Clemson’s wide receiver group has been impressing the coaching staff during Fall Camp according to Dabo Swinney. “The receivers have been really good, I’m really pleased,” recently during a session with the media.

“If I had to pick a guy that just got here in the summer, Antonio Williams is the first guy that comes to mind.”

The star of the young receiving group might be freshman Antonio Williams, the former 4-star recruit out of Irmo, South Carolina. Offensive Coordinator Brandon Streeter had high praise for the freshman wideout.

“If I had to pick a guy that just got here in the summer, Antonio Williams is the first guy that comes to mind,” Streeter noted recently.

Streeter also mentioned Williams’ discipline and how few mental mistakes the young wide receiver has made during his short time at Clemson. Streeter also raved about Williams’ athleticism and ability to catch the ball. 

“His knowledge has been the most surprising to me, coming in the summer right before preseason camp and he has very few mental mistakes,” Streeter said. “On top of that, his athleticism is awesome, he’s fearless about going to get the ball and his hands are incredible.”

According to Swinney, Williams is also picking up the offense very quickly which could earn him early playing time for the Tigers.

“We’re trying to get him to learn two spots. I think he feels good about the 5-man and where he is there but we need him to know the 2-man as well,” Swinney stated. “You’ve got to be interchangeable there. He’s coming. He’s picking it up. He had a nice play today. He’s doing a good job.”

Williams will look to make an instant impact this season, perhaps even against Georgia Tech in the Tigers’ opener on Labor Day night in Atlanta.
