Earlier this morning, 2017 Defensive back Jamyest Williams received an offer from The University of Michigan. He is young cornerback with excellent instincts, and has a knack for breaking up passes thrown his way.
He has done well to this point in his career, and still has a long time to go in high school, so he has time to sharpen his skills, and I think the time can help him develop into a shutdown corner by the end of his high school career.
Based off of what I saw, I noticed that Williams is a player that seems to have a motor that never stops. The opening scene of his highlights, which can be seen below the post, he chases down a defender from the opposite side of the field. He has an impressive burst of speed, and that will help him recover if he gets beat deep on a route.
Williams received an offer today, and it will be a good thing for the Wolverines to be interested in him early. If there is any mutual interest at all, Brady Hoke should be all over him.
He will need to work on a few parts or his game, but it is the same way for every young defensive back trying to get to the next level. He has the speed to cover for his mistakes, and that will go a long way.
The situation is still fluid, and Williams has an eternity to decide where he wants to attend school, but the coaching staff should be in on him through his process.
Overall, Williams is a player that has the ability to be a legitimate cover corner at the next level. When he tunes up his skills, he can be a dangerous player on any defense, so it doesn’t shock me that Michigan offered him.
Below are highlights of Williams. We will continue to update you on Williams’s recruitment, as well as all other Michigan targets, as they develop.
