Spoto ATH Terence Williams picking up recruiting steam

Terence Williams, projected to be Spoto's quarterback in the fall, has picked up his first offers, from North Carolina and North Carolina State.

Williams, who formerly played for two seasons as Terrence Verriett at Jefferson before transferring last spring to Spoto, was offered by the Wolfpack on Saturday and Tuesday morning by the Tar Heels.

Though the 2016 prospect was eligible to practice in the spring but ineligible to play in the spring jamboree, Spoto coach Dale Caparaso has already called Williams the best quarterback he's ever had at Spoto, and said his receiving skills -- he is being recruited as an athlete that can play wide reciever or defensive back -- rival those of past Spartan standouts Nick Addison, Geronimo Allison and Alex Byers, the coach said.

"He has as good hands as anyone who's ever come through here,'' Caparaso said of the 6-foot-1, 187-pound junior. "He is phenomenal. He has just unbelievable hands. The unique thing about Terrence, and we would never do this because we don't have to, is we could move him to outside linebacker and he would be very good. He's an extremely aggressive, physical kid."

Caparaso said Williams has been timed at 4.47 in the 40, and while he will play quarterback in the fall, he will also see time at runing back and wide receiver. "Whatever we need to do to get the ball in his hands,'' Caparaso said.
