Noah Jordan-Williams

School: Syracuse (N.Y.) Christian Brothers Academy
Recruiting Situation: Holds Syracuse Offer, interest from Buffalo, Boston College and Villanova
Opponent: Henninger (9/5) and Cicero-North Syracuse (8/30)

What to Like

Jordan-Williams is a natural athlete who is young and still learning the position at the varsity level. He gets off the line quickly and is able to accelerate to full speed after only a few steps.

In and out of his breaks, the sophomore wide receiver cuts well without losing speed. He runs solid routes and catches almost everything thrown his way when he does not have to leave the ground. He is a natural athlete who is smooth when cutting in his routes or with the ball.

Athletically, Jordan-Williams already looks like he belongs despite only being a sophomore. He is shifty with the ball in his hands in the open field and can make a few plays after the catch.

Maybe the most impressive thing in the early stages of his high school career is Jordan-Williams’ willingness to block. CBA runs the ball quite a bit and Jordan-Williams is a big part of that blocking on the outside. He is physical, shows solid blocking technique, and plays through the whistle.

What Needs Work

Jordan-Williams is still developing physically and has to add some bulk to his frame. He has plenty of time to do so, but it is a detriment right now. As he adds size and strength, he will be better able to handle bump coverage and use his body for position down the field.

While Jordan-Williams has great speed for high school football in Central New York, he does not have elite speed for the collegiate level. His speed is above average, but could still use some improvement on his top-end speed.

Lastly, Jordan-Williams has to work on being strong with the ball when making catches up in the air with contact. He had one drop in that scenario on Friday night and he probably should have made the play.

Final Thought

I really like Jordan-Williams as a prospect and it’s easy to see why Syracuse has offered early. With plenty of time to grow physically and develop as a player, he could be a highly touted northeast prospect when it is all said and done. He could be an emerging star in Central New York.
