    He hasn't yet shown that knack for getting open or making clutch plays.

    His touchdown catch last night was pretty impressive.

    I would call hauling in a 22 yard TD on 3rd and 16, down 7-3, on the road, to be pretty clutch. That play was HUGE. So often in the past, that's a draw play and field goal. Rather than settling for the field goal, we take the lead and set the tone for the rest of the game. It was a good throw by AA and a great catch by Jake.

    I would call it one good play. Clutch would be doing it week in and week out.

    To me, clutch means making a big play when you NEED a big play. We needed that play in a big way, and Williams (and AA) delivered.

    I'm not saying Williams is a game in, game out clutch players. He hasn't played enough games to ascertain that. However, he made a very clutch play. One that if he doesn't make it, the game might have taken a different turn.

    Flynn was a great athlete and a precise route runner. Jake has quite a bit to work on before he's on Flynn's level.

    Comparing him to Austin is one thing. Saying that he's equal to Austin, on the basis of one or two catches, is ludicrous overstatement.

    Flynn was a 4-star recruit, that played early in his career and his whole career. Jake is a walk-on 5th year senior just now getting his first td.

    When I say he is "equal" to Flynn, I mean he is finding that niche as a dependable guy that runs good routes and catches the ball when it is thrown to him to move the chains.

    I don't know that I've seen him drop a pass yet. Of course he's only caught 4-5 balls, but that's saying alot right now.

    We have a multitude of receivers who could be the clutch saving grace of the team from week to week. I just hope arnaud puts it all together and digests this offense. It's a lot to learn. And 3rd Offense he's learned at ISU. He just needs to just learn to look off defenders instead of staring down receivers.

    He is only a RSJr. according to Cyclones.com. He has been solid through the first few games it will be nice to have him around for another year if he continues to progress.

    He has gone from "who did they say caught that pass" to the "walk-on that is making more catches than our 'stars'".
    Is he Austin Flynn? No.
    Has a begun making a bit of a name for himself? Yes.
