2020 4-star WR Rashawn Williams Always Had Michigan in Top 3, Reflects on Visit

Rashawn Williams never released a top list, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t interested in Michigan.

The four-star wide receiver from Detroit (Mich.) Martin Luther King spent much of his time at Ohio State in the offseason and did not visit the Wolverines – at least not until the Nov. 3 game against Penn State.

Williams watched former Cass Tech (Mich.) High School wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones haul in a 23-yard score from quarterback Shea Patterson in Michigan’s 42-7 drubbing.

“The visit was great,” Williams said. “I loved the atmosphere, and the fans were just amazing.”

After the visit, Williams confirmed he was always, and still is high on Michigan.

“Michigan was never out of my top 3 schools, but I just never made a list,” Williams stated.

Assuming Ohio State is another school in his top three, that leaves Michigan State and Missouri for the final spot.

Williams has offers to play for Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State, Missouri, Toledo, Kansas, Maryland, Old Dominion, Akron, Temple, Kansas State, Morgan State, Morehouse, Central Michigan, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Hampton, Boston College, Syracuse, Western Michigan, Indiana, Nebraska, Cincinnati, Bowling Green, LSU, Tennessee and Washington State.

Michigan is special to the highly touted wide receiver due to the honesty and integrity of the program, which he has observed himself and heard from his friends – Andre Seldon and Cornell Wheeler.

“You never hear anything bad about the staff from the players and commits,” Williams said.

Seldon, a Belleville (Mich.) 2020 four-star cornerback, and Wheeler, a West Bloomfield (Mich.) 2020 three-star linebacker, are both committed to the Wolverines.

“Andre and Cornell tell me that it’s like family between the fans, players and coaches (at Michigan),” Williams added.

Martin Luther King plays on the road against Allen Park on Nov. 9 in the MHSAA Division 3 state semifinals. Williams has helped pace the Crusaders throughout the 2018 season.

Williams is ranked No. 146 in the nation, No. 24 at wide receiver and No. 3 in Michigan, according to 247Sports Composite.
