Fourth commitment for 2016 in the truck
College Park (Ga.) Woodward Academy cornerback Antone Williams committed to Duke on Monday afternoon, becoming the fourth player from the current crop of juniors to do so.
Williams chose the Blue Devils over Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Kentucky, Syracuse, Rutgers, and Wake Forest. All but Wisconsin had come forward with an offer and Ohio State was also heavily recruiting the 5-foot-11, 160 pound defensive back.
“When I called Coach [Derek] Jones to tell him I’d made my decision, he was excited and said it really made his week,” said Williams. “Duke had kind of been my favorite for a while, and I made my final decision on Sunday.”
As usual for Blue Devil commits, it wasn’t just about an improving brand of football when it came to the decision making process for Williams.
“They have a great atmosphere there…it’s a big family. And there are great academics with great football. It’s so well rounded.”
Williams is considered a three star prospect by Scout.com
