Adding Preston Williams Could Make Vols' Offense Unstoppable
With such a promising young core of talent heading into Knoxville, there's a reason why head coach Butch Jones is optimistic about this team once again contending for an SEC championship.
One particular reason why Jones is seeing a bright future is because of a player that isn't even on campus yet.
More specifically, a player that won't even be there until next year.
Five-star wide receiver Preston Williams pledged his allegiance to the Vols by verbally committing to the school back in September. With a 6-foot-5 frame and incredible ball skills and agility, Williams is primed to be a big-time playmaker at the college level.
Of course, there's still a long way to go before that happens. Since he hasn't officially signed on the dotted line yet, there's certainly a chance that he could flip to another school that interests him -- Georgia, Auburn, and Florida the leaders in that group -- and take his talents elsewhere.
But right now, Vol fans can imagine all the possibilities on offense with Williams added into the mix.
Tennessee already has several potential breakout stars on offense this season, and two of those players are freshman.
Jalen Hurd and Josh Malone -- both in-state products -- have the potential put up outstanding numbers in their first year in Knoxville. Hurd should be able to give the Vols a consistent rushing attack on the ground while Malone will be a huge target in the passing game.
If those two players can meet the high expectations early on, the sky will be the limit for this offense. Not only in 2014, but in 2015 as well.
Williams and Malone could be quite the dynamic duo on outside for whoever settles into the quarterback role. There's a good chance that will be current sophomore Joshua Dobbs as he's made significant improvement since the end of last season.
Again, there's no reason for Tennessee fans to start declaring next year's offense as the greatest ever just yet. A whole lot of things can happen between now and then.
But, should Williams stay committed to Jones and company, the Vols could boast one of the best offensive attacks in the league come next season.
