Vacaville, Calif., high school has two prospects that have D-I recruiters heading to the northern California hamlet this May. They are Thomas Williams and Kyle DeVan.
Williams is a stellar linebacker prospect who stands 6-foot-3, weighs 225 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.61. He has an outstanding bench of 345 pounds.
This versatile athlete racked up 85 tackles, eight sacks and three picks as a junior. He also played fullback and ended up rushing for 378 yards while scoring four touchdowns. Williams is also a solid receiver and he had one receiving touchdown. Williams is such a great blocker that he asked the Vacaville head coach Fred Jones if he could play tight end his senior season. “Thomas is just to valuable,” Jones said. “We are going to let him run the football, be a lead blocker as well as catch the ball. We will not let Thomas be limited by playing tight end. He will line up in the backfield on offense.” Williams will end up playing fullback and running back his senior season.
That being said, Williams will line up on the defensive side of the ball in college. He has great quickness to the ball and he’s very aggressive. Williams is also terrific in pass coverage as he was a strong safety as sophomore.
This all-league performer compares to former Vacaville standout and now Oregon Duck tight end Josh Rogers. Williams is getting heavy Pac10 recruiting action especially from Oregon, Cal, Stanford, USC and UCLA. Northwestern of the Big 10 is also showing a lot of interest…
DeVan has been a two-way starter on the offensive and defensive line since his sophomore year. He stands 6-foot-3, weighs 270 pounds, runs the 40-yard dash in 5.2 seconds and benches 350 pounds. This all-league performer is a remarkable athlete who us also a standout wrestler and was rated as #1 wrestler in weight class in the state.
One thing that really stands out about DeVan is his tremendous leadership skills and his overall character. Whatever he takes on, he succeeds.
On offense because of his quickness, DeVan is the quick side tackle. Overall DeVan has great technique and he is just as good a drive blocker as he is in pass protection.
DeVan is hearing from many schools but Cal, Stanford and Oregon are showing the most attention…
