Notre Dame Football Recruiting

2022 ATH Terian Williams Impressed With Notre Dame

April 13, 2019

Terian Williams‍ is still in the early stages of his recruitment, but schools are already serious about him and the 2022 Georgia athlete is serious about the process.

That’s why Williams was in South Bend on Saturday to watch Notre Dame’s spring game.

“It went very well,” the 6-foot, 180-pound freshman said. “I liked all of the facilities and the game was great.”

He was impressed with what he saw.

“I went through the locker room and saw some of the weight room and the academic hall,” the Parkview High School standout said. “I know they’re adding on to it, but I like how they had everything set up. The area is very spread out to give them a lot of room to work out. I liked that.”

He also enjoyed taking in the annual Blue-Gold Game.

“The game was good,” Williams said. “I like how they played it with offense and defense. I thought it was real up-tempo. I liked the no-huddle they were running.

“When I watch, I look at my position, the quarterback. I look at the safeties and DBs, how they play their defense and how the quarterback is going through his read and progressions. I picture myself, ‘How would I do this if the quarterback did this? How would I do this if the defense did that?’”

Williams plays quarterback and defensive back and doesn’t have a preference.

“I can play both, wherever I’m needed on the field,” he said.

He has early offers from Tennessee, Kentucky and Howard.

“It’s nice to have SEC offers and know that they’re looking at me at this point in my career,” said Williams. “But I know I need to keep on going and keep staying on top of my academics and on the field.”

He spoke with multiple Notre Dame coaches during the visit.

“They said they should be coming down,” he said. “Spring ball starts for us on May 7th, so Coach Todd Lyght said he’d be coming down to see us.”

Williams thought the Irish staff came off well.

“I really like how they were very confident in what they were doing and how they said I could come in right off the bat after my senior year,” he said. “I really like how they wanted me.”

The youngster said he “most definitely” will be coming back for a camp.

It is early, but Williams already has an idea of what will be most important when he’s making his decision in the end.

“Mainly, academics. That’s always number one. Then, the facilities, that’s another thing, making sure they’re up to date. Also, going into a family environment. I want to know that I’ll be welcomed and can trust in my coaches.”
