FSU has added another athlete to its 2020 recruiting class. Wide receiver Darion Williamson has signed his National Letter-of-Intent with the Seminoles this morning. Williamson is the high school teammate of fellow signee Markeston Douglas.
Williamson, 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, had been committed to Tennessee prior to taking an official visit to FSU on the weekend of January 24th. Shortly after arriving back home from his visit the Brownsville (TN) Haywood High School product committed to the Seminoles.
FSU has listed Williamson as a wide receiver. He also played safety/linebacker in high school.
According to 247Sports, new FSU running back coach David Johnson was the primary recruiter for the Volunteers when it secured Williamson’s commitment and of course was the reason FSU was able to get involved with the talented prospect so late in the recruiting process. Williamson is rated as a three-star recruit by 247Sports and is considered an athlete. He is ranked as the 48th best athlete in the country, the 24th best overall prospect in Tennessee and the 816th best overall prospect in the country, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
Despite reports from sources this morning that Williamson might indeed flip back to the Volunteers his signing with FSU is now official.
Williamson’s athletic ability is apparent on his highlight tape, where he lines up at wide receiver and as a safety/linebacker. He shows good but not great speed, is a strong runner with the ball in his hands and shows very good balance. As a wide receiver he displays nice hands and does a good job of turning upfield after the catch.
