Mike Williams is ready to come to Clemson and impact the Tigers’ football team early and often.

Williams, the four-star wide receiver out of Santee (SC) Lake Marion, knows the Tigers are thin at wide receiver and he thinks that he can come in a provide a deep threat target for Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd.

“Absolutely. That’s my goal and that’s what I’m trying to do,” Williams told TigerNet recently. “I want to come in and have an early impact on this team. I want to fill in the holes that they have. I can catch the deep ball and when I go over the top, there is no defensive back that can stop me.”

Sammy Watkins will line up at the boundary receiver position, and Williams thinks that with him on the opposite side of the field, they will be a tandem that can’t be covered.

“That would be something good to have me on one side and Sammy [Watkins] lined up on the other side,” he said. “We are both two great receivers. With Tajh at quarterback, there is no team that can stop that because he throw the ball to either one of us and we are both a threat to score.”

The 6-4, 185-pound receiver is already imagining what it’s going to be like when he steps of the bus at the top of the Hill on August 31st.

“Right now, all I can do is just imagine it,” he said. “I know that when I get to the top of the Hill on August 31st, it’s going to be a great feeling. I’ve already been talking to a couple of the boys who have gotten to experience it and they’ve been telling me how it feels. It’s going to be amazing to rub the rock and run down the Hill for the first time against Georgia.”

’ up-tempo offense.

“I’ve just been doing a little bit of everything trying to get ready to come to Clemson,” he said. “I’ve been running and conditioning so that I can keep up and know that I will be in shape. I’m working on being able to keep my breath.”

Williams will enroll at Clemson for the second summer session, and his recruiter- defensive line coach Marion HobbyMarion Hobby

- told him to be prepared both mentally and physically.

“Coach Hobby came by my school to see me recently,” he said. “He told me to get ready because it was about to get fast. He thinks I can handle it, but he said it’s going to take a lot of hard work to keep up. He wants me to keep running conditioning, and lifting so my body is right when I get to school.”

Williams said that he has everything squared away with his academics and the NCAA.
