Virginia Tech secured a commitment from Loudoun County linebacker Chase Williams on Thursday, and we were able to catch up with his coach on Thursday night for some comments.
“Yes, he did commit this morning to Tech,” head coach Todd Hill said.
Williams made 163 tackles last season, including 33 tackles for loss. He also excelled at the tight end position. Coach Hill believes Virginia Tech is getting an outstanding football player and a great leader.
“As for a player he plays sideline to sideline every play,” Hill said. “He is like having not a coach, but a coordinator on the field. He knows the game inside and out. He’s a great leader on and off the field.”
Williams had scholarship offers from Miami and West Virginia, as well as Marshall, Rice, SMU and Tulane. Rivals.com rates him the #10 inside linebacker prospect in the country. He is the son of Gregg Williams, the former defensive coordinator of the Washington Redskins. He now holds the same position with the New Orleans Saints.
The Virginia Tech coaching staff did a great job recruiting Williams, and they were led by defensive coordinator Bud Foster.
“He’s obviously very excited and relieved that the process is over,” Hill said. “He feels there is a great opportunity at Tech for him to be successful. He feels very comfortable with Coach Beamer and Coach Foster.”
Williams is the 17th commitment of the 2010 recruiting class.
