With 2020 recruiting coming to a close the buzz around the 2021 cycle is just starting to heat up, and initial news is good for Oklahoma as a top quarterback is projected to land in Norman.
Williams picked up some steam from those who follow recruiting for the Sooners after 247 Sports national recruiting analyst Steve Wiltfong predicted the 5-star prospect to choose Oklahoma.
“While I’m riding with the Sooners right now, I could easily flip back to LSU depending on who the Tigers hire to replace offensive whiz Joe Brady. They were the clear team to beat following a visit to Baton Rouge in the fall. Brady taking a job with the Carolina Panthers changed the dynamic and opened the door for Oklahoma with Lincoln Riley keeping in nearly daily contact. They’ll return to Norman in March. Clemson, Oregon and Penn State are also still in the thick of this recruitment. A recent visit to see Dabo Swinney and company moved the needle.”Steve Wiltfong – 247Sports
Clearly there’s still a ton of time between now and the start of the early signing period on December 16th, there’s enough smoke to this fire that Oklahoma fans should familiarize themselves with Williams.
Listed at 6-2/209 from Gonzaga College High School, in Washington, D.C., Williams has earned 22 scholarship offers through his first three years of high school ball. Possessing 4.5 speed in the forty, Williams can also throw the ball 70 yards, hit the out, and put touch on intermediate passes.
247Sports has him as the top-rated dual threat quarterback prospect for 2021 and the nation’s 17th overall prospect as well as the top overall prospect from D.C..
As Wiltfong stated, the departure of Joe Brady from LSU opened the door for the Sooners. Brady was the lead recruiter for Williams and pending the announcement of a new offensive coordinator in Baton Rouge, you have to think Clemson and Oklahoma are going to get a lot of his attention and that can’t be anything but good for Lincoln Riley.
