WKU Recruiting: Tops Add Another Peach State Gem
On Friday, WKU picked up not only another member of their 2018 recruiting class, but another member of their 2018 recruiting class from the state of Georgia in Kawan Williams.
I couldn’t really find much on Williams post-commitment. Rivals nor 247Sports really had much on him, and despite Williams saying he’s a three-star athlete in his Twitter bio, 247Sports had him at two-stars (I couldn’t find a rating on Rivals).
His Hudl tape is available, however, and his title of “athlete,” is on full display.
He plays receiver, kick returning, cornerback and a bit of quarterback (I’m assuming out of the wildcat) and can be used out of the backfield as both a runner and a reciever. He’s very slippery, especially when he’s trying to create space, and looks like he can jump incredibly well.
Recruiting Georgia has a short writeup on him and says that he needs to “continue to improve in the weight room,” but does note he has a “lot of potential at the FBS level.”
As exciting as WKU’s offense has been over the last half decade, the looks the Tops show on offense are pretty vanilla. If Sanford and Co. want to tinker with an athlete like Williams on the roster, maybe that can add a depth to the offense (i.e. the wildcat) that the Tops really haven’t utilized.
Overal, I like what I saw form Williams and it’s hard not to like the diversity he displays on the field.
What do you think of Williams commitment? Would you like to see him play for WKU on the offensive or defensive side of the ball? Let us know in a comment below, via Twitter at @TheTowelRackWKU or on our Facebook page.
