Kasen Williams from Skyline HS in Sammamish, Wa announced tonight that he will attend the University of Washington next fall. He is the second five star player from in state this year to commit to Washington. As a junior in 2009, the 6'3 200 lb WR finished with 1,209 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.
Williams recently narrowed his list to a final five that included Florida, Notre Dame, California, Louisiana State and Washington. In a radio interview earlier this week, he said his list was down to two schools but would not reveal the names.
Williams is strong big receiver who is able to hang and make adjustments to the ball in the air. He is built like a linebacker so he has the strength to hold his own against DB's coming off the line. He doesn't have world class speed but he is deceptively fast and has excellent leaping ability.
Williams is going to be a real bruiser when he catches the ball. He has the ability to break tackles and carry people with him in the same manner as Chris Polk. Unlike Chris he will be doing that one on one in the secondary. We are talking about a kid who has big play potential.
