RB Ty’son Williams of Crestwood (6-1 195) will be one of the state’s best in 2015. He’s coming off a season of 1516 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. As a sophomore he rushed for 1008 yards and 17 scores. “He has great vision and feet,” said his coach Keith Crolley. “He stops on a dime and cuts well. He’s got some wiggle and he’s got great hands. He’s not the fastest guy but he’s fast enough to get away from people.
Williams attended Clemson’s recent junior day and he now holds offers from the Tigers, Florida State, North Carolina, Georgia, NC State, Duke and Appalachian State.
“It was a pretty good trip,” Williams said. “I’ve been talking with coach Tony Elliott for a minute and and he was telling me how it would be. I saw it coming (the offer) and when it came I was excited still. All the facilities are top notch. They were telling me I have a chance to be one of the heavier backs and they would put me in open space and allow me to make plays.”
Williams said his next visit probably would be to North Carolina. He also wants to visit Georgia again. He’s been there for a football game. He’s not heard much from USC at this point and more film is being sent to them.
Right now Williams has a top five of Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, NC State and Duke. Clemson, Georgia and North Carolina are evenly matched at the top he said. Williams would like to make his decision before his senior season if he can.
