Four-star wide receiver Tyler Williams was planning to visit the University of Florida in March, but that trip has now been moved to April 2, according to 247Sports.
Williams also plays for Lakeland High’s basketball team, so he’s had to plan his unofficial visits around a potential run to the state championships. His visit being delayed a bit doesn’t mean that Florida is slipping in Williams’ recruitment though. In fact, he appears to be quite fond of the Gators’ new head coach Billy Napier.
“I talk just about every day with coach Napier,” Williams said. “Me and his communication has picked up a lot. I’ve had basketball, so I will have to make it up there in April. Coach Napier is great. He’s a good coach. He’s let me know he’s going to recruit me hard.”
Williams has also been talking with wide receivers coach Keary Colbert. He’ll get a chance to put faces to names once he gets on campus. His last trip to Gainesville was for the Florida State game under Dan Mullen‘s staff. That gave him a good idea of what the Swamp looks like on game day, but now there’s a new scheme and culture to consider.
Clemson, Florida State and Miami have all hosted Williams in the new year, and he had plans to stop by Georgia and Stanford this spring as well. He has over 30 Power Five offers on the table, so it may take some time to narrow things down.
The 247Sports composite ranks Williams as the No. 32 receiver and the No. 244 overall recruit in the class of 2023.
