Trey “TV” Williams Commits to Kentucky

The University of Kentucky upgraded their stellar recruiting class yesterday with the commitment of speedy 3 Star Receiver TV Williams out of Texas. Despite being a 3 Star recruit, most recruiting analysts consider TV as one of the hidden gems of the 2014 recruiting class, as he has great hands, tremendous speed, body control, and athleticism.

Although announcing his decision yesterday, I’ve been told that TV chose Kentucky long before. The reason for his delayed announcement is the fact that he wanted to commit at home in McKinney, Texas. He told several Kentucky commits including Mike Edwards and Thaddeus Snodgrass his choice, and even went as far as to say that he would be “rooming with Thaddeus at UK.”

As for other Kentucky recruits, they are extremely excited to have him on board. I caught up with UK commit Mike Edwards who told me that he believes Thaddeus and TV are going to destroy opposing defenses. Mike had this to say about how he knows Trey will dominate or the Wildcats: “Because he is a quick/fast type receiver and I know he could help us out big. He’s an overall good player.”

UK Tight End commit Darryl Long had great words for TV joining the Big Blue Nation, saying that “He is a great fit for the offense and he is definitely a threat whenever he is on the field!” Darryl also spoke on the threat of having he, Thaddeus Snodgrass, and TV Williams together on offense: “It’ll be the best Air Raid people have ever seen.”

UK CB commit Jared Tucker also had great things to say about the newest commitment headed to UK, saying “TV Williams just brings that swagger to our offense. He’s a guy with a lot of speed which is really going to hurt some defenses out there. He brings another threat not only to our offense, but to our return game as well. He’s a play maker who’s going to help us get where we want to go!”

UK Safety commit Darius West seems to like TV also. This is what he had to say about how he’ll impact the game at UK: “Because he’s another dynamic WR we picked up that’s a slasher and is gonna get the job done no matter the size.” He looks forward to the head to head matchups at practice when they get to UK.

I tried to get the commits to talk a little smack talk with each other about matching up with each other at practice. I asked each defensive player how they’d match up going 1 on 1 going against TV, and the answers I got were pretty comical, especially from Mike Edwards. “The matchups will be fun & he is pretty good but let everybody know that I can shut ANY receiver down!!” Darius West had slightly less “smack” to his talk, but still said “I am!!” when I asked who would win. Jared Tucker had more smack talk, however, saying “Oh yeah it’s gonna be something to see! I’m not talking mess but I’m gonna win 9 times out of 10! I’m looking forward to it! These guys are not just gonna hand it to me so I’m gonna have to go out and work for it but I still plan to come out victorious!!”

As you can see, the recruits are hyped for Trey’s commitment, as they just got a stellar teammate for the 2014 season. With insane speed, quickness, and athleticism, with great hands, and coordination, UK got something special in TV Williams.
