5-Star ATH James Williams Places Hurricanes In Final 2


The nation’s No. 1 ranked athlete, James Williams, has cut his list of schools down to two.

On Wednesday, Williams took to social media to announce his ‘final two’ schools, listing the University of Miami and the University of Georgia.

The Opa Locka, Florida native last played at Western High School (Davie, FL) but will be transferring to play football this upcoming season at American Heritage School (Plantation, FL).

Williams, listed at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, does a tremendous job using his athleticism and size that haunt quarterbacks and receivers all night long. The hometown star strives at the secondary position, being a threat to any pass that goes up in his side. Such remarkable play has the five-star listed by 247Sports’ Composite Rankings as the No. 10 overall player in the 2021 class, No. 1 athlete in the country, and No. 1 player in the Sunshine State.

Although all sides lean on Williams expected to choose Kirby Smart’s Bulldogs over Manny Diaz’s Hurricanes, the acquisition of Ed Reed to the Canes coaching staff could impact his decision.

“That’s amazing,” Williams said on Reed being part of UM’s staff. “That means that I could learn from the greatest.”
