4-star WR Says He Would "Go Crazy" In Georgia's Offense

January 20, 2020

The Georgia staff could be going back down to the sunshine state for receivers in the 2021 class.

Wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton pulled in two impact receivers from Florida last cycle in four-stars Arian Smith‍ and Marcus Rosemy‍. Now he’s got his sights set on another Florida standout, Plant City (FL) playmaker Mario Williams‍, who spoke to Dawg Post about this weekend’s visit.

“It was a good visit,” Williams said. “I got to speak with all the coaches including the new offensive coordinator. I had a 1-on-1 talk with him. My favorite part of the visit was to see how real the coaches are.”

The 4-star didn’t elaborate too much about Georgia’s new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, but admitted that he’s excited about the system the Bulldogs will be running in 2020.

“I would go crazy in their offense, especially with the new offensive coordinator there,” Williams told Dawg Post.

Williams released his “top 5” back on December 9th that included Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida. After his weekend visit to Georgia, Dawg Post feels the Bulldogs have jumped back into the mix for one of the biggest playmakers in the South. 

So, what makes the 4-star such a special talent? Dawg Post caught up with an assistant coach at Plant City for the latest.

“His biggest strengths on the field are his overall quickness and knowledge of the game”, Plant City (FL) passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach Anthony Rozier told Dawg Post. “He’s a gifted elite athlete but it’s his mindset that sets him apart from most high school athletes. I contribute that to his parents and upbringing as well the things that were embedded in him at the start of his ninth-grade season in the summer. His approach to practice is professional like... turn on his practice film and his HUDL film you see no differences.”

Rozier took his comments a step further...

“Mario is electric and fearless.  It’s not his opponent he sees in front of him. It’s the opportunity to be great and be the best. He really just wants to win and he understands he has to do his part for the team to win. Day one on which ever campus he decides to make his home he’ll be locked in and focused. I think he has the potential to be a household name in college. Him with the right staff, QB and WR core they all will do something special. He makes teammates better and pushes them to make him better. He’s special.”

Sources say Williams’ top 5 schools continue to be in the mix early on, and Dawg Post expects the Georgia staff, with the help of new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, to be in the mix with the 4-star receiver moving forward.

Williams is ranked as the No.6 WR prospect, the No.8 prospect in Florida, and the No.48 overall prospect in the 2021 class.
