Tech receiver's future remains cloudy as he rehabs from another knee surgery

No final determination’s been made on Tech wide receiver Peyton Williams’ future, Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said, but whether he plays again remains cloudy because of knee injuries.

Williams underwent knee surgery as a high school senior in January 2012, signed with Colorado and then transferred to Tech in January 2013. He later suffered another knee injury. 

“He had another surgery on that knee,” Kingsbury said. “He’s still going to rehab it, and I think he’s thinking about not playing anymore. He’s just working through that. But he’s a ways out if he’s going to play again.”

Williams caught 92 passes for 1,196 yards and 10 touchdowns as a Southlake Carroll senior, but had that season cut short when he suffered a knee injury in a December 2011 state semifinal.

Kingsbury said he’s not sure which way Williams is leaning.

“I think he’s going to see how he comes back from it,” Kingsbury said, “but he’s had so many complications from that knee, we’ll just see how it works.

“He’s a great kid. I hope it works out.”
