Kentucky's offense has been missing a few pieces this spring.
Some key receivers like Ryan Timmons and Dorian Baker have been sidelined by off-season surgeries.
It's made for some interesting lineups and meant other players have had to take on new roles.
The Cats have found a more than willing stand-in in T.V. Williams.
Never miss a local story.
X, Y, Z, H? Doesn't matter what wide receiver position coaches have asked him to play, Williams has been happy to assume whatever spot in the alphabet his coaches assign.
"I've played a lot of different positions," Williams said. "I've played X, Y and Z and even running back. When the running backs were dinged up a couple of practices ago, I played some running back and ran some sweep routes. Whatever I can to help my team."
Wide receivers coach Tommy Mainord laughed a little when asked about the 5-foot-10, 153-pound wide receiver turned running back.
"Don't let him get started on that," Mainord said. "He's talking nonsense there. He's played all four wide receiver positions and done well at all four. He has made some moves this spring."
That was the goal for the McKinney, Texas, native who was frustrated that much of his movement last season was pacing from side to side on the Kentucky sideline.
Williams played in just five games last season and had four catches and 64 yards in all.
It was not how he imagined his freshman season would go.
"I wasn't necessarily happy with how I played last year or the amount I played last year, but that goes on me and what I did in practice and what I didn't do in games," said Williams, who has gained 12 pounds of muscle in the offseason.
Williams is one of only five wide outs who caught a pass in a game last season that is available this spring. So he's trying to take full advantage of the opportunity to move around and catch the eye of his coaches.
Every position they ask him to play, he works to give them a reason to let him play there more.
"I'm trying everything," he said. "I'm not counting anything out. It's just been a lot of fun being able to play a lot of positions."
Mostly the thing Williams is showing his coaches this spring is that he understands the offense and is able to be one of many moving parts of it.
"Really been impressed with him the past week or so," said head coach Mark Stoops, who mentioned Williams among a handful of players that also may return punts. "He's starting to really step up and make some plays, and it's been a pleasant surprise for him to go outside and be able to make some plays.
"As you know he's a little bit on the short side to play outside, but he has the ability to get off some press because he's so shifty, and he's made some good plays. He's stepping up."
Williams has become more accustomed to the pace of play and the consistency he has to bring on a daily basis, his wide receivers coach said.
"He's gotten a handle on the offense," Mainord said. "We've moved him around some and he's handled it fine. He's had a good spring so far."
All of the offensive players were hurting when offensive coordinator Neal Brown left to become the head coach at Troy, but Williams said the UK offensive players immediately perked up when they started looking up info on new offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson.
A list of some of the best wide receivers at West Virginia, Dawson's last stop, rolled off Williams' tongue.
"He's coached people that are going places and have done really good things. His plan has worked. We're all just trying to buy in as much as possible."
Williams especially was interested in the numbers of Tavon Austin, who has a similar frame at 5-foot-8 and 176 plays. Under Dawson, Austin had 288 catches for 3,413 yards and 29 touchdowns in his career. Then he became a first-round NFL Draft pick by the St. Louis Rams.
Dawson's offense has been fun for the wide receivers, Williams said, especially for him.
"Loving the new plays," he said. "It really fits me; I'm loving it a lot.
"You have more leeway with how you run your routes. ... Coach Dawson, is like, 'As long as you guys get open and you make a play, I'm good.' I really like that."
