It makes sense, given that Mel Tucker was just part of a Georgia staff that took the Bulldogs toe-to-toe with Alabama. Tucker and his staff are hitting the state of Georgia hard this cycle, and they are succeeding. After hitting a home run with Jake Wray earlier this cycle, Tucker and OLB coach Brian Michalowski went back to the deep talent well to pull a great player in Alvin Williams.
Williams hails from Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood, Georgia, which is a little southwest of Atlanta. At 6’4 and around 220 pounds, he has the perfect frame a wide defensive end or even a stand up OLB, and could possibly shift more inside if there’s room. All in all, he had offers from some big name defensive teams. Colorado beat out Louisville, Michigan State, Baylor, Kansas State, Kentucky and Memphis for William’s services.
Alvin Williams is just a football player. His tape shows some great athleticism, but more than that, he just seeks and destroys the football. He makes plays all over the front seven, from inside defensive tackle to middle linebacker, and in almost all of them he is running downhill and splitting blocks.
