The Oregon Ducks pulled of a recruiting coup when three star wide receiver Jaison Williams (6-4, 220, 4.5) from Culver City, Calif., said yes to a Duck offer after he returned home from his visit to the Eugene campus. The prevailing wisdom was that it was going to be a Michigan/USC battle. The Ducks get a nice pick-up with Williams.
Not only does Williams bring the big wide receiver that is so in vogue these days to the table for the Ducks, but he has been a stalwart defensive player in 2003 as well.
Williams is playing on both sides of the ball as a wide receiver/linebacker and he has been so impressive as an outside linebacker that he could easily play defense if wide receiver or tight end if wide receiver doesn’t work out.
“On defense, Jaison has played beyond our expectations,” Culver City quarterback coach Greg Goodyear in an earlier interview with Rivals.com. “Williams has been a man child out there. He is just stuffing plays.”
Williams was recruited as and will see his first action as a wide receiver for the Ducks.
Besides USC and Michigan Williams had offers from Arizona State, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Nebraska, Colorado, Colorado State, Virginia and West Virginia.
Rivals.com has ranked Williams as the nation’s number 39 wide receiver prospect, he also a member of Rivals.com’s California top 100 team and is ranked as the Golden State’s number 43 prospect and Rivals.com has also honored Williams at the number 57 prospect at any position for its Super West 60 team.
