    Was in great position on those plays, but hands of stone.

    Saw these nuggets on the 247 thread about him

    "-Deland (Fla.) defensive back Avantae Williams has high interest in Georgia. He has official visits lined up to Florida and Ole Miss, with many thinking the Gators are in the driver's seat. But one source I spoke to said that IF Georgia pushes, it could be hard to beat. That lines up with the comments from Williams last week at the Under Armour game. With the offers to Rakestraw and Daron Branch (Amite/La.), it is clear Georgia is serious about adding another defensive back in the class."

    I guess we’ll have to hope that Georgia doesn’t “push it”.

    Wiltfong just CB'd Tae to UF from what it looks like. I don't have the premium but it seemed pretty clear based on the twitter post

    yeah, I won't lie, I didn't read the rules too closely as far as posting screenshots or else I'd have posted my logic. the twitter post showing his picture and UF getting a DB then the article title saying Avantae Williams CB to...

    Definitely a gut feeling he'll be terrorizing WR's for the O&B next year!

    I like the kid, quick hips, good frame to add muscle to and seems to be a tough Mother. Also played against real HS competition , not a 2A school out in bumblesticks Mississippi where he was the BMOC among a bunch of slow mighty mites.

    If we get Williams and Britt stays then this DB class will be one to remember for a while.

    He won’t be visiting Ole Miss. More positive signs for us

    I confess I always get a little nervous when I hear we're trending for a guy, but he's still a few weeks away from deciding. I kind of want the momentum to be seized and a commitment to be publicly announced, you know? Too much time for something to go awry.

    Still, if Williams is cancelling a visit to Ole Miss, that's great. Kiffin's a weasel, but he's bizarrely compelling to high school recruits.

    if Demetric and Luke change their CB's to UF for Tae, he'll be 100% to UF

    Don't set ourselves up for failure. Plenty of time between now and Feb. What someone thinks today may be completely different in one week or even day, much less the end of January. Then people will bitch about how Mullen "couldn't close." Obviously a great player and would love to have him. However, at the rate Ga is going, we may still get him in a year when he realizes Ga lied to him, and he enters the transfer portal.

    Love his clips. Does everything you want a DB to do. Can't get a fix on his frame. He's kind of short but I'd like to think he has some good length. Won't matter much. Our shortest safety this year was one of the most reliable players on defense. 36" VJ will help him on jump balls. He should get immediate PT. It's amazing how quickly Coach Gray gets his players on the field.
