Four-star wide receiver and Alabama-native E.J. Williams is a four-star prospect with offers from across the country. But Alabama and Auburn might be on the verge of losing out on the top wide receiver from their state if the Clemson Tigers keep up their efforts.
According to The Clemson Insider, Williams had yet another visit to the Clemson campus this past weekend and had more praise for the school after the trip. He stated in an interview with the publication that the Tigers fit his style of play.
“I think I would mesh very well (with them),” Williams said, “mainly because my frame takes after most wideouts at Clemson and my style of play,”
Williams also revealed that he got to see the group of receivers and was very impressed. When asked whether the idea of going to Clemson appealed to him, he acknowledged that it was.
“Most definitely does,” he said in regards to Clemson as a college option. “It would be great.”
In February, Williams announced his top 12 schools, including Clemson. He hasn’t cut the list down yet, but after this visit, says Clemson is “in great position” in his recruitment.
Per 247Sports, Williams is the No. 88 overall prospect in the country, the No. 19 wide receiver prospect in the country, and the No. 2 prospect from the state of Alabama.
He is former high school teammates with Tigers wide receiver Justyn Ross and safety Ray Thornton, and got to see them again at practice.
If the Tigers do manage to secure a commitment from Williams, he would be their highest-ranked recruit from the state of Alabama since they landed Ross in 2018. Ross was the No. 1 prospect from the state that year.
