Williams is the teammate of 4-star athlete DeAngelo Gibbs at Grayson High School. Both he and Gibbs have been heavily recruited by teams all over the country. And while it’s still not impossible, Gibbs is definitely the more likely of the two to end up at UT. Williams holds offers from an astounding 49 schools with Georgia as the current favorite. If Tennessee can get Gibbs to commit, he might try to help recruit Williams to the Vols as well. Otherwise it could be a long shot for Butch and company.

 How He Fits

There is a reason Williams holds scholarship offers to over a third of all FBS schools. His speed, quickness, and ability to attack the ball or the ball carrier are on par with anyone else in his class. He is a threat with the ball in his hands and could be something of a mixture between Pig Howard and Cam Sutton. He would likely come to Tennessee as a cornerback but would definitely get some looks at receiver and maybe even kick returns.
