Got a buddy that coaches at Alcoa. Says he is a good kid and works hard on the field and in the weight room. Doesn’t know him to well yet since he is a freshman and he coaches on the defensive side of the ball.

I know Friend isn't the only one responsible for the Oline transformation but I think he's outperformed a lot of people's expectations there in development and recruiting.
It's amazing that the lynch mob has almost been completely dismissed this year.

Oline and Dline have both turned around and are definitely improving.

Be interesting to see if Vols offer.He won the states in wrestling at HWT as a Freshman going undefeated this year.
34-0 record, very unusual for a freshman in that weight class to be so dominant. Says he's 6-4, 295 now...long time off but with Williams and Jeffries, we might have some truly elite instate OL talent in the '23 class.

Williams has been a Tennessee fan as long as he can remembers and has been to campus countless times. He even visited for camps under the previous coaching staff and met former offensive line coach Will Friend on multiple occasions.

The 6-foot-4, 295-pound offensive lineman is hoping to get back to Tennessee for another camp in the near future to interact with the new coaching staff. He also wants to camp at Clemson, Auburn and Ole Miss.

Williams holds early offers from Kentucky, South Carolina, Tulane and Eastern Kentucky. He’s hoping to receive an offer from the Vols in the near future.

“They’ve called (Alcoa) Coach Rankin a lot,” Williams said. “To check on my grades, height, weight, things like that. I have a feeling they’ll offer me pretty soon.

“My aggressiveness and being able to move, being this big, is what I’ve heard college coaches like about my game. My technique and handwork is what I’m continuing to work on. I work on it all the time. Any time I can get some work in I do.”

Williams is going to play guard or center this upcoming season for Alcoa. He played tackle his freshman and sophomore year, but is being moved to guard to be the main pulling guard this season.
