Benedictine FB Notes: Williams Eclipses 10 Offers

Benedictine (Richmond, VA) rising senior defensive lineman Nigel Williams has certainly gotten the attention of FBS coaches, having scored offers from Boston College, Buffalo, Connecticut, Duke, East Carolina, Navy, North Carolina, N.C. State, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and more. Cadets head coach Greg Lilly says Nigel is “happy” with the offers he has received to this point, but other major programs continue to evaluate.

“Tennessee, Michigan State, and Notre Dame – schools you’ve seen come up with other guys in the state – were through [during the Evaluation Period] and liked him. They have not offered,” Lilly said.

Williams is gearing up for finals next week, but he’ll carve out some time this Sunday to attend Virginia’s Elite Prospect Day. No other visits have been scheduled, but look for the versatile lineman to hit the road this summer.

“He wants to get through exams and then see mom and dad’s schedule to figure out where he can visit this summer,” Lilly said. “It looks like they will take a road trip south to see those schools and then a road trip north to see the schools up there. Then, there will be more contact with the in-state schools.”
