Terrance Williams is an AFCA All-American!

Baylor has the nation's leading receiver and the rest of the college football world is beginning to take notice, starting with his inclusion as a Biletnikoff Finalist and continuing today.

Even with this season, I think this catch will be what Williams is remembered for at Baylor.

On the strength of his outstanding season catching passes from Nick Florence, Terrance Williams (Terrence Williams) has been named an All-American by the American Football Coaches Association. According to Baylor:

Williams is Baylor's first AFCA All-American since punter Daniel Sepulveda was honored in 2006, and he joins Gerald McNeil (1983) as the only wide receivers in program history to be named AFCA All-Americans.

I didn't realize that Williams is now the Baylor career leader in all-purpose yards with 4,554 in his four years, and with two more games to play this season, he's back on pace for a 2,000 receiving year. If he were to achieve that milestone, he'd be only the second receiver in NCAA history to do so. His season totals:

Receiving Kickoff Returns Punt Returns
G Rec Yds Y/G AVG TD KR YDS AVG Lng TD PR Yds Avg Lng TD
11 89 1693 153.9 19.0 12 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

Maybe I'm just biased because I absolutely love TWill, but if he could reach the 2,000 yard receiving plateau and end with something like 15 TDs, he would deserve at least some Heisman consideration, right? I know the Trophy is voted on and awarded prior to the bowl games, so a portion of that performance would not yet have occurred, but it seems strange to imagine that a player with those kind of numbers could be left out entirely.

No matter what, it's been a remarkable season for Terrance and I couldn't be happier that he's getting the recognition he deserves!
