Iowa Football: Stability of Coaching Staff Huge for DT Bryson Williams

Lincoln (Neb.) Southeast DT Bryson Williams recaps spring game visit to Iowa City.

The Iowa Football program had upwards of 20 recruits on campus for the Spring Game on Friday night and one was big defensive tackle, Bryson Williams, who has an offer.


The trip to Iowa City was Williams' third and he says that he never grows tired of visiting the Hawkeyes.

"The visit was great," Williams said. "I really like being in Iowa City and I learn a lot every time I get to talk to coach (Kirk) Ferentz," he added.

The Hawkeyes offered when Williams was on campus just three weeks ago visiting before he headed off to The Opening regional in Chicago, which he performed very well at. Iowa is the first Big Ten school to offer the talented defensive tackle. 

Williams - who obviously had his eye on the defensive line - came away really impressed with the Hawkeyes up front.

"Something that stood out for me was the defensive line," Williams said. "They looked improved and looked really good during the spring game," he added.

It appears the stability of the coaching staff in Iowa City is a really big key for Bryson. 

"The stability of the coaching staff is huge. I like the feeling I get when I'm around the coaches. The defensive lineman are about my size, which would make me a good fit for them," Williams admitted.

Williams claims offers from the Hawkeyes, Iowa State, Kansas State, Ohio, UCF, and others, but says the Hawkeyes are definitely one of his top schools at this point in the game. 

He got to talk to 2017 signee, Tristan Wirfs, a bit, but it was just casual talk with Williams asking him why he chose Iowa. Williams admits there wasn't much in terms of detail there.

Williams does plan on trimming his list a bit this summer and will be targeting a decision before he embarks on his senior football season. The Hawkeyes sound like they're definitely in play here.
