Kedron Williams commits to Washington State

New, 2 comments

The OLB/SS prospect also held an offer from Boston College.

NCAA Football: California at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

WSU picked up its fourth commitment of the 2018 class when Kedron Williams of St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif., announced on Twitter that he intended to play his college ball in Pullman.

Williams lists himself as a 6-foot-1, 192-pound outside linebacker/strong safety prospect, but he doesn’t yet have a profile on any of the major scouting services, which means we can’t tell you how many “stars” he’s rated. According to his Twitter feed, he holds one other reported offer, from Boston College. WSU was the first to offer.

From watching his highlight video, he appears to have spent the majority of his time near the line of scrimmage, playing a hybrid LB/DB position that would be akin to WSU’s “nickelback.” His highlights don’t show any eye-popping plays, but they do show a sure tackler who looks competent in coverage.

He doesn’t appear to be the type who could put on a bunch more pounds and beef up into linebacker, so it wouldn’t surprise me if WSU is actually envisioning him in the same kind of role in college:

They also could be thinking of him as a safety, but he doesn’t show any of those skills in the video.

Williams joins defensive players Victor Terry and Tyree Wilson in the 2018 class, along with wide receiver Calvin Jackson Jr.
