·1 min read

Georgia football early enrollee Mykel Williams has been named High School Defensive Player of the Year by the Maxwell Award.

Williams, out of Hardaway High School in Columbus, Ga., dominated in his senior season, racking up 81 tackles, 20.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks.

The five-star recruit made his impact felt in all-star games and practices before joining the Bulldogs in January.

With Williams’ combination of size, strength and speed, it’s easy to see why he is one of the top defensive prospects in the entire country.

Williams should have an opportunity to contribute early on at Georgia.
