4-star Baton Rouge standout opens up about Florida commitment, LSU’s chances

Geaux Nation

Joel Williams, a four-star defensive back from Baton Rouge, committed to the Florida Gators on Sunday. The Madison Prep standout took some time to sit down with Louisiana Geaux Nation to talk about his commitment, what separated Florida from other schools, and if LSU could possible make up some ground in his recruitment. 

Williams said Florida is recruiting him as a defensive back, but what he liked the most was the Gators were open to using him in several different spots on defense — nickel, cornerback, or safety.

The Baton Rouge boy chose Florida over LSU, Florida State, Auburn, Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Texas A&M and many others (according to 247 Sports).

The highlight of his trip to Gainesville this past weekend? A water balloon fight with head coach Dan Mullen.
