The Georgia Bulldogs are set to welcome some of the nation’s best players starting today, but they’ve already kicked off the weekend with a bang, as five-star tight end and Georgia commit Elyiss Williams shared with On3’s Hayes Fawcett that he is shutting down his recruitment.

Williams, who has been heavily courted by the likes of Miami and Florida State throughout his recruitment, is ranked as the nation’s No. 1 tight end by all four major recruiting services and is the nation’s No. 23 overall prospect in the On3 Industry Ranking.

A native of Folkston, Georgia and product of Camden County High School, Williams has been committed to the Bulldogs for over a year now, announcing his initial pledge in April of 2023.

He tells Fawcett he will take no other official visits. He had earlier planned to visit the Florida State Seminoles.

“I am locked in with Georgia,” Williams told On3’s Chad Simmons in early May. “I talk to Coach Todd Hartley on the daily, I talk to Coach Kirby Smart a lot and they are great guys at a great program. Coach Hartley develops tight ends at a rapid pace, Georgia uses their tight ends a lot and I am feeling good about Georgia. Georgia is the hometown school, the people are great, they develop players at my position and there is a lot there that I like.”

Elyiss Williams measures in at 6-foot-7, 235 pounds and is one of ten current Georgia commits for the Class of 2025. He is one of two tight end commits, joining four-star prospect Ethan Barbour.

On3 Scouting Report on Elyiss Williams

“Rare combination of athleticism and size for the tight end position. Stands in at nearly 6-foot-7 with crazy bounce and ability to play above the rim which stems from his dominance on the hardwood. Smooth mover in space that can win vertically up the seam with his top-end speed. Has the fluidity and looseness in his hips in order to win in intermediate routes as well. Physical and more than willing blocker at the line of scrimmage. Plays with tenacity and ferocity at the point of attack. Comfortable pass catcher but will need to get stronger catching the ball away from his frame more consistently. Has all the physical and athletic tools that offensive coaches covet at the position. Extremely high upside prospect.” – Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings, on Elyiss Williams
