Mississippi State is first to offer Terrell Williams a scholarship 

By Jason Lieser

The local crop of Division I wide receivers seems to be expanding every week. The latest to get a major offer is Boca Raton’s Terrell Williams, who is also considered a defensive back prospect.


Mississippi State had been promising Williams an offer all spring and it finally arrived over the weekend.

“It feels great,” Williams said. “I have a lot of family in Mississippi so that’s cool, too.

“They said they’re going to use me like Percy Harvin in their spread offense.”

I know this is a little off-topic, and yes former Florida assistant Dan Mullen is Mississippi State’s new head coach, but I have to wonder how much longer we’re going to hear that Percy Harvin line from college recruiters down here.

Anyway, Williams (5-10, 160) caught 33 passes for 570 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior, and was named to the all-area second team. He has also drawn interest from Troy and Southern Mississippi. Southern Miss already offered his teammate, quarterback Eddie Sullivan.

Including Williams, at least eight area receivers from the 2010 class have received major scholarship offers.
