Williams attends Heritage High School in Georgia, and he is considered the No. 3 long snapper in the 2024 recruiting class, according to Kohl’s kicking.com.
The Georgia product chose Alabama over an opportunity to play for Memphis. The Crimson Tide’s special teams coordinator Coleman Hutzler informed Williams of his opportunity to play for Alabama last week.
“I had just come home from my high school team dinner, and I got a call from Coach Hutzler,” Williams told Touchdown Alabama. “The call was going great, and it seemed like a normal check-up call. Then, he says that he would love to offer me to come play for them. I was thrilled to hear that because I have been wanting this offer for a very long time. It truly was an amazing experience, and I thank coach Hutzler and the rest of the staff there for the opportunity.”
Williams has always admired the Alabama football program and its standards.
“In my opinion, Alabama is the program, and has been for decades,” Williams said. “The coaches and players that choose to be a part of the program understand there is a standard to uphold. There is no option B.”
Kohl’s Kicking has given Williams high praise in the past.
“Williams has finished top 5 in the country at every Kohl’s Snapping Camp he has attended. He recently competed at the Kohl’s National Scholarship Camp against the top snappers in the country and finished with the 3rd highest charting score in the 2024 class. Williams rips the ball with power, clean rotation, and precise placement. He has long levers and uses them effectively in his snapping motion. Williams is the type of snapper that will not only throw the same ball each time but also has the speed to cover downfield. He has the ability and talent to play for any team in the country.”
Finished up the regular season. Excited for round one of playoffs. Here are some highlights from the last two weeks.
