Williams gives Georgia visit a "10"

2017 prospect Jamyest Williams is one of the top athletes in the country, and talks about his latest visit to Georgia.

Archer defensive back Jamyest Williams is one of the top athletes in the entire country, and has been offered by almost every major program in the country.  The 5-foot-9 180-pound athlete really enjoyed his latest visit to Athens.

"I would rate my visit a 10."  Williams said.  "This was my first trip this year but I have been a number of times."

Williams was one of the top performers during DawgNight in Athens last July, and was back in Athens for the South Carolina game in September.

"This was my second visit since head coach Kirby Smart has been there.  Me and my dad talked to Kirby for 45 minutes and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker for about 2 hours.  Coach Mel (Tucker) was with me and my dad the whole visit along with my boy Mecole (Hardman).  He hung with us the whole time."

Williams said he got to know the coaches very well, and had a great conversation with Smart.

"He (Smart) just let me know that I'm a high priority and he knows I had been hearing rumors that UGA didn't want me because of my size but he quickly denounced that by saying that nothing at UGA as far as player personnel decisions are not made without his approval and that regardless of size I'm a must have prospect at the University of Georgia."

Williams is a wanted man across the country because of his versatility and speed.  At Archer he played defensive back, wide reciever, running back, as well as returning kicks on special teams.  Most schools are recruiting him at defensive back, but Williams could be a dangerous weapon on the offensive side of the ball as well.  

Williams also had some interesting things to say about his long talk with defensive coordinator Mel Tucker.

"Coach Tucker kept me and my dad hostage for about 2 hours just talking life and football.  He said regardless of size he thinks I'm a top 15 player in the nation and that it's going to take players like myself and a few others that will turn this program around from winning 10 games a year to winning the national championship each year.  He (Tucker) thinks I could be a first-round draft pick one day and that he would love to develop my game into such player."

Williams is ranked the 63rd best player in the country by scout.com.
