Camron Williams signed his LOI with TCU today, making official the verbal commitment he announced on 1/24/16. Cameron comes to us fro Dallas Skyline High School and he is 6'3", 210 lbs according to 247 Sports. While 247 Sports only has him listed as a three-star recruit he was awarded a four-star rating by, who also listed his '40 time at 4.55. With those measurables he has the potential to help out on the field at a number of different positions. Primarily a wide receiver in high school, he also spent some time at defensive end, so he has some experience playing both sides of the ball.

Williams held offers from OU, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, USC and Wisconsin among a few other power five programs. The Dallas Skyline prospect didn't play his senior year, but he showed some great ability his junior year at Dallas First Baptist Academy. With imposing size, he just bullies his way past defenders, especially defensive backs. Check out some of his highlights from that junior year in the hudl video down at the bottom of this article.

As far as receivers go, Williams brings to mind memories of former frog Ja'Juan Story. He is a big guy who can make physical catches and use his body to block defenders from the ball. He also shows a great ability to create yards after the catch and get those hard fought yards when he needs to. The more exciting comparison to make though is to former TCU and current NFL linebacker Paul Dawson. Before Dawson joined the Horned Frogs, moved to the defensive side of the ball and earned his way to consensus All-American honors at linebacker, he played wide receiver for none other than Dallas Skyline.

We all know that Coach Patterson has a knack for taking talented offensive athletes and turning them into monsters on the defensive side of the ball. In addition to linebacker, Williams could also make a pretty scary defensive end if he put on a few more lbs. Maybe he proves himself so useful at receiver that Meacham and Cumbie convince GP that he is more useful to the team with the ball in his hands. Whichever side of the ball he ends up on, he is a talented athlete and we're all excited to have him in the fold.
