Two blue-chip commits in one week.
Just a few days after Florida State Seminoles football secured a pledge from four-star California linebacker Blake Nichelson, head coach Mike Norvell and staff earned a commitment from four-star receiver Hykeem Williams.
An instant boost to a 2023 Florida State recruiting class that continues to climb, Williams’ commitment is just the latest bit of momentum for the Seminoles on the trail.
Florida State put every bit of effort into recruiting the Fort Lauderdale prospect, finally earning his confidence with a 3-0 start to the season.
Williams chose the Seminoles over the Texas A&M Aggies, Pittsburgh Panthers, Miami Hurricanes, and Georgia Bulldogs.
What kind of athlete is Florida State getting? How does Williams project out at the collegiate level? What went into the Seminoles’ landing the receiver?
Three Stars break down Williams’ game as well as what it means for FSU on the latest episode of the Florida State of Recruiting podcast.
