No surprise here: Freshman wideout Johnny Williams earned ACC Rookie of the Week honors Monday for his gaudy performance in Saturday’s 24-20 Duke loss to Northwestern. Filling in for hobbling star receiver Eron Riley, Williams, a true freshman, grabbed 11 receptions for 135 yards.
It was the second-best performance for a Duke wideout of all-time and the best since 1988.
Williams now leads Duke in receptions and yards and ranks second in the league in receptions per game.
