”I picked Ball State because I wanted to be a part of not only a football team, but a family,” Williams said. “I felt Ball State was the best for me.”
Versatility has been a key word so far in this recruiting class for the Cardinals and Williams will continue that trend. At 6-5 270, Williams is big enough to play inside and fast and athletic enough to play end.
”I bring a lot of energy and toughness,” Williams said of his strengths. “I will do anything possible to get the job done.”
Despite being under the radar to fans, Williams quietly added several impressive offers as he chose the Cardinals over offers from Miami, Northern Illinois, Toledo, Western Kentucky, Eastern Michigan and North Dakota, as well as interest from Indiana.
With his decision out of the way, Williams can now focus fully his senior year. Southport boasts plenty of talent returning including fellow division one level players in DB Eli Walton, OT Alec Brumfield and QB Luke Johnston . Williams made it clear there is only one goal in mind for him and his teammates for their senior season.
”Win a state championship.”
