Quick Take: At a position of need, Williams is a great addition at safety who will be expected to compete nearly immediately. A do-everything athlete who was Indianapolis’ player of the year in one of the more talent-rich seasons, Williams has the ability to drop the hammer in the box or play a more than competent centerfield.
In a defense that needs great football players, that might be the best compliment you can give Williams.
What he means to the Irish: He’s a critical addition to this recruiting class. And while his offer came later in the recruiting cycle than you might expect, he’s another in-state star that will continue Notre Dame’s resurgence in Indiana’s state capital.
