Hawaiian heading to the mainland

Offensive center prospect Tyler Williams (6-2, 280, 5.4) from Honolulu (Hawai'i) Kamehameha has made his decision on what college he will attend to continue his higher education and play his college football.
"Yes Tyler committed to Utah," Tyler's Mom said. "As soon as he arrived there he felt comfortable and at home."
"Tyler liked the facilities and he also liked the fact that there are some locals (Hawaiians) on the team that he knew," Mrs. Williams said. "They also have a Polynesian Club at the school."
"We also have a family member who lives in Salt Lake and if he needs he can go over there and eat local food that is unavailable in the city," Mrs. Williams said. "He felt connected."
"We told if he felt the electricity and that if it felt right Tyler would know," Mrs. Williams said. "He called us and told us that he's a Ute."
According to Mrs. Williams her son had received recruiting attention from UNLV, SDSU, Washington, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Hawai'i.
One of the things that make Williams an even more valuable prospect is the fact that he is a true center prospect. He is also an excellent long snapper and that will also help his recruitment.
In an earlier interview with Kamehameha coach Kanani Souza he has this to say about his talented offensive center.
"Tyler has tremendous strength," Souza said. "He won the strongest man competition at both the Wisconsin and Colorado camps."
"Tyler benched 225-pounds, 27 time at one of the two camps and 30 plus times at the other camp," Souza said. "He was also the state's power lifting champion as a junior."
