2016 Missouri football recruiting: Rock Bridge DE Tre Williams commits to Tigers

New, 10 comments

Tre Williams becomes Missouri's fifth known commitment for 2016, joining Ca'Ron Baham, Trystan Castillo, and JUCOs Nate Strong and Greg Taylor.

Rock Bridge defensive end Tre Williams, recently given a four-star designation by Rivals.com, committed to Missouri earlier today. He is Mizzou's fifth known commitment (and thanks to coaches and their Twitter code, commitments are pretty much immediately "known" by all) and the second Rivals four-star commit, joining former East St. Louis RB Nate Strong.

We were actually talking about Williams just this morning. He had a strong showing at Mizzou's team camp on Thursday, and all accounts were that it was only a matter of time until he committed to his home town school. He has now done so.

Here are Williams' Hudl highlights (again).

He is pretty much exactly what we've come to expect from Mizzou prospects -- a little bit raw and a lot athletic. He doesn't always show perfect form when he gets to the quarterback, but he gets to the quarterback a lot, he seems to diagnose plays rather quickly, and he seems to get up to full-speed in a hurry.

At 6'5, 220, Williams obviously has a little bit of weight to put on, but his frame suggests that won't be much of a problem.

Williams went from sleeper to breakout star pretty quickly in the recruiting season, and he is now committed to playing in the black and gold. WELCOME, TRE.
