This kid brings it. Watched him play a single quarter in the 1st round of the state playoffs (3rd qtr vs BC) and he had 127 yards and a score.

He runs like all he can see is a pot of gold in the end zone. I like how his primary "move" seems to be a stiff arm. Nothing flashy or jolty. Just straight up the field to the pay dirt :)

If this kid is seriously concerned about a depth chart, he won't be going to UGA. They currently have 4 studs and maybe 1 will leave after this year.

I think it might have to do with speed and body control.

Here is Dexter Williams, #10 RB in 247 Composite, highlight reel from last year.
http://www.hudl.com/athlete/o/193708...ights/89758375

Here is Ty'Son Williams, $24 RB in 247 Composite, highlight reel from last year.
http://www.hudl.com/athlete/o/141410...ghts/118066392

So I watched both to compare. They are around the same height/weight.

Dexter is faster, by a step or two. He's also really good about finding space. When he approaches a defender he's already thinking about angles, b/c he's going left or right. A unique thing I noticed about Ty'Son is that he has a third "angle." in that sometimes he runs right at the defender as well as left or right. Ty'Son will seek to overpower a guy one on one. That may work in HS, but he'll have a lot harder time with that in the SEC (especially. early in his career.)

Also, Dexter seems a little more sure footed when his body is slanted, Ty'Son appeared to be a little more off balance and would need his arm extended to stabilize after cuts. Ty'Son does do a good job of catching the FB, and he drives his legs after contact better than Dexter. Ty'Son appeared to be harder to tackle, but that might be do to the level of competition. (Ty'Son's Crestwood HS is a 3A school in a league with around 1,200 students per school and Dexter's West Orange HS is a 5A school with just under 4,000 students per school.) So there is apparently a significant difference in the pool of talent each RB is going against. Also, Dexter's offer list is "better," but that could change at any time.


Ty'Son's a great RB, I think it would be great if he came to USC, I can see why he's in the Top 25 RB's in the country, he's and aggressive RB that does several things really well. If he improves his body control and overall speed he could improve his ranking, but I see why they have him ranked where he is. Of course, it's subjective though and if he was ranked 20 or 29 I could see that range being fair.

I've changed my Crystal Ball prediction for class of 2015 four-star running back Ty'son Williams (Crestwood/Sumter) from Georgia to South Carolina.
per Wes Mitchell via 247 Bolt


Quote:
RB Ty’son Williams of Crestwood is emerging as a national prospect as his offer list grows. Notre Dame recently offered Williams who also can count Clemson, USC, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, NC State, Duke and Georgia Tech on his offer sheet.
Saturday Williams attended USC’s spring game, his second visit to Columbia in the last three weeks.
“It was a good visit, I enjoyed it,” Williams said. “I just watched the game and then went into the locker room. I talked with coach Sands and he was just tellilng me about getting back up there. I liked how they used their running game.”
Williams also has visited Clemson and Georgia and has no future visits planned. He also has no favorites right now.
As for the in-state schools however, Williams does have a lean to the Gamecocks. “They are two good schools and I like them, but I like USC more than Clemson,” he said. “I’ve been down there more times and I’ve been bonding with their coaches a lot, communicating with them.”
Williams will begin his spring practice om May 5th.
