Miami DE commit Williams prepares for UM official, recaps in-home staff visit

2020 Miami DE commit Quentin Williams has been committed to Miami since June, and the 6-3 235 pound prospect will take his Miami official visit this weekend to Coral Gables, along with the majority of UM’s commitments in the 2020 class.

“I’m expecting a lot of information to be cleared up with my parents about school stuff,” Williams said. “I’m planning to have fun and I’m expecting to see people that I haven’t seen too much, but that I’ve been talking with.”

Last week, defensive line coach Todd Stroud made the trip up to North Carolina to see Williams for his in-home visit.

“He came to my school, watched me go through a working lifting, and then we went out to eat and talked,” Williams said. “We were just talking about when I get to Miami and life in general.”

As the game was close to home for him, Williams went to the Miami-Duke game two weeks back. Although the Canes fell to the Blue Devils, Williams was paying close attention to how the defensive line played.

“The defense was good, the D-Line got a lot of sacks, so that’s what I mainly noticed,” Williams said.

Unlike most of the class, Williams anticipates enrolling over the summer. Of course, the Canes just finished their 2019 regular season at a disappointing 6-6, but Williams didn’t show much concern and still believes in what Diaz is building at UM.

“I think it’s going to be way better in the future,” Williams said. “Being 6-6 with a new coach and a lot of the players weren’t coached by Manny Diaz from the beginning, you can only expect so much. But this class coming in, I think we’re going to turn it around.”

During his senior year, Williams was part of Mallard Creek’s undefeated regular season at 10-0-1, but the Mavericks fell in the second round of the playoffs to Zebulon B. Vance, 13-7.

“Individually, I think I did alright,” Williams said of his senior season. “Some plays I think about and know I could’ve done better, but every football player regrets some plays. On the season, I was expecting to go all the way, but we were one play short. I’m still watching film after school.”
