Oklahoma high school football: Tulsa Washington star Gentry Williams tears right ACL

Tulsa Washington's Gentry Williams is done for the season.

The standout junior wide receiver and defensive back tore his right anterior cruciate ligament in the Hornets' 15-13 win against Del City in Week 1 after catching a pass late in the first half, he told the Tulsa World on Friday. The injury will sideline one of the nation's top recruits in the 2022 class. He's scheduled to have surgery next week.

247Sports rates Williams as a five-star and No. 9 prospect in the country while Rivals has him as a four-star. He moved to wide receiver this year after spending time at quarterback his first two seasons. 

He's also a track star, where he won the 400-meter dash as a freshman. His speed has caught the attention of Team USA's track and field program. 

On the football field, he holds offers from Florida, LSU, Michigan, OU, Oklahoma State and Southern California, among many others.
