There was only one prospect the Wisconsin Badgers liked enough to reportedly offer during the final dead period before National Signing Day. After a visit on what will likely be one of the coldest weekends of the year, the Badgers were able to land themselves a quality cornerback when three-star prospect from Grand Prairie, Texas, Caesar Williams made his commitment to the Badgers official on Tuesday.
Listed at 6'1, 178 pounds, Williams has the frame to take full advantage of his athleticism and leaping ability. He also closes well on routes and when he needs to fill against the run and make the tackle. The Hudl profile shown above features highlights against the top level of prospects in the talent-rich state of Texas, so quality of competition is no question here.
Williams had a final three that included SMU and Indiana, though a late offer from Kansas State was able to get them a visit this past weekend. But after visiting Manhattan, Williams was sure enough about the Badgers that he officially made a silent commitment that went public just minutes after Deron Harrell joined the class.
Williams joins Harrell, Dontye Carriere-Williams and Ke'Shan Pennamon to fill out the class of 2016 at cornerback. Outside of Southlake, Texas, wide receiver prospect Lil'Jordan Humphrey, the Badgers are not currently looking at adding any more scholarships for the class.
