Alabama DC Jeremy Pruitt reaches out to 4-star CB
LeAnthony Williams hasn’t heard from Kirby Smart yet, but he isn’t really concerned with that.
Williams, a 2017 4-star cornerback from Roswell (Ga.) High School, told SEC Country that he may just have to make another trip to Athens to get a chance to speak with the new coach.
“It’s not really disappointing,” Williams said. “There is a lot of stuff going on. I really just want to go up there myself and see what’s going on.”
The 6-foot, 170-pounder couldn’t make it to UGA’s big recruiting event this past Saturday because his school was playing in the AAAAAA Georgia state championship (Roswell lost to Colquitt County), but he is planning a trip for the spring.
One coach has reached out to him as of late, and that’s Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who took Smart’s position with the Crimson Tide.
Williams was close with Pruitt when he was at UGA, so with him being at Alabama now, does that make the Crimson Tide stick out more?
“I just want to think about what I want to do,” Williams said. “Coach Pruitt is a great coach and I want to make sure that I am making the right decision.”
He plans on having a favorite school in the coming months, but right now, everyone is even.
Williams is ranked as the nation’s No. 16 cornerback in the class of 2017 and the No. 25 overall prospect in the state of Georgia.
