The Ole Miss Rebels picked up a big recruit this week to add to their defensive backfield. Demarko Williams – out of Westlake (Atlanta, Geo.) High School – committed to the Rebels over interest from the likes of South Carolina, Florida State and Oregon.

The 5-foot-10, 175 pound CB is a class of 2021 prospect and he is ranked as a 3-star player with plenty of upside to his game.
Williams is the No. 656 player nationally and the No. 49 CB in the class according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings He is also the No. 52 player in the state of Georgia. Any time that Ole Miss can pluck a player out from under the noses of schools that have been competing for national championships in the last decade it is a big deal and for Williams it seems like the level of comfort he found with the coaching staff at the school was the key factor in his decision to pledge to play in Oxford.
Williams is an athletic player that could fill a variety of roles for the Rebels defensively. He has the size and speed to be effective as a corner on the boundary against top end wideouts, while also having the quick hips and change of direction skills needed to find his way onto the field inside in nickel packages.
These highlights show Williams being an effective defender who knows when to break onto the ball to make a play. He is a big hitter, a player who will really make the WR know he is there early in games as he has the technique to bring down bigger players. He is also a player capable of making the opposition pay after a turnover, eating up yards on the returns as he shows great vision and awareness to flip the field in the favor of his team.
