There might not be another Georgia prospect in the state’s 2015 class that has a colorful personality like Preston Williams, the 5-star wide receiver from Lovejoy High School.

There might also not be another kid with as much football talent.

If I had to pick who I thought was the state’s No. 1 prospect right now, I’d go with Williams – in a landslide. I’ve watched all the top candidates.

He has a rare combination of size (6-foot-5), speed, foot quickness, play-making ability, and athleticism at wide receiver that I haven’t seen in Georgia since Da’ Rick Rogers was the state’s No. 1 overall prospect in 2010.

You know how we talk about most of these top prospects as having a “high ceiling of potential”? Well, that’s true with Williams, too. But he’s also getting it done right now in high school. He caught four touchdown passes in a playoff game this season.

Back to Da’Rick Rogers, who committed early to UGA but flipped and signed with Tennessee. Preston Williams committed early to Tennessee. Guess which school is closing in?

Williams told the AJC he’s “100 percent” with Tennessee but added “Georgia is right behind them.”

UGA gained favor with Williams after a recent visit with the Bulldogs. “Georgia looked old, kinda country, and boring, but actually it was great. Coach Ball is good people.”

Last month, Williams hinted that a school could gain favor with him if it evaluated his girlfriend for a track scholarship. Well there’s some new news there: He’ll explain that and so much more in the video.
