2020. DB Joel Williams 6-1 180. Madison Prep Academy. Baton Rouge LA. **** 5.19.2019. Commitment. x 6.10.2019. No Longer Committed. The Florida Gators picked up their second verbal commitment for the class of 2020 in as many days on Sunday when Baton Rouge (Fla.) Madison Prep Academy cornerback Joel Williams pulled the trigger and committed over finalists Georgia, LSU, and Tennessee. Williams is coming off a weekend trip to Gainesville for the Gators second annal Gator Grill Out in Gainesville and announced his commitment through his Twitter account. Williams announced his plans to make a commitment during his time on campus and around the coaching staff. It was the four-star defender's second time in Gainesville this spring and was all he needed to see to feel comfortable jumping into the class. The Gators are looking to fill depth in the secondary this cycle, especially after the blow to depth with the recent loss of freshman cornerback Chris Steele, who recently announced his plans to transfer from UF to Oregon. With his 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame, the Florida staff feels Williams can bring some versatility to their secondary. “The coaches tell me they like how I can play both [safety and cornerback], and I can do more than a lot of kids my size at corner," Williams said in a previous interview. The Gators have also produced several NFL draft picks in the secondary over the years, and it's their production at his position that was a big selling point in his recruitment. "I'm trying to go to the league, so I'm trying to go the school that helps me go to the league." The 247Sports Crystal Ball was correct on Williams, with 50-percent of the predictions pointing to the Orange and Blue. In-state LSU, Texas A&M, and undecided picks were also logged for Williams previously. He was recruited to Florida by cornerbacks coach Torrian Gray and area recruiter Greg Knox. The 247Sports Composite, an industry generated average, currently ranks Williams as the Nation's No. 234 overall prospect in the 2020 recruiting class and the No. 13 athlete as well as the No. 9 prospect in Louisiana.
