Nation’s No. 1 WR prospect ‘shutting it down’ with recruiting

If one of the four recruiting services bumped up Preston Williams to the state’s No. 1 overall prospect, it would be hard to argue against it.

Right now, that spot is held by Westover defensive tackle Trenton Thompson.

Williams is a 6-foot-4 wide receiver from Lovejoy who is ranked as the state’s No. 5 overall prospect.

He’s also listed as the No. 1 WR in the USA.

This past week, Williams participated in The Opening all-star competition, and lived up to his advanced billing, according to some of the recruiting analysts.

I think Williams is the best WR prospect that Georgia has produced since Da’Rick Rogers in 2009.

Like Rogers, Williams is headed to Tennessee.

Will Preston take any more visits? Are UGA and Florida still in the picture? Will his girlfriend’s college plans affect his final destination?

Williams talks about that and more candidly in the below video:

One more thing: I wouldn’t have a problem with Thompson, Williams or Callaway two-way star Terry Godwin (who probably is the state’s most overall talented player) in the top spot. And you could probably throw Chuma Edoga in there as well.
