ATHENS - As we’ve reported all month, June is the biggest recruiting season all year for Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs, and this past weekend the Georgia staff hosted some of their top targets on official visits.

One major official visitor in town was 4-star receiver Tyler Williams‍. The sure-handed, big-bodied reeceiver at 6-foot-3 180-pounds is towards the very top of Georgia’s receiver board, and some sources say he’s the No. 1 target for assistant Bryan McClendon. Throughout the spring, many sources felt like the Clemson Tigers were the team to beat for the Lakeland (FL) standout, but after a successfull visit to Athens over the weekend, it’s safe to say the Georgia Bulldogs could be tough to beat down the road.

What stands out the most about Georgia to Williams?

“For me, a big relationship and communication is key and I feel like they have done that better than anyone in my recruitment so far”, Williams told Dawg Post.

That’s a BIG statement. Sources say the staff made Williams feel like a top priority on his visit, and he said something similar to Dawg Post.

“Coach McClendon looks at me back when he went through the same process and knows what I’m going through so he knows how hard it can be”, Williams added. “I feel like he is a good coach because he knows what it takes to get to that next level because he’s experienced it before.”

It’s been a busy month for Williams who took his official visit to Clemson the first weekend of June. Williams of course took his official visit to Georgia this past weekend, and is currently on a mid-week official visit to South Carolina. His final official visit is set up to Texas A&M the weekend of June 24th.

So when could a commitment come?

“I’ll be committing during the season”, Williams said. “I don’t have a set date yet”.

Sources say multiple prospects made silent commitments to Georgia this weekend, and Williams could absolutely be one of those prospects. So while he may plan on committing this fall, there’s always a chance he jumps on board this summer.

As a prospect, Williams has plenty of size and length, but he’s a smooth runner with excellent hands as well. He’s great after the catch, he can help in the return game, and his best football is ahead of him. He has a knack for getting behind defenses, and he can make defenders miss down the field, and has a bright future if he continues to improve his route running and overall development.
