Speedy South Carolina Receiver Heading North
"My recruitment process was crazy," the 6'2, 190 lb. Williston-Elko (S.C.) standout told RedHawk Insider, "I met with almost thirty coaches this spring and summer." The first Division 1 coach to visit him, though, was Miami's recruiting coordinator Zak Willis. "When they offered me, it was amazing. I don't think I've ever been so happy in my life. All my hard work had paid off," said Williams. "Miami is just a great fit. The academics are great and I am just thankful for the opportunity," he added.
As a junior, Williams caught 36 passes for 805 yards, an average of over 22 yards per catch. Rokeem says he is more than just a fast receiver though, "I'm working on adding strength, becoming an even better route runner, and perfecting my inside moves this summer." RedHawk fans will likely celebrate Williams' intangibles too. "I really pride myself on my dedication and work ethic," he said. With consistent hard work, the tall receiver could receive playing time early in his Miami career alongside current sophomore Nick Harwell, a duo that would likely strike fear in the hearts of MAC defenses. "For now, I'm just focusing on getting better, but I'm excited to get to campus," he added.
Miami fans are anxious too, as the RedHawks have verbals from three talented skill players on offense - Williams, RB Jamire Westbrook, and QB Colin Reardon.
