The Recruiting Guy:
Gentry Williams names Arkansas one of his top 6 schools
2022 athlete Gentry Williams.
Arkansas has made the top 6 for ESPN top 25 prospect Gentry Williams.
Williams, 6-0, 170 pounds, of Tulsa Washington, announced Arkansas, Oklahoma, LSU, Missouri, Southern Cal and Florida as his top schools.
His relationship with Razorbacks cornerbacks coach Sam Carter helped place Arkansas on his list.
“He talks to me about football, but he talks to me about being a great man,” Williams said in an earlier interview. “We’ll talk about faith, we’ll talk about family, everything other than football. That’s what really helps me with Coach Carter and our relationship.”
He and his teammate Keuan Parker, a Razorbacks cornerback signee, visited Fayetteville on March 7, the last day Arkansas coaches hosted prospects before the NCAA enforced a dead period because of the covid-19 pandemic.
ESPN rates Williams a 4-star prospect, the No. 2 athlete and No. 23 overall recruit for the 2022 class. He is the No. 2 prospect in Oklahoma.
