This weekend, 2022 TE/ATH Price Williams Jr. was one of many important targets that visited Blacksburg. Despite his youth, he says Virginia Tech has already made a good impression on him.
"It was amazing," Williams said of his visit. "Enjoyed every bit of it."
Like many other recruits who visited this weekend, Williams said he enjoyed taking in the Hokies' basketball game against Florida State. One takeaway he gained from that was the students' support for one another.
"All the students at the school, regardless of whether they're athletes or not, support each other," Williams said.
In addition, he said he was able to have lunch with many of the coaches and recruits and even spend some additional time with head coach Justin Fuente. That conversation with Fuente was a highlight for Williams.
"It was great," Williams said of their conversation. "I really appreciated him spending time to talk with me."
Williams added that the Virginia Tech coaches spent more time talking with him than coaches at other schools he has visited. That stood out to him in a positive way.
Fuente was far from the only coach who spent time with Williams on his visit. Williams said he got to spend an extended amount of time with special teams and tight ends coach James Shibest. During that time, he got a good idea for how he could be utilized in VT's offense.
"I really got a feel for how Virginia Tech uses their tight ends," Williams said.
Williams has already received offers from Virginia, Vanderbilt, and Virginia Tech, and many other schools have voiced their interest. As exciting as that is, he is making sure to keep things in perspective.
"I'm young, and I'm still trying to figure out what I want in a school," Williams said. "I liked everything I saw and experienced at Virginia Tech," he added.
At this point, Williams' recruitment is still very much open. With that said, he made it clear that the Hokies have left a great early impression.
"I already had very high views of Virginia Tech," Williams said. "This visit did no more than better my view."
