Players make an impression during four-star's official visit

In order to see the programs he needed to see before the month long summer recruiting dead period begins this weekend, Portsmouth (Va.) I.C. Norcom defensive end Antwaun Powell‍ took three official visits in the span of 12 days.

It began back-to-back weekend visits to North Carolina and Virginia Tech before ending with a trip to Florida on Monday through Wednesday.

Though Florida was late to the party by offering less then a month ago, the staff still prevailed upon him that he is a priority target for the Gators as they attempt to upgrade their talent level along the defensive line.

I think Powell is why the staff is trying to hold on Williams, do you get that same feeling?

Do you think they would take both Powell & Williams and try and move one to a true LB? I just get the impression they want to see more from Williams in his senior season before giving him a spot.

He just responded with a couple of more quotes, which I added to update the article. We are doing this via DM as he travels back home.

Olivia should get him for a more extensive update.

I think one of the things about Williams is he is an incredible athlete for a defensive end, which is why he stands out at camp settings, and has a high ceiling, but he hasn't quite put it all together on the field just yet.

One thing about him, look at the photo on the We Chomp Chat that Todd Grantham posted after hosting the rush ends/outside linebackers - they all basically look like Williams. Florida needs some kids with some meat on them.

That has been a concern of mine, especially at safety...we seem to have a lot of athletic guys that appear to be undersized for their position....maybe it is just an optics thing when watching the games...
