"It was a great experience," Williams tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I feel like my game got better this week. It was great playing with all these great players. We came from all over and came together as one. You saw that in the second half when the defense got stops and the offense was moving the ball. It was a great week."
Led by Williams and Auburn commitments Stephen Roberts and Justin Thornton along with five-star and team MVP Rashaan Evans, Team Alabama's defense was all over the field in winning for the sixth consecutive time against Mississippi. While the goal was to win the game first and foremost, there was also an ulterior motive for Williams during the week.
Trying to convince Evans that Auburn is the place for him, Williams says it's hard to tell someone else something different than what they hear everyday. Because of that notes that he decided to let his play do the talking.
"I feel like it went really well," Williams says. "I picture it as I couldn't do much talking, I had to do more showing. I was telling him before ‘we're going to have a real defense' and things like that. He hasn't really seen that in person so I had to put it on myself to improve my game and show him what we can have in the future."
The duo will have another opportunity to play on the same team coming up at the Under Armour Game as Williams, Evans, Roberts, Racean Thomas, Kalvaraz Bessent and Sean White will all play for Team Highlight on Jan. 4 in St. Petersburg, Fla. With one more high school game to play before he turns his attention fully to his future at Auburn, Williams says he's ready to hit the field again because it's one more opportunity to improve his craft.
"I'm really excited," Williams says. "At first I thought about it being after the season, all I would be doing is working out and trying to prepare for Auburn. These games kind of keep me on track for what I need to do and what I need to improve. I'll still be in football shape when I get up there. I'm just excited and blessed to be able to play in these guys. I'm going to take full advantage and get after it."
