Back in May, Georgia lost a key cog in their well-oiled recruiting machine, though most fans may not have even realized it. After all, it's not often graduate assistants make drastic impacts on football teams.
Nick Williams was not your average graduate assistant for Georgia.
Williams, a former defensive back at Georgia, was in Athens as a graduate assistant helping out with the outside linebackers, though he was tasked with some of the most difficult recruitments during his time. Now, he's in College Station working for Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M.
Williams played a massive role in the landing of players like Lewis Cine, Kelee Ringo, and in 2021 they sent him after the biggest fish of them all, Korey Foreman.
Well, in 2022, Williams had already made his impact on Georgia's class prior to his departure to Texas A&M.
Defensive tackle Bear Alexander was a member of Georgia's 2022 class in part because of Nick Williams, as was Deyon "Smoke" Bouie. Both were in College Station over the last week for visits prior to announcing they would be decommitting from Georgia.
Coincidence? Probably not.
Williams developed relationships with both Alexander and Bouie and those relationships that he cultivated while in Athens have placed Texas A&M firmly at the top of the recruitments for both Alexander and Bouie.
