It seems former Tennessee wide receiver Preston Williams is out of Colorado State head coach Mike Bobo‘s doghouse. Preston Williams was back on the field as camp opened for the Rams, with Bobo informing the media his suspension had come to a close.
Earlier in the week, at Mountain West Conference media days, Williams was still serving a suspension for the team. Williams was initially suspended by Bobo in September 2017 due to an off-field misdemeanor assault charge. Williams plead guilty to the charge and was under suspension until proving to Bobo and the Rams staff he was worthy of being a participant in the program once again.
Apparently, it wasn’t just the coaches that were happy to see Williams redeem himself. He also seemed to have the support of his teammates.
“I’m very impressed,” wideout Bisi Johnson said, according to a report from Reporter-Herald. “I mean, he turned his whole life around. It was a little sketchy there at first, but he’s definitely figured it out, and we needed him. It’s good to have him on the team.”
Williams transferred from Tennessee to Colorado State in November 2016 and was forced by NCAA rule to sit out the entire 2017 season. Williams has played in 15 games and has recorded 247 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns from his time in two seasons with Tennessee. He has two years of eligibility at his disposal beginning with the 2018 season.
