Williams enjoys his first game for the Florida Gators

2019 defensive end Cameron Williams (6-5, 215, Hollywood, FL, Chaminade-Madonna) was one of many recruits in the Swamp on Saturday night to watch the Florida Gators play Texas A&M.

Williams committed in July and this was his first trip back to Gainesville since then and it was a good visit according to the defensive end.

“Yeah, this was my first game,” Williams said of Saturday’s game. “I love being here. I’m disappointed that we lost but we’re gonna bounce back, definitely. It feels like home. This is my home.”

The 2019 commit played close attention to the Gators defense and one particular defensive end stood out to him.

“Defense held strong,” he said of the defense on Saturday. “Offense needs more work. They gotta work harder. #96 [CeCe Jefferson] He did a good job coming off the end.”

While on campus, Williams had the chance to meet with several coaches and they all had one message for him.

“It was great, actually. They told me that they’re proud of me and to keep it up,” Williams said of the coaches reaction to seeing him again. I talked to Coach [JaJuan] Seider, [Chris] Rumph and Jim [McElwain].”

The coaches also told him to watch the number of young guys playing in the game and that was something that stood out to Williams during the game.

“I like it, I love it,” he said on the Gators playing freshmen. “Yeah, they still have more time to develop. They’re still learning.”

Williams also had the chance to bond with several other Gators commits while in the Swamp on Saturday.

“Yeah, I’ve done that. That’s family. We’re all family. I love them,” Williams said on meeting the rest of the commits. “We were just having a good time.”

Despite a good visit at Florida, the defensive end says he’s still hearing from two other schools and he’s listening to their pitch.

“Nah, my recruitment, it’s not shut down but I’m committed,” he said on his commitment status to Florida. “Kentucky and UCF are still recruiting me.”
