QB Ryan Williams

Ladies and Gentlemen, hailing from the depths of South Florida, our next prospect is Miramar's Ryan Williams. Obviously, the first thing that jumped out at me was his size. I'm not even talking about on paper- take a look at his film. It's pretty alarming how big he is. He towers over everybody on the field and is every bit of the 6'4 that he is listed at.

Throughout the film, the one thing that really impressed me was the consistency of his mechanics. This day and age, not many QB's at the high school level have these skills in their arsenal, but Williams shows how hard he has worked to master the QB position. His drops are crisp and precise, leaving no question about his work ethic. I'm not sure if its because of his number, but he reminds me a lot of Drew Weatherford, Florida State's old QB.Aside from his mechanics, you also have to love this kids arm. There is no doubt about it, Williams makes all the throws. When he has to take a little off, he does. When he has to drill a slant route, he does. I really think his arm translates to the next level. I'm not sure you can convince me otherwise.

Finally, for a big guy, he has some decent wheels. When he has to get out of the pocket he does a fairly decent job. He can make throws on the run, and for the most part, he does a damn good job. I have no idea why he is only a 1 star on Scout, and not even ranked on Rivals. I see that he went to American Heritage (Plantation) last year, and is headed to Miramar this year. Hopefully playing on a bigger stage will help him showcase his talent, because it is there. Let me know what you think, is this kid getting the bad end of the deal by the major recruiting sites?


  1. Big. Tall. White. Lacks a little zip, but makes up for it with his accuracy. Small Private School. Good Grades. Probably has had one on one SAT tutoring in his day. I have to believe he's got Ivy League QB written all over him.

  2. Gotta' love this kids size. He will find a home somewhere. Good luck Ryan

  3. this nigga is raw. period.

  4. I saw this kid play last year. He never really had a chance to show what he can really do as Heritage is a run oriented offense. He should excell at Miramar. Saw him play in the Nike 7 on 7, in which Miramar never lost a game. He was outstanding as are his recievers. He is much bigger than 6'4". He looks to be almost 6'6". he has D-1 written all over him!!

    Ry has "POTENTIAL." No1 has even seen the best of him yet becuase he's still learning and isn't even a polished QB yet(damn das scary). A real student of the game, his personality fits perfect with the position he plays because if he's rattled or not...defenders will never tell. He has a lotta work to do, but he can play @ any college in the country(xcept option and run heavy schools). Be careful, he's a dangerous athlete!

  6. This kid is the real deal and whoever skips over him in the recruiting class will be kicking themselves in the butt when he throws 300 plus in college every saturday.

  7. I have enjoyed reading your articles. It is well written. It looks like you spend a large amount of time and effort in writing the blog. I am appreciating your effort. .
