Trinity Christian Academy defensive back Deontai Williams may feel a little uncomfortable when Georgia plays Florida in 2015.
That‚Äôs because Williams (6-foot-1.5, 175 pounds) was committed to the Gators for more than six months before flipping and committing to the Bulldogs on Saturday. The move gave Georgia 15 commitments for the class of 2015 and moved the Bulldogs back into Scout.com top 10 in national recruiting rankings.
‚ÄúWilliams is a very aggressive tackler who plays with reckless abandon,‚Äù Scout.com recruiting analyst Patrick Burnham said of the three-star prospect. ‚ÄúHe is a sure tackler who is also not timid about taking on blocks from lineman when playing down in the box as what most would consider to be an extra linebacker.‚Äù
Williams is just one of a slew of players from the Sunshine State who have committed to the Bulldogs. Four other prospects from Florida, all defensive players, have committed to Georgia.
That recruiting success in Florida is as a direct result of new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who has pursued Williams since he was hired.
‚ÄúThey really like my game and want me to come up there,‚Äù Williams said of Pruitt and the Bulldogs.
