Defensive end Justin Williams out of Armwood High School in Seffner, Florida, is officially a Wake Forest Demon Deacon after signing his National Letter of Intent today.
First I would like to thank God and my parents for supporting me. I also would like to thank my coaches for helping me through my recruiting process. I am proud to say I have committed to University of Wake Forest.@Armwood_Hawks @Coach_EDavis @WakeFB @CoachCohenWake pic.twitter.com/KeNUdDk8Sg— Justin Williams (@williams_j17) December 4, 2018
He is a three-star and ranked as the 116th SDE in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Dave Cohen was the primary recruiter on Williams, and landed him over Syracuse, Southern Miss, South Alabama, Miami (OH), Maryland, and North Dakota State.
Huge S/O to my boy @williams_j17 for committing to @WakeFB Been a long road but the #GoDeacs and @CoachCohenWake are getting a really good one here. #DL #DE #PassRush #qbsack @DLineVids @HamiltonESPN pic.twitter.com/9OY1gkMY7B— Nathan O'Neal (@FeetHipsHands) December 5, 2018
Williams joins Will Smart as the other SDE in the class, and his athleticism really sticks out on highlight reels, especially given his 6-4, 250 pound frame.
He was the 19th and final recruit in the 2019 class for the Deacs, but in this case last is certainly not least, as the coaching staff had been keeping a close eye on him for a long time. According to Les he plans to enroll at Wake in June and is excited to get to Winston-Salem.
We are as excited about having him in Winston as well, and a warm welcome to him here at Blogger So Dear!
