Top Syracuse wide receiver Mike Williams has quit the football team, according to sources.

Nobody knows why just yet, but this is a shock to say the least.  Williams was suspended for the 10/24 game against Akron but returned last week. For the year, Williams was enjoying a nice season, with 49 receptions for 746 yards and six touchdowns.   This is a big loss to any Williams owner.

Syracuse wide receiver Mike Williams will play this week against Cincinnati.  Williams missed last week's game for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Syracuse wide receiver Mike Williams, in the midst of a very nice season, says he plans on returning for his final year of eligibility in 2010.

Great to hear when a player decides to remain on campus, though we'll temper our excitement until the draft entry deadline passes. Williams already has 41 catches for 623 yards and five scores in 2009.

According to Donnie Webb of The Post Standard, Syracuse wide receiver Mike Williams dropped a handful of catches in a recent practice and looks a little "shaky" over the middle.

It's natural to assume that Williams, who missed the 2008 campaign while dealing with an academic issue, is just getting back into game shape and it will take awhile. Head coach Doug Marrone has another theory, telling Webb that Williams and others are struggling to catch the fastballs delivered by expected starting quarterback Ryan Nassib. Despite these struggles we expect Williams to lead this young squad's passing attack.

Syracuse wide receiver Mike Williams has yet to enroll in spring classes. Williams' status for the spring semester remains unclear, but many believe he will be back. Williams, if you recall, was suspended from school last fall for academic reasons.

Williams had 60 catches for 837 yards and 10 scores in 2007, and it would be a big boost to new head coach Doug Marrone if he does return.
