Recruiting analysts have already remarked about William’s potential as a multi-year starter at a high caliber program with NFL Draft potential already.
The praise is not just coming from coaches and pundits. His peers have all commended Williams on his incredible game-wreaking ability. He excels at getting off the line of scrimmage, and locating the ball carrier. Those skills are vital for an elite pass rusher. Players like Jason Pierre-Paul have made a career out of being able to get to the ball carrier and take them down for a loss of yards.
The colleges that are recruiting him are not only looking to add another elite talent, but looking to add a productive member to their defensive end position group.
Blessed to be in this position !! 💫❤️ pic.twitter.com/OJ7thsysoP

The schools, like Alabama, use a dominating defense to overwhelm opponents, producing countless NFL linemen in just the past few seasons, like Quinnen Williams (#3 overall pick for the New York Jets in 2019) and Jonathan Allen (#17 overall pick for the Washington Redskins in 2018). They are just a piece of the elite talent these schools have produced. The big schools, like Alabama and North Carolina, among others, are able to attract elite talent due to the fact that they can make them into stars.
While it is unclear where Tyeik Williams will take his talents for his college career, it seems like a certainty that he will go on to star in college. His raw talent, size, and speed make him a formidable opponent for any offensive lineman looking to slow him down on a Saturday afternoon. In addition to his talent, the notoriety he will receive from going to a major Division I school will no doubt show the world what kind of talent Tyeik possesses.
As for the future, the only thing about Tyleik Williams is that he will make a splash wherever he decides to go.
