Williams HighlightsClick Here to view this Link.
RANK: No. 202
SCHOOLS: Committed to Georgia Tech
WHY HE'S IN THE 250: This kid simply does not take plays off, and he never loses his cool under pressure. Williams runs sideline to sideline and is an ideal pass rusher. He wreaked havoc on two of the most athletic teams in the state of Georgia - Lithonia Martin Luther King and Stone Mountain Stephenson - this year. - B.E.
