Mykel Williams is name you want to know. Many college coaches are starting to learn it, and he is rapidly approaching double-digit offers. Tennessee jumped on Williams first. The Vols offered June 22 at camp and it was "exhilarating" to get that news a month after his sophomore year.

Since that first offer, the 6-foot-5, 258 pound defensive end out of Columbus (Ga.) Hardaway has added offers from Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina and Troy. All those came after the 2019 season.

Williams is only a sophomore, but he is already getting out, visiting schools, and out of the schools that have offered, he has tripped to Auburn, Athens, Columbia and Knoxville. He shares his thoughts on each of those programs.

Auburn: "I was at Auburn right before the dead period and I have been to a game, so I know some things about them. I really like coach G (Rodney Garner). He knows how to coach, he has put a lot of guys in the NFL and that really stands out. I think he has put 44 guys into the NFL, so how could you not like coach G if you are a defensive lineman?"

Georgia: "I really like coach Tray Scott a lot at Georgia. He is a cool guy, he has a cool personality and we have been talking a lot. I have visited Georgia a couple of times too, and I like it up there. It is a cool place."

South Carolina: "I have visited South Carolina once and they probably have the top facilities I have seen. I like the campus, the facilities and it was a nice place."

Tennessee: "I have been there for a camp, then for a game, and I like the coaches and the fans At the game, the fans were crazy and I really liked that. They have a lot of passion. The coaches have stayed in communication, so that has been good too. Tennessee being first to offer means something too. They got it started and I really appreciate that."

He is looking to visit Kentucky for the first time in March, then get back to Georgia and Tennessee in the spring. It is still early, so he is in no rush to get through the recruiting process.

"It is crazy with the offers coming in, but I am just staying humble," said Williams. "I am always focused on my schoolwork, taking care of my grades and letting everything just happen. "I am not ready to name a leader or anything like that. It is just too soon for that."

Williams had 58 tackles, 24 quarterback hurries, 18 tackles for loss and 11 sacks in 2019
