Dynamic 2023 WR views love as a “top priority” for UGA

This was because of his prowess as an All-American and one of the top 50 potential customers in receiver and his work as a hardwood state champion catalyst.

He was in Georgia for G-Day. Williams seemed quite comfortable sitting with some very passionate 2022 signers in the stands of the West End Zone. Those were the newer class’ Dawg who failed to graduate early.

After that visit, Williams told DawgNation that he gets better every time he is in Athens.

Williams also said no school has a guy who looks like Georgia freshman Christen Miller defensive tackle. Miller calls himself “FatCh7s” on his social media.

“Fat Chris is probably the coolest,” Williams said in April. “I’m not going to lie to you. It is funny. Fun. Freddo. You won’t find another Fat Chris anywhere. Good luck.”

She made a beautiful friendship with the charismatic 2022 All-American from Cedar Grove High School.

The 6-foot-3, 216-pound All-American just made its first official visit to the UGA this past weekend. There are some quick takes to trot here.

1) The atmosphere in Athens continues to improve for Hykeem Williams

Did he keep improving on his officer?

“Heck, yes,” he said. “Sure it does. She keeps getting better. Can you hear me? It wasn’t an unofficial visit, so you know it got better. “

He wanted to make two of his official visits this summer. This is because she didn’t have a loaded travel schedule in the fall. Georgia had last weekend. Pitt is active this weekend.

Williams said he will save Texas A&M and Florida State for two of his last three officials this fall. He is not sure which school he could receive his fifth official visit this fall at this time.

What does he like most about Bulldogs?

“Dude, that’s so much,” he said. “I don’t even know. It is just like a great school overall.

2) No school yet has a boy like Christen Miller

“He’s my boyfriend, man,” Williams said. “We are like brothers of another mother. … Nobody in the world has a boy like him “.

Those two freeze.

“It’s not even like pushing me to come,” Williams said. “He’ll just say ‘Can you hear me?’ And be like that. He says you have to come and introduce yourself. It’s not really about coming and playing ball, but we’re just building a relationship.

He sees Miller as a lifelong friend. Those two hope to be close by the time they’re 40.

“Facts,” he said.

3) He said that this time he can see himself in Athens

Williams had a lot of fun over the weekend. It wasn’t just the 5-star help from Shrimp and Grits she got on Saturday.

Can you imagine yourself in Georgia already?

“Yes, sir,” he said.

An official visit, especially to a place like Georgia that sees recruiting as the root of the program, should be great.

It would be news in this space if a blue-chip target did NOT have a fantastic OV. Georgia could house major officials in the event of a blackout, gas shortage, and even in the midst of bad weather. It’s like expecting your shoes to fasten and your chin strap to fasten.

What was the best way the official visit helped the ‘Dawgs?

“Only the relationships we have,” Williams said. “We talk a lot.”

Do you feel like it’s wanted and needed?

“Like a huge big priority,” he said.

He said Georgia always welcomes him.

“With open arms,” ​​he said. “Everyone is always excited when I get there. Everyone always makes sure I’m straight. “

Williams enjoyed testing the equipment among the coaches and other official visitors.

“It was just hype,” he said.

4) Texas A&M will continue to be an important factor in its recruitment

Williams has made many high profile visits to Texas A&M. There’s no denying that the Aggies are now a major player in any recruit they prioritize.

He had many favorable thoughts on the Aggies.

“It’s just beautiful there,” he said of College Station. “It is the largest campus in the country. As probably the nicest campus I have seen so far. The people there are great. “

Williams was asked to compare what he likes best about A&M with what he likes best about UGA.

“What do I like most about Georgia’s A&M?” He said. “Hmm. I don’t know. At the end of the day, it’s going to be all about relationships. What I like most about A&M would probably be the campus.

When he thinks of the ‘Dawgs, he doesn’t think of the scenario.

“It’s the relationship with Georgia,” he said. “When I think of Georgia, what comes to my mind is that if you ask me it’s a winning program. Since 2015, they are the third to win in college football. “

Hykeem Williams: The fun he had with his OV

You guys know Georgia by now, right? The ‘Dawgs always compete in everything. Williams said the funniest he had on the OV was when all the recruits played charades together.

Yes. Charades. Offended on the one hand. Defense on the other.

It was another sign that offensive prospects can stand out noticeably in the ’23 recruiting class. Williams could also be seen as a 5 star in charades.

“We played charades,” he said. “This was the funniest thing we did. We won. My team won. “

It wasn’t even close, he said.

Georgia receivers manager Bryan McClendon was a strong lead. The plan he has for Williams has been made clear. It’s going to be a lot of the balls and calls that George Pickens used to get in Todd Monken’s bout.

“Be that 1-on-1 guy,” Williams said. “The reference boy.”

He had his family with him during his official visit. She said they had a lot of fun too.

Hykeem Williams: He won’t let this decision get too complicated

Williams would now like to make his decision in the fall.

In April he said Alabama, Pitt, and Texas A&M were the schools that were really working to earn his signature on the scholarship documents. Basically it was like that.

“There is no point in wasting people’s time at this point,” he said. “Half of the people who have all these schools, I feel they just want a lot of people to stay on them and recruit them. They don’t understand how precious the time of others is. They are wasting people’s time and their money by going everywhere. They are wasting it. There are other guys out here who need a chance and have all these colleges focused on them for no real reason.

Does the decision become more and more difficult with each visit? She felt that way in April. She doesn’t feel that way anymore.

Will this decision be more difficult as it lasts?

“Nah,” he said this week.

How come?

“I know how to control all that stuff,” he said. “I know how to control a lot of things, so it’s not really hard. In the recruiting process, you have to write down the “pros” and “cons” you have of each school and build from there. You have to see if you can do it for every school. “

He is able to feel what is genuine to him. Not something prepared for a large rookie’s visit. He looks for that.

What is the greatest pro for the ‘Dawgs with him?

“The biggest pro would probably be the relationships there in Georgia,” he said.

And the “with” column?

“A lot of people say they get the ball rolling a lot,” Williams said.

The biggest “pro” for A&M was what he said earlier.

“University station,” he said.

He couldn’t invent a “crook” for the Aggies.

Hykeem Williams: The potential factor of Arch Manning

Williams pondered what the QB of the class might be like for Georgia. What would it mean for Arch Manning to secure a commitment from Georgia?

Would it help Georgia’s chances with Williams?

“Heck, yes, it does,” he said. “Heck yes. I need a quarterback. “

Manning as a quarterback would help dispel those perceptions of “you run the ball a lot” on the Georgia offense. He feels Georgia would throw the ball more with a guy like Manning in the middle.

“They have to do it,” Williams said. “It’s right.”

Williams said he will return to Athens for an unofficial visit. He will be at a game.

He has a big goal for his senior year.

“Goal number one is to finish the season healthy,” he said.

He plans to graduate early and enroll in January of 2023. The expected major is as impressive as some of those highlights and great catches.

“Most likely robotics or engineering,” he said in April.

When it arrives, that school will have a truly great director in its reception room. McClendon and Kirby Smart made sure he got the message loud and clear before leaving his official visit.

“They are a priority,” he said.

He outlined the main keys to this decision. When the man said he won’t let it get too hard, he wasn’t kidding. He was able to simply reduce it.

“Be comfortable wherever I go,” he said.

What comes next?

“Development,” he said.

Georgia has been able to share its side of the development with many of its official visitors recently. Anthony Evans recently detailed how the ‘Dawgs were able to show him explosive plays in the passing game in the first half of last fall’s games.

He was also intrigued that Georgia has had nine NFL picks over the past 10 years. There are only four programs that have had more. Clemson and Ohio State had 11. Alabama and LSU had 10.

Bulldogs are ahead of other heavy notables like Oklahoma, Michigan, USC, Florida, Notre Dame, Penn State, Texas A&M, Miami, FSU, Texas, and Oregon in that specific stat.
