Guy Williamson is out to show college recruiters that he's deserving of a D-1 scholarship offer. Will there be any takers? There are at least two people who think so.

Williamson will be a three-year starter in 2004 on both sides of the football. After watching film of Guy, I see him as an offensive guard at the next level because of his ability to run, get out on linebackers and he’s athletic for 290-pounds.

It’s hard for football prospects in Central and Southern Illinois to get recognized because they are always in the shadow of the Chicago area prospects but Williamson shouldn’t be overlooked.

“Guy (Williamson) has the prototype offensive tackle’s body,” said Mahomet-Seymour coach Jerry Reeder.

“Guy has excellent feet and hands which make him an O-line coaches dream and a defensive ends nightmare.”

After watching film of Williamson, I feel he could be a very good guard at the next level because of his footwork and ability to get out on linebackers.

How good is Guy Williamson? Can he play in the Big Ten? That will be up to the college recruiters to decide but I feel he’s just as good as a few offensive lineman from Illinois last year that ended up in the Big Ten and in the MAC.

However, I also felt that there were a few offensive linemen in the Midwest that are as good or better than Williamson who didn’t receive a single offer.

That’s recruiting and that’s why we love what we do. Keep an eye on Guy Williamson.
