Still Available: CB Tyler Williams

Hutchinson CB Tyler Williams (6-2, 195) is a big corner who started ever game for one of the top JUCO programs in the country this past season. Now, the talented and versatile defensive back prospect is still looking for a place to call home this fall and he's got some interest from a handful of schools, but so far, none have offered...



As a redshirt sophomore this past fall, Williams started every game at corner and finished with 41 tackles, two tackles-for-loss, one fumble recovery, two interceptions while leading the team with nine pass breakups.

"I started all 13 games at corner, but I also played some safety in 'single high' situation," Williams told JCFootball.com. "I love contact so I love to play press (coverage)."

As a prep at Norcross (Ga.) High School, Williams had hoped to sign with Georgia Tech, but settled on West Georgia and then didn't feel happy there.

"(West Georgia) just wasn't at the level I wanted to compete at," Williams said. "I felt like I could compete with any five-star on a D-1 roster so I took a chance with JUCO.

"I wanted a program that I could win and gain exposure at and I spoke with a high school teammate of mine, Ben Bradley who came through Hutch and he told me I could do both here, so I made the move."

On the recruiting front, while he's still waiting for his first offer, Williams has been talking to a handful of schools.

"I've been in contact with East Carolina and Central Michigan a lot lately.," Williams said. "Kentucky and Appalachian State have reached out to me as well.

"ECU and Central Michigan are talking about visits so hopefully those offers are coming soon."

Williams redshirted at Hutch in 2013 after spending the 2012 season at West Georgia, so he will have two years to play two starting in the fall.
