Gators offer and host in-state wide receiver over weekend

On Thursday, the Florida Gators offered a scholarship to Carrollwood Day (Tampa, Florida) wide receiver Izaiah Williams, and the three-star pass catcher quickly made his way to the Swamp on Saturday for another visit with the team, according to Donavan Keiser of Gators Online.

Williams most recently visited Gainesville in January to stop by the Swamp for one of Florida’s Junior Days. Following this visit, one where he got to meet with the team’s new receivers coach Billy Gonzalez, Williams sees himself returning to UF soon.

“They welcomed me like I was here like it was home, great hospitality,” he said to Keiser. “Definitely see myself coming back here watching the spring game and just trying to get, you know, used to the family and build that chemistry with everyone else.”

Williams got to see Gonzalez run practice and liked what he saw. Gonzalez is “down to earth” and will let you know when something isn’t right. That’s the style of coaching Williams prefers, so it looks like Florida is checking off some of his boxes.

Official visits will likely come over the summer for Williams. He says Florida is “definitely gonna be one,” but only time will tell if that claim holds true. The plan is to make a decision before his senior season, but plans can change too.

Things look good for Florida right now, though. The On3 recruiting prediction machine has USF on top with the best odds to land him at 8.8%, and a good visit to the Swamp could easily put Florida at No. 1 on that list. is the only recruiting service that gives Williams a four-star grade. The 247Sports composite ranks him at No. 420 overall and No. 61 among wide receivers in the class of 2024.
