Although Juwaan Williams of Tucker (Ga.) was a starting wide receiver in 2010, he finished with only four receptions.
"I wasn't the primary receiver," Williams said. "[Georgia signee] Chris Sanders was. When you have him next to you, you don't get many balls thrown to you."

This season, Williams, now a junior, is the centerpiece of the Tucker offense. That's because he's playing quarterback.
"My coach asked me before the season what I wanted to do, and I said I wanted the ball in my hands," Williams said. "Last year, I played receiver and defensive back. This year, I'm playing a little defense, too, but only in necessary situations."
Quarterback is not where Williams' future is. The colleges recruiting him - and there are several - like him at either cornerback or receiver.
"I'd like to play receiver," Williams said.
In Williams' limited opportunities last season, he averaged more than 50 yards per reception, he said.
Thus far, East Carolina, North Carolina State, UCF and Wake Forest have offered the 6-feet-1, 180-pounder. Additionally, Williams is hearing from Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Kentucky, he said. This Saturday, he will attend Georgia Tech's home game with North Carolina.
"Wake offered [Wednesday]," Williams said. "I didn't even know they were recruiting me. I would say ECU is recruiting me the hardest. They're really pushing for me to come to the school."
