As of now, Texas and Auburn are the only two schools Williams is scheduled to officially visit this summer. He'll officially visit Auburn the weekend before he makes the trip to Austin (June 14-16).

Texas offered the speedy and versatile 5-foot-10 and 165-pound corner in January 2023. But the June official visit will be the first time Williams sees Texas in-person since he was offered early last offseason.

Williams committed to Auburn over the Alabama Crimson Tide, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Tennessee Volunteers, Texas A&M Aggies, and Florida State Seminoles on Feb. 26, 2024. He is Auburn's first and only cornerback commit in the 2025 class.

"It was a different feeling. I was planning some visits in the spring, I thought I would take official visits, but over the last four or five days, it just hit me. The more I thought about it, I knew Auburn was where I wanted to be. I knew it was time to commit and I knew Auburn the school."

After Williams committed to Auburn, he told On3 that head coach Hugh Freeze and the Tigers were able to get him to shut down his recruitment earlier than he was originally planning to.

Williams is a dynamic athlete who plays wideout and corner in high school

Texas likes the track speed and athleticism that Williams brings. He's a sub-21.5-second 200-meter dash guy who is also one of the fastest track and field athletes in the 100 and 200 meter events in the state of Georgia.

Williams plays both cornerback and wide receiver at Buford High School. His straight-line speed and acceleration makes him a viable deep threat for Buford's passing game. He's also willing to put his head down and fight for those tough yards after the catch to move the chains.

Williams' coverage skills are also impressive. His football IQ and speed allows him to stick to opposing wideouts in one-on-one man coverage while defending a multitude of different route concepts. Him playing both sides of the ball also gives him the timing and awareness to jump routes and make plays on the ball to generate turnovers and pass breakups.
