2016 CB Andraez Williams, nicknamed "Greedy," landed an offer from the Tigers earlier this week after a standout performance at camp. Williams was one of the top defensive backs in attendance through the three-day camp, and him landing an offer was a no-brainer for the Tigers.
But Williams admits he wasn't expecting it.
"It was a big surprise," Williams said. "I really couldn't even believe they offered me…I though I did really well, and the coaches said they're giving me a full scholarship. They also want me to come back down for their July camp, and they like my quickness, speed, basically everything."
That offer was a big one for Williams, as it was only his second at the time. Wake Forest was his first, and Texas A&M has since joined the mix to bring Williams' list to three.
Williams is exactly what the Tigers look for in a cornerback. He has great length at 6-foot-2, 175 pounds. He recorded a 38.5-inch vertical at LSU's camp, but didn't run a 40-yard dash because of a tweaked groin. He also debuted in the first Scout 300 of 2016 as the nation's No. 144 overall prospect, the 11th best corner.
He also has some quality bloodlines. Current LSU CB Tre'Davious White is his cousin.
"We're real tight," Williams said. "When I got the offer, he told me congratulations and stuff like that. It'd be great to follow in his footsteps. He's taught me a lot about LSU. It's great that he's down there."
White would have to stick around for his senior season to ever team up with his younger cousin at LSU. Though there's a long way to go before Williams ultimately signs with his future college, there are some real signs pointing toward LSU being that destination.
"I was thinking about [committing Monday night] to be honest," Williams said. "I was real close, but by next week I should have my mind made up about what I'm going to do."
Whether that means he pledges to the Tigers or decides to extend the process, LSU has to like the direction its heading for the Class of 2016.
