National Signing Day, Syracuse Recruiting: Rodney Williams Plans To "Make A Pretty Good Hit"

Rodney Williams represents New Jersey in this year's class.

Stat Me: The 5'10", 185 lb Williams will play safety at Syracuse, but he did pretty much everything on both sides of the ball for Cherry Hill HS West. He averaged around three total touchdowns per game on offense. Williams has been clocked at a 4.5 40 yard dash.

Seein' Stars: Scout - 3*, Rivals - 2*, 247 - 2*, ESPN - 3*

Who's Crying?: Buffalo, Temple

Money Quote: From Syracuse.com:

"(Shafer) said that I had quick feet and I opened my hips really well," Williams said. "I had good hand-eye coordination and good ball skills. So once he saw me play and move around, he knew that I was a guy he wanted and he liked my size and he thinks I can make a pretty good hit."

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: Tim Daoust, with an assist from Fred Reed.

Fun Fact: Williams is also a 1000 point scorer in high school for basketball.
