2019 UM DE commit speaks on his recent decision, updates latest

Stefan Adams
Back on January 20th, the Canes got their most recent 2019 commitment when 3-star DE Cameron Williams flipped from Florida to Miami. For the first time since then, Williams took the field to show off his ability, as he attended the Rivals 3 Stripe Miami Camp this past weekend. While he didn’t win DL MVP, Williams’ speed off the edge was a nightmare for most of the offensive linemen that lined up across from him.

“There was a lot of competition out there (on the offensive line),” Williams said. “I did good, I should’ve won MVP, I know I was one of the three (finalists).”

Following that standout performance on Sunday, the Chaminade-Madonna pass-rusher talked about what went into making the switch over to the Canes.

“I always grew up a UM fan and I love the coaching staff,” Williams said, smiling ear to ear when talking about Miami. “I’m always hearing from Mark Richt, coach Kool (Craig Kuligowski), Manny Diaz, all of them.”

So, what was the vibe like when he finally pulled the trigger for the Hurricanes?

“I talked to Mark Richt directly, he was pumped! He was very excited, saying he can’t wait. He texts me like every day telling me he can’t wait for me to get on campus.”

While Williams is currently locked in with the Canes, he doesn’t rule out possibly taking visits in the future.

“I’m still thinking about taking visits because I’m still a junior, but right now I’m solid (with Miami),” said Williams.

Recruiting has been ramping up a bit for the 2019 class with the 2018 guys signed, sealed, and delivered, but Williams wants to focus on his final year of high school and bring home a state title to Chaminade-Madonna.

“I’m pumped (for my senior year). I know we’re gonna get back to states. I’m just pumped and can’t wait to get back.”

Kid is an athletic freak and will make a nice jump in the rankings when it's all said and done. Definitely not a 3 star DE. Glad the staff got on him early. Gotta bring in these other major 2019 D line targets too
 
I expect us to take minimum of like 10 OL+DLineman for 2019. Need to kill it this year with crootin the big boys. Not worried about LB recruiting cause its so loaded this year. Need to land those few stud DBs down here too.

But the DL is clearly the main focus, and it looks like Richt and Diaz are going to be putting a lot of their focus in that group for this recruiting class.

Regarding the 3-star tag, absolutely. I talked to Rivals analyst Chad Simmons after the camp and he said some of the Rivals guys were already discussing a ratings bump for Williams after his performance.
 
One thing I can say about this staff, they find the 3 star guys that are getting bumped to 4 stars along the DL. Same w Silvera; hell, Nasty went from a relative unknown to a top 3 DT in the nation and we picked up on that ASAP.

Speaking of, give me the 3 star guy who works their way up to a high 4-5 star, all day everyday. Those guys have great work ethics and always play w a chip. They have to earn everything b/c nothing is given to them.

Gotta give credit to Gogeta on turning the board on to Silvera early on in the recruiting process. He knew what kind of a manimal Nasty Nesta was from the get go.

This is the key before worrying about 7 on 7 offensive stars. If we get Sorrells to go with Renata Brown and Denzel Daxon then we have the class we want regardless of rankings.
 
Offensive line, defensive line, offensive line, defensive line, rinse and repeat. Those two spots and the dude who handles the rock all the time are the most important spots on the field. Plain and simple.

Always value Gogeta's posts and his opinion. He doesn't get caught up in the board nonsense and really seems to know his stuff. Don't know what his occupation is (and I'm not asking) but he seems to know what's going on, especially in Broward.
 
Could be nothing, he could be on visit high, just keep an eye on him and expect some flip flopping until signing
