Mickey Plyler on Williams: I remember his dad from his FSU days. Garrett is another tough kid. He is versatile in that he can play as an on the line tight end but he is athletic enough to get involved in the passing game too. Clemson has a great tight end tradition now and athletically Williams takes a backseat to no one.

Reminds Plyler of: Michael Palmer
