Clemson junior wide receiver Mike Williams has officially made his decision to leave Clemson early and enter the NFL draft according to his Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon.
"First, I would like to start off by thanking Coach Swinney and the rest of the coaching staff for giving me an opportunity to play at Clemson University," Williams tweeted. "I have accomplished so much here throughout these years. We brought this city a National Championship and we will be remembered forever. Thank you to my family and friends for their constant support and encouragement. I also want to thank the fans for all of their support during my time here. Playing for Clemson was an incredible experience. I am grateful for the opportunity and for everyone who has been a part of my journey. As I close this chapter, I am excited and looking forward to starting the next chapter in my life." #2017NFLDRAFT
Good luck to Williams as he gets to live out his childhood dreams of being an NFL player. Most NFL Draft projections have him being the first wide receiver off the board in the first round. However, he will be able to back up those lofty expectations with an impressive showing at the NFL combine.
Williams had 8 catches for 94 yards and a touchdown in Clemson's first national title victory since 1981. In 2016, he had 98 receptions for 1361 and 11 touchdowns. He had 177 catches for 2727 yards and 21 touchdowns (and his degree) during his impressive collegiate career at Clemson.
