Cameron Williams, a class of 2019 defensive end out of Hollywood, Florida, flipped from UF to Miami today.
247Sports ranks Cameron Williams No. 498 overall in the class of 2019. He is also the No. 70 player in the Sunshine State.
Williams is classified as a weak-side defensive end. 247 ranks him No. 30 in the country at that position.
He committed to Florida back in July, but today, just over a year before his National Signing Day, he made a switch.
Williams announced that he is flipping from Florida to the Miami Hurricanes. The U offered him last month.
He took an unofficial visit to Miami last week. He also got a visit from Miami assistants Manny Diaz and Craig Kuligowski, so the ‘Canes staff has really been putting in work here.
Today, he made his verbal pledge. He is the 10th player committed to Miami in the class of 2019.
He posted about the decision on Twitter. It also features photos from his visit.

I’ve transcribed Williams’s full note above. Here’s what he wrote:
“First Off, I would like to thank God for the opportunity of blessing me to play football. I would also like to thank Coach Mac for offering me 4 years to play football at the University of Florida, and also Coach Seider for recruiting me. I would also like to thank my coaches that has been on my side throughout my high school years. With that being said after talking it over with my family, and my coaches I would like to announce that I have decided to flip my recruitment to The University of Miami. #Surge19″
Miami’s class is already incredibly impressive. The ‘Canes 2019 group is ranked No. 2 nationally, and tops in the ACC at the moment.
