Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams suffered a scary neck injury in the season opener against Wofford last season and missed all of 2015 but according to Tigers coach Dabo Swinney, he would be “ready to roll” if the season started today.

A former four-star recruit, Williams has managed 79 catches for 1,366 yards and 10 touchdowns. Prior to his injury last season, he had a pair of catches for 20 yards and a touchdown.
And Clemson will be more than happy to have Williams back on the field in 2016. Though the Tigers did win the ACC last year and made the national championship game, ultimately losing to Alabama 45-40, key players in quarterback Deshaun Watson and running back Wayne Gallman are due back. Now that a top receiver in Williams is also set to return, Clemson’s odds of contending for a title once again are looking good.
Stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on Williams’ recovery!
