Williams Firm With Commitment, Plans Visit

Pompano Beach (Fla.) safety Kevin Williams announced his commitment to West Virginia in February. His pledge, however, hasn’t kept other programs from trying to become involved in his recruitment.

Kevin Williams was so elated to receive an offer from West Virginia in February, he opted to commit to the Mountaineers just one day later.

Now, six months has elapsed and the Florida safety couldn’t be happier with his decision.

“Everything is standing strong with West Virginia," Williams said. “I mean I have a few schools here and there trying to talk with me. But my commitment is still strong. It’s pretty strong.”

With his commitment made, the 6-foot-1, 185 pound defender, remains in firm contact with the Mountaineer coaching staff. The cordial contact between the two is solid, allowing him to focus on other areas within their relationship.

“You know, me and all the coaches talk all the time,” Williams explained. “Me and Coach [JaJuan] Seider talk and our conversations are just catching up. We talk about daily things about school and some football.”

One benefit to his commitment is the status of additional future Mountaineers from the Sunshine State. Regardless of their individual backgrounds, a common bond is almost immediately reached with their decisions to become future family.

“I am familiar with several of the guys,” Williams said. “Sometimes we meet and become friends because we’re from the same school. “Guys like Jovon Durante and Khalil Lewis I’ve got good relationships with them. So it’s nice.”

Williams does intend to take all five of his allotted official visits during the fall. He lists Indiana, Rutgers and Syracuse as likely destinations. He’s tentatively scheduled to visit West Virginia on September 20 when the Mountaineers welcome Oklahoma to Morgantown.
