Collegiate’s Krystian Williams preps for Virginia Tech football

RICHMOND, Va. (BVM) – Collegiate School senior football player Krystian Williams is an elite athlete, that is clear both on the gridiron and in the spring when he takes to the track. As a former long jump state champion and an all-state high jump performer as well, Williams has a bouncing ability that allows him to soar at the wide receiver position for the Cougars.

As a junior, Williams began grabbing the attention of scouts with his best football performance to date. During the campaign, Williams played both wide receiver and defensive back for the Cougars and recorded 26 catches for 604 yards and seven scores with three interceptions on the defensive side of the ball.

Williams’ performance earned him the attention of numerous coaches and media sites as he was selected as a Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association first-team all-state wide receiver and a second-team all-state defensive back as well as an honorable mention all-metro selection at both wide receiver and all-purpose player from the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Given his strong junior campaign, Williams started earning the attention of scouts earning his first Division I scholarship offer from in-state University of Virginia in October 2021. This was the start of a busy recruiting journey for Williams where he received 10 offers from DI programs including Boston College, Duke, Northwestern, Rutgers, Wake Forest and of course Virginia Tech, among others.

With a bevy of opportunities, the 6-foot-2, 170-pound star had the difficult task of narrowing down his options to one choice. After visiting a number of the programs, Williams ultimately decided to stay close to home, committing to the Hokies in July.

Williams will go to Virginia Tech as one of the top players in Virginia in the Class of 2023. He is ranked as a three-star recruit in 247Sports’ Composite Rankings, being listed as the No. 22 prospect in Virginia and one of the top wide receivers in the state.

Before Williams makes his way to Blacksburg, Virginia, expect him to put up strong senior campaigns both on the football field and the track. Given his all-state status in both sports a year ago, expectations are high for Williams as he wraps up his standout career at Collegiate.

After the way his career has grown each year, Williams should once again reach and even exceed those expectations. While it remains to be seen if track is also in the young man’s collegiate future, Williams will have plenty of opportunities to show he is one of the best players the Richmond area has to offer when he joins the Hokies next fall.
