New Clemson Offense Will Allow Tigers to ‘Sling Ball Around’

Antonio Williams Jason Priester All Clemson

With the arrival of Garrett Riley, the Clemson wideouts are openly optimistic about how the passing attack will evolve under the new offensive coordinator.

Halfway through spring practice, rising sophomore Antonio Williams insists there is a new edge with the Tigers on the offensive side of the ball.

“Bringing in a new offensive coordinator gave us a little juice and it’s just a spark with something new,” Williams said. “Just to learn what he did at TCU, that excites everybody. We’re ready to play.”

After leading the team in catches (56) and yards (604) as a freshman, Williams is looking to take that next step in his development, and he is confident Riley’s scheme will benefit not only him, but the entire group of wide receivers.

“I think my freshman year was just a start,” he said. “I’m looking to build off that, especially with this new Air Raid offense. We’re going to sling the ball around and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

One of the biggest things Williams likes about the new scheme is the simplicity. It’s something that will allow the offense to play faster and Williams thinks that will lead to more success.

“We are going to pass the ball for sure, but at the same time we’re going to run,” Williams said. “We got Will Shipley and Phil Mafah back there so we got to them the ball. I think it’s going to be faster. We got a lot of up-tempo pace going. We’re signaling faster. We are just going to be moving the ball really fast.”
