There has just been a landslide in the recruiting landscape and the epicenter is in Tallahassee. The Florida State Seminoles have secured a verbal commitment from Hykeem Williams, one of the nation’s top high school prospects, regardless of position.
Williams, who measures 6’3,200 pounds, is a bona fide 5-star wide receiver from Fort Lauderdale, FL. He is considered the 22nd best player in the country according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings (4th best WR and 5th best player in Florida). Coveted by nearly every major school in the nation and with offers of a who’s-who under current power programs, Williams announced today for Florida State on the Texas A&M Aggies, Pittsburgh Panthers, Miami Hurricanes and Georgia Bulldogs.
