Why UW? “It just felt right. I don’t know how to explain it; it just felt like the place I needed to be and that I wanted to be.”
Other Suitors: Williams committed to the Huskies in late June over offers from Oregon, California, Arizona State, Utah, Northwestern and Kansas, among others.
Scouting Report: “Highly versatile athlete. As a quarterback in 2014, he threw for 580 yards in one game and as a defensive end he posted 14.5 sacks on the season. He also served as the long snapper. Being looked at by college coaches on the defensive side of the ball. Father Tyrone played defensive tackle in the NFL and was an all-star in the CFL.” (Brandon Huffman, Scout.com National Analyst)
Quotable: “I always try to model my game after my father. I like the way Ndamukong Suh plays. I like the way Bobby Wagner plays. Those are just two of the guys I really like.”
Projection: “There’s no doubt Williams should play along the defensive line of scrimmage, given his size and athleticism. Washington is projecting him out at BUCK, very much in the vein of a bigger Travis Feeney. But he could grow into a straight-up defensive end, or could even move to the SAM and play as the Cory Littleton athlete. His versatility demands a look at a number of positions.” (Chris Fetters, Dawgman.com)
