Williams, the speedy two-way standout from Archer High School, has been clocked at 4.35 in the 40-yard dash.

The 2017 athlete is one of the few underclassmen to get invited to “The Opening” all-star competition in Oregon at Nike headquarters.

Here’s his top 10 list in order: Clemson, Florida State, Texas A&M, Ohio State, Auburn, Oklahoma, Stanford, Michigan State, Georgia and Tennessee.

Williams is rated as the state’s No. 10 prospect in next year’s recruiting and is one of the most sought after high school players in the nation. He has 33 scholarship offers.

The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder combined for 1,140 yards and scored 13 touchdowns on offense this past season. He finished with 44 tackles and two interceptions on defense.
