Top Louisiana 2021 safety names SEC-heavy top 6
The top 2021 safety in Louisiana is showing a strong interest in playing in the SEC. Kaine Williams out of John Ehret posted a top-six Friday on Twitter featuring five SEC teams: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M. Williams also included Oklahoma.
In 2018, 247Sports’ Gabe Brooks evaluated Williams:
Big-framed safety with good height and plenty of space to continue adding bulk in college. Instinctive in coverage. Patrols a lot of territory at the back end. Ballhawking safety who’s constantly around the ball. Provided terrific production as a sophomore (73 tackles, six interceptions). Dangerous with the ball and becomes a threat to score after the INT. Shows encouraging ability to break on the ball. Flashes impressive closing speed against the run. Generally delivers some pop upon arrival. Needs to improve consistency with tackling technique. Often a shoulder tackler instead of a wrap-up hitter. Will need to continue to fill out to maximize strength and close-quarters power. Owns strong safety frame potential but may better fit center field-type free safety role. Bona fide high-major prospect with long-term potential to reach top half of the NFL Draft.
Last March at “The Opening Regional,” Williams checked in at 6-1, 186 pounds and recorded a 32.50 vertical and 4.38 shuttle time. Rated 4-stars, the No. 3 safety, No. 5 Louisiana product and No. 88 prospect overall of the class on the 247Sports Composite, Williams already has 20 scholarship offers.
