Four-star receiver fails to qualify, won't enroll at Syracuse

Written By The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Wide receiver K.J. Williams and defensive back Treevon Prater have failed to qualify academically and will not enroll at Syracuse in the fall, according to head coach Scott Shafer.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Williams, who played at Liberty High School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, last year, was considered one of the Orange's top recruits. He received a four-star rating by Rivals, Scout, and 247 Sports.

Prater, a 6-foot, 178-pound defensive back from East St. Louis (Illinois) High School, was a three-star athlete there but was listed by recruiting sites as an athlete because he had played very little organized football.

Shafer said both players were deciding whether to go to junior college or prep school.
