Former Syracuse wide receiver Mike Williams will give up his final year of eligibility and make himself available for the NFL draft, ESPN.com‘s Len Pasquarelli is reporting.
Williams suddenly and unexpectedly quit the Orange football team earlier this month. At the time, he was far and away Syracuse’s leading receiver and was also the leading receiver in the Big East when he walked away from the program.
Talent-wise, Williams would be one of the top receivers available in the draft. However, given how he quit on his team in the middle of the season -- and was suspended for a game earlier in the year for violating unspecified team rules -- it’s uncertain exactly how NFL teams will view the talented but enigmatic receiver.
