Graduating Class: 2017

Position: OF

School: Providence Catholic

Height: 6-1

The Outlook: Williams recently moved to Illinois from Oklahoma. He is a raw athlete who spent the fall playing football for the Celtics. During the middle of the football season, Williams attended the Unsigned Senior Showcase and was the top overall prospect from the event. Williams is one of the top runners in the state and has bat speed at the plate. He should provide some quality depth to the Celtic's lineup, as they attempt to win an unprecedented fourth straight class 4A baseball state title.
