Projection: Wide receiver. Williams is a good high school athlete but lacking refinement in some areas. Basically, he looks like a good-sized, fairly fast player in a somewhat simple offense that runs him on a lot of fly routes, a few fades, and a few slants. He appears to be a physically mature player, which makes me wonder a little about how much room for development there is; the technical things can certainly improve, but he might be closer to his peak as an athlete than some other players. I think he can be a serviceable player at the BCS level with potential to be more if he can play with more physicality.
Reminds me of: LaTerryal Savoy
Likelihood of committing to Michigan: Williams visited Michigan a couple weekends ago and, according to reports, was close to committing.
