Ke'Shawn Williams has signed with Wake Forest, adding some more wide receiver depth. The 5'10, 170 pound 3 star prospect had a heck of a senior season, with 58 catches for almost 900 yards and 18 touchdowns, plus 23 rushes and 5 touchdowns on the ground. Williams chose Wake Forest over Kent State, Temple, UMass, Fordham, and Monmouth.
The versatile prospect demonstrates many skills in highlights, but one in particular that excites me is his seeming propensity for making over shoulder grabs on the run as it gets dropped in deep, because that type of throw is something that Jamie Newman is extremely good at. Either way, Wake has been recruiting a lot of extremely good wideouts lately, so I'm excited to see what Ke'Shawn can produce.

So if you’re thinking to yourself, “when has a Kent State flip ever worked out for Wake Forest?”
Well I have an answer for you:
