During the early 2000s, there was no more dominant wide receiver in the Washington program than Reggie Williams. A playmaker in every sense of the word, Williams was one of the best wide receivers in all of college football during his time with the Huskies, leaving as the most prolific wideout in school history.
Born in West Germany, Williams ended up playing his high school ball at Washington Lakes High School. A member of the Huskies program from 2001 to 2003, the speedy Williams would end up playing so well that he would become one of 23 players in program history to be named a consensus All-American.
Williams’ All-American season came in 2002, as the former USA Today All-American in high school definitely lived up to his billing as a prize recruit. He was the Washington State Player of the Year in high school, and was even better at the collegiate level. He is still widely regarded as the best wide receiver in program history.
Williams was named a First-Team All-Pac 10 player twice and was named the co-MVP of the 2003 team. He would end up being selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, the ninth overall selection by the team.
Unfortunately, Williams would flame out in the NFL, as he had to deal with off the field issues. Still, he is the school’s all-time leader in receptions (243) and receiving yards (3,598). In his college career, he went over the 100-yard mark an astonishing 16 times.
