Williams wants to play for the Florida Gators but wants options

Several Florida Gators commits were in attendance on Saturday to see the Gators end the regular season and also see some of the assistant coaches.

Athlete Jalynn Williams (5-10, 188, St. Petersburg, FL. High) was one of those guys on campus on Saturday and he believes next year will be a better year.

“It was the last game, it was a tough loss,” Williams said. “I feel like we’re going to come back next year and way stronger.”
After the game was over, Williams had the chance to talk to his area recruiter who had a message for him.

“I talked to Coach Nuss [Doug Nussmeier] after the game,” he said on which coaches he spoke to. “He was just saying to get well and get prepared because we’re going to need you.”

Williams has been playing both ways this year and he described what the perfect position would be for him in college.
“I like offense but I like both sides of the ball,” Williams said on where he prefers to play. “I would like to play both sides of the ball like Jabrill Peppers did but we will see what the Gators have in store for me.”

The Gators aren’t the only team recruiting him as three other schools are hard after him.

“Auburn has been recruiting and I just took an official visit there,” he said on other schools recruiting him. “They offered me at cornerback. Ohio State is looking at me as a receiver, those are the two schools that are on me real hard. Miami has been talking to me as well.”

Florida fans can breathe a little easier though as Williams says Gainesville is where he wants to be.

“Florida is my dream school and I don’t want anything to go wrong with Florida,” Williams said on where he wants to end up. “But if anything does than I have to have a plan B.”

Williams also admits that he has a coach he would like to see coaching him in Gainesville next year.

“Whatever coach comes then I’m going to do my background check on them,” he said. “To see what kind of offense they run and that will make me determine my decision. I’m hoping [Scott] Frost gets over here so we can score some points.”

Next up for Williams will be more official visits as the athlete plans to early enroll.
“Just visits and narrowing where I want to go,” Williams said. “I’ll be graduating in January.”
