UNC Football Recruiting: Wisconsin Badgers offer Bryson Allen-Williams


Three-star outside linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams is one of the top 40 rated recruits in the state of Georgia, and he continues to rack up major offers. His most recent one comes from the Wisconsin Badgers, and the high-end three-star prospect now has offers from Washington, Wisconsin, Georgia, Boise State, Tennessee, N.C. State, UNC, Penn State, Georgia Tech, USC, UCLA, Oregon, Missouri, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Utah, South Carolina, Clemson, Alabama, and Florida.

That’s a ridiculously huge list of major offers for Allen-Williams, and he is already rated by 247Sports as a four-star prospect. One of the top 30 OLBs around, Allen-Williams’s favorite is the South Carolina Gamecocks. He’s also high on the North Carolina Tar Heels, the UCLA Bruins, the USC Trojans, the recently offered Georgia Bulldogs, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, the Alabama Crimson Tide, and the Florida Gators.

The 6’3″, 225 pound Cedar Grove standout notched just under 100 tackles as a junior and made some huge plays with 22 tackles for loss and 16 sacks. Bryson Allen-Williams has lit up high school football in the state of Georgia, and he received a coveted offer from the Bulldogs on National Signing Day. Although the Badgers are not expected to be major players in his recruitment, UW’s offer is also a significant one.

Allen-Williams is close on the UNC radar, and I’m surprised that more recruiting sites aren’t regarding him as a top 250 prospect. 247 has him just outside of their top 200, and the enormous amount of major offers that he has received is a testament to his talent. North Carolina has a three-star OLB already committed to the program in the 2014 class in solid Charlotte prospect Robert Dinkins, but Allen-Williams is the second-best OLB prospect of the eight with offers from UNC. Their best? The Tar Heels top target at the position, Columbia’s Christian Miller, who is rated as a top 100 prospect overall and is a Gators lean.
