Early Signing Day 2020: Mister Williams is a Colorado Buffalo!

The linebacker from California makes it official.

ANOTHER NAME FOR THE ALL NAME TEAM. Look, great players are great players, and their names could hieroglyphics and it wouldn’t matter. But, if I had my druthers, you take the great player with the better name before the Dan Smith’s and the Matt Russels of the world (sorry Matt). IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO SIGN A GUY NAMED MISTER WILLIAMS, YOU DO IT.

Mister plays for Oaks Christian High School in Westlake Village, California, which is just outside of Los Angeles. At a shade under 6’0 and over 220 pounds, he is a solidly built prospect that will factor in at ILB, where height doesn’t matter as much as play speed. Williams had plenty of offers as a recruit (which we mentioned), and the Colorado Buffaloes beat out UCLA and Cal for Mister.

MISTER CAN RUN AND HIT, y’all. He is a heady player that diagnoses plays almost immediately. His build and stature reminds me of Rick Gamboa, but he moves about half-a-second faster. Mister is a sure tackler who always wraps up and helps organize the rest of the defense. Let him learn behind Akil Jones and Nate Landman and then let him lead.

Welcome, Mister!
