Tennessee Football Offers Top-Ranked California Cornerback

    by -

    Head coach Josh Heupel and the Tennessee Volunteers continue to make early moves towards the class of 2023. Earlier this week, Heupel and the Vols offered a scholarship to California cornerback Aaron Williams.

    Williams, a consensus four-star prospect from 247 Sports, Rivals, and ESPN is currently ranked just outside of the Top 10 players in the state of California. 247 Sports composite rankings have Williams as the eleventh best player from the state of California and the seventeenth overall cornerback in the 2023 class. However, Williams is listed as the top-ranked cornerback from the state.

    “Blessed to have receive an Offer from the University of Tennessee!!!!!” Williams posted to Twitter with an orange emoji.

    As early in the process as Williams still is, the young four-star recruit has already garnered significant attention from all over the country. Williams has 25 total scholarship offers, including from SEC schools such as Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, and Arkansas.

    Williams, who stands at 6-foot-2 and weighs in at 185-pounds, plays for Centennial High School in Corona, CA. As popular as the young prospect has been though, Williams has yet to take any official visits.

    Currently, Tennessee has two commits in their 2023 class. The first was lightning quick safety Jack Luttrell from Hebron Christian Academy in Georgia who committed on July 31. Then, on Dec. 12, Tennessee received their second commitment of the class from elite four-star tight end Ethan Davis from Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, GA.
