Four-star DT Mykel Williams (6-5 255) of Columbus, GA is set to make his college commitment on March 15th. He has named his final ten as Clemson, Ohio State, Georgia, LSU, Penn State, Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Kentucky and Southern Cal. He had hoped to visit some of these schools before making his pick, but with the NCAA dead period lasting at least until April 15th, Williams decided to gather as much information as he could on his own and go from there.
Williams said he’s been talking a lot with Clemson recruiter and defensive ends coach Lemanski Hall and recently did a Zoom call with the staff.
“Hearing a lot. Got a great relationship with the coaches there,” Williams said. “Coach Hall was telling me that I would fit in great, and the spot that’s there is mine for the taking.”
Williams said he’s his affection for Clemson goes back many years.
“That was my dream school ever since I was younger, and I just like the coaches a lot,” Williams said.
Williams said his plan is to pick from his final ten, so there won’t be a further reduction of the list. He doesn’t have a current favorite, and he’s just going to go with what he knows and what’s in his gut in making his decision.
“Just what I find out on Zooms, and feel,” Williams said. “Where I feel loved at. Where I feel I an play at.”
Williams has a dominant season in 2020 with 69 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, 17 sacks and 5 forced fumbles. He had 59 tackles and 10 sacks in 2019. He’s ranked the #4 defensive tackle nationally in the 247Sports Composite and the #5 prospect in Georgia.
