FSU Showed Williams Something Against UM

Florida State really showed 4-star DB Jamyest Williams something against Miami.

Archer (Ga.) Lawrenceville 2017 4-star defensive back Jamyest Williams took another visit to Tallahassee this weekend, this time to see Florida State play Miami. Williams had been to Florida State for Junior Day and the July Jimbo Fisher Camp already this year.

Williams came away very impressed from the visit.

"The game was great," Williams said. "One of the best visits I've been on. FSU really showed a lot. The atmosphere was one of the best I've been in thus far."

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher and defensive coordinator Charles Kelly spent some time with the Top-100 defensive back.

"Coach Fisher and Kelly talked to me on how much that would like for me to be a Nole," Williams said. "They told me I could come in and play that star position right away, but also could play on the outside as well as special teams and maybe a little offense."

The Florida State coaches had some high praise for the junior defensive back by comparing him to two of the best to play at Florida State.

"Well, they see me as a Greg Reid or Lamarcus Joyner type player," Williams said.

Williams likes that comparison because of how they used those guys and how that fits the way he plays.

"In the past they have used players like that in numerous situations," Williams said. "How the defense plays, it fits my style of play."

Williams took the visit with two other 2017 4-stars, linebacker Jaden Hunter and defensive end Malik Herring. All three of the guys have said that they would like to play together at the next level.

"It would be great," Williams said. "Those guys are great competitors that never shy away from competition. And those are the type of players you want to surround yourself with in regards on winning a national championship at the next level."

During the summer Williams named Clemson his leader, but he's backed off that for now.

"I would say my Top-5 at the moment is scrambled with FSU AND a few others being somewhere near the top," Williams said.

The 5-foot-9.5, 180-pound defensive back was the only underclassmen to make the All-Opening team this summer. He is currently rated as the No. 9 athlete and No. 91 overall prospect in the 2017 Scout 300.

Williams doesn't have any set visits planned, but would like to visit Ohio State, Clemson, Tennessee, LSU, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma this season.
