Florida is looking for playmakers in the passing game and class of 2013 receiver Taj Williams (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln) fits the bill.
Williams says that he currently holds over 20 offers including Florida, Florida State, Miami, Georgia, Clemson, Tennessee, Louisville, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Rutgers, and Oregon.
“I’ve been hearing a lot lately from Florida and Florida State,” Williams said. “I’ve been to several Florida State games this season and I’m going to Florida in a few weeks when they play Florida State.”
Williams visited Florida earlier this season when they hosted Alabama.
“That visit went great,” Williams said. “I liked it up there and everything was nice. The place was packed. It was a nice environment and it was a good game.”
Florida receivers coach Aubrey Hill and Florida defensive tackles coach Bryant Young are the recruiters for Williams.
“They are real laid back guys,” Williams said. “They tell you what it is and doesn’t sugar coat it. They are cool. I like them. They tell me to keep my head on straight and keep my grades up. They are always telling me to keep in touch and asking how my season is going.”
Williams does see the need Florida has for receivers like him.
“Florida is having a little trouble this season,” William said. “They need some receivers. They tell me all the time that they need some big time receivers. I like Florida though. They would be in my top five right now. One of my coaches went to Florida and he is always telling me stuff about the school.”
The 6-foot-4, 170-pounder is playing both ways for his team. He plays both cornerback and receiver. He says that most schools are recruiting him at receiver.
“I’m looking for a place like home,” Williams said. “I want a nice environment and a place that I can see myself living at.”
The four-star prospect according to 247Sports currently has two out-of-state programs at the top of his list.
“I like the season that Georgia and Clemson are having,” Williams said. “Those are the top two schools that stand out right now.”
