Coach Bobby Petrino continues to beef up his offensive line with the addition of 2019 FL OG Jamari Williams. Williams is a consensus 3 Star prospect out of Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

The 6’4 275 lbs Williams had offers from Mississippi State, NC State, Pitt, UK, Syracuse, and Purdue among others. Mike Summers was the primary recruiter for UofL according to 247 Sports.
Williams is a big time prospect; not sure why he isn’t a 4 Star prospect yet. He’s a very aggressive and agile young lineman; very physical at the point of attack and continues his physicality through to the end of the play.
Williams loves punishing defenders as most plays end with the defenders on their back. He even enjoys throwing them on the ground when pass blocking which is not typical when an OL is pass blocking. He has sweet feet and heavy hands!
Williams is listed as an OG, but played a lot of OT. Coach Petrino will use his versatility to find a home for Williams.
The young man finishes plays snap to whistle. Williams, like most young offensive lineman still needs to continue to hit the gym and work to strengthen his frame.
Williams domination at the line of scrimmage and his love planting defenders in the ground, even when pass blocking, is a lot like current incoming freshman Adonis Boone.
Bobby Petrino may red shirt him to build up his strength and technique, but Williams could possibly be a contributor as a freshman if need be. Regardless, UofL got a big, powerful OL that will be a good player with potential to be excellent.
