On May 22 of last year, Brownsville, Tennessee receiver Darion Williamson got his first offer from nearby Memphis and Mike Norvell. A day later, the Vols and running backs coach David Johnson offered. In July, Williamson committed to UT, but now both Norvell and Johnson are at FSU—and Williamson is on his way.
A three-star prospect from Haywood High School, Williamson (6’3, 190) was offered by the ’Noles on January 10. He visited Florida State over the weekend, and evidently, he liked what he saw in Tallahassee. He decommitted from Tennessee shortly thereafter, committed to the Seminoles’ 2020 recruiting class, and has now signed his LOI to make it official.
Williamson is ranked as an athlete, the 47th best in the country, the No. 24 player from Tennessee, and the country’s 820th top prospect, overall. In addition to the Tigers, Volunteers, and ’Noles, he also has offers from Arkansas and Arkansas State.
Williamson is a big physical receiver with a wide catch radius. Do not expect him to run by a defensive back but he can box them out and use his body to create separation. Shows willingness to be physical as a blocker as well. Defensive highlights suggest an ability to be a strong special teams contributor.
