When many think of football prospects from the Hawaiian Islands they think of tough, gritty and strong linemen. One player who really fit that bill is offensive center prospect Tyler Williams (6-2, 280, 5.4) from Honolulu (Hawai’i) Kamehameha.
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.
Without question it is William’s brute strength that has opened D-I schools eyes.
“Tyler has tremendous strength,” Kamehameha coach Kanani Souza. “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.”
Strength isn’t the only thing that Williams has going for him. He also a solid drive blocker who finishes his blocks. He’s very aggressive and physical. Williams also has a little bit of nasty to him and that always helps an offensive lineman be successful.
Williams will be one of those players who could see his stock rise once his senior season rolls around later next month.
Besides Wisconsin and Colorado; Oregon State, Arizona State, Michigan State and BYU are also showing interest in Williams.
