Birmingham (Ala.) Wenonah two-way lineman Quinnen Williams turned heads during his senior season debut on Friday night against Birmingham (Ala.) Huffman and took in the Saturday scrimmage at Alabama the next day.
“It was good, I really enjoyed it,” he said. “Nothing new, I was just enjoying the environment and enjoying being back down at ‘Bama today. ‘Bama is home to me so I always enjoy myself when I come down.”
The Crimson Tide commitment was surprised to receive attention for his Friday performance while Nick Saban and company took the next step in fall camp.
“Kirby Smart congratulated me for playing a good game (Friday) night and laughed with coach (Mario) Cristobal about me making the first three tackles of my high school football game,” Williams said. “I also talked with coach Bo Davis, they were great conversations like always.
“The scrimmage was really good, too. I saw good plays and patterns on both sides of the ball. The team did really well, they moved the ball and the defense made some stops, also. I’ll say the whole team balled out.”
Williams used his latest visit to further his relationship with likely future teammates, too.
“I spoke to some players and gave our, ‘what’s up.’ I’m cool with a lot of players on the team that I met this summer while camping,” he said.
Not expecting to take visits to other programs, one of Alabama’s top in-state commitments reiterated his plans and goals for the fall upon heading back to Birmingham.
“I’m looking forward to coming down for games and competing, doing what I have to do to help ‘Bama win championships,” Williams said.
