AFTERNOON UPDATE: WR Cruz Williams will redshirt at NSU

Cruz Williams turned in the most notable performance during Northeastern State's spring game in April. The 6-foot-4 wide receiver caught nine passes for nearly 150 yards in his debut in green and white.

However, another spectacle like that from Williams will have to wait an extra 365 days.

The Little Rock, Ark., native was not granted a waiver by the NCAA and will have to redshirt in 2012.

"We were hoping the NCAA rules would allow him to play this fall, but we knew there was a chance he might have to sit," Northeastern State head coach Kenny Evans said of Williams, who transferred from Louisiana Tech. "Basically, that was the word we finally got. He's not going to lose any years of eligibility; it'll just be basically a redshirt year for him."

Williams was already slotted in as one of two starting wide receivers on a preliminary depth chart released by the RiverHawks at the beginning of fall practice. Now, Montra Nelson will likely move up into Williams' starting role.
