he is full strength this year, and there's even less doubt that his stock is still on the rise now that he's 100%.
Williams is big, fast, strong, and fluid on the football field. He is a long strider that glides when he runs covering a lot of ground without ever looking like he's moving that fast or having to try very hard. All he's doing is running away from people. He has excellent body control and balance, combined with his size, making him a nightmare to tackles one on one by a smaller defensive back.
Lovejoy played an out-manned Druid Hills squad on Thursday night, and it was predictably a blowout (51-0 at half). Williams only got three touches, but it only takes one time seeing him with the ball in his hands to see that he oozes talent.
Here is a look at him in last night's game.
