THE WILLIAMS FILE
- CLASS: 2016

- COMPOSITE RATING: * * * *
- COMPOSITE RANK: 7 (RB)
The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder from New London, NC (North Stanly) committed to North Carolina nearly two years ago before deciding to open up his recruitment. He then pledged to Wisconsin last fall. Recently, Williams indicated that the Buckeyes had been in contact with him, and it didn’t take long for things to really pick up as he decommitted from Wisconsin last Wednesday. The four-star was in Columbus this weekend for the Penn State game.
Williams has put together quite the offer sheet – including Alabama, Auburn, Notre Dame, Florida, and Georgia – but his recruitment has been mostly quiet since pledging to the Badgers in December of 2014. Tony Alford, who began recruiting Williams when he as an assistant coach at Notre Dame, has led the surge to add the North Carolina standout.
The Buckeyes extended an offer last November and were immediately included in his top six. After canceling an Auburn visit and opting for Madison instead, the commitment came shortly after the Badgers defeated Minnesota and secured their spot in the Big Ten Championship game; it would go public a few days later. Williams really garnered the affection of Badger fans when he unleashed this tweet shortly after the 59-0 dismantling in Indy.
The No. 19 commitment in the Buckeyes’ 2016 class, Williams is the second running back to join the fray. Fellow tailback Kareem Walker has been committed to Ohio State since January, though there certainly is some doubt surrounding his status
Ahhhhh welcome to the college football recruiting roller coaster and this time it gets the Wisconsin Badgers. First off, this kid like most 18 year olds is an attention whore, first North Carolina, then Wisconsin now the #1 team in the nation Ohio State. I have been thinking about the past few very good recruits (Running backs that have decommited and i have a theory to the whole thing.) First Joe Mixon to Oklahoma and now WIlliams.
Here is why the Badgers are losing recruits and i’m kind of worried:
1.) Paul Chryst- I am not a fan of Paul Chryst, no passion or intensity, very conservative, very mediocre in my opinion. I would want to play for him either, he’s not going to get you fired up before a game, he’s going to lose recruits to big schools, college football coaches are like salesman if you don’t sell athletes and excite them when momma let’s you into their kitchen and cooks her best briscuit well fuck you’re going to get 3 star recruits and only farm boys to block for you.
2.) Ohio State and Urb and Harbaugh- Wisconsin is caught in a tornado and firestorm of Harbaugh and Michigan Fever and Urb Meyer just dominating the fuck out of everyone in the Big 10. Urb is 100% doing $100 handshakes with players, wisconsin is too high class for that but that won’t win you b10 championships. Michigan and Ohio State are passing us up as far as coach, excitability and playmakers and it makes me sick.
Ron Dayne needs to get some freakishly athletic woman pregant so he can run over bitches for tOSU and Michigan asap. Dude loves Hennessy.
Back on the blogging grind.
