Miami Hurricanes: Markeith Willams adds to loaded safety position

The Miami Hurricanes got another big commitment at the safety position on Wednesday night. 2022 four-star safety Markeith Williams committed to the program.


Williams is the 17th overall safety in the 2022 class, and the 28th overall player in his class from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

In addition to Miami, he was being pursued heavily by Ohio State and Alabama. He was recruited to the Hurricanes by Ishmael Aristide and Travaris Robinson.

What can he bring to the table?

Measuring in at six-foot-one, 170 pounds, Williams has a little bit of everything in terms of a skill set. It sounds cliché to say, but quite frankly it’s true. He has tremendous length, and plays well on the outside. As soon as the ball is thrown, he is able to track it and go up and get it. Those coverage skills will come in handy, especially considering the level of quarterback talent in the ACC.

In addition to his coverage skills, he is also able to disrupt plays and make tackles if need be. He is very aggressive as soon as he finds the football, and can come down quickly and make a play. This could certainly help with the run defense of the Miami Hurricanes. Athleticism is key at the safety position, especially in this day and age.

With this commitment, the 2022 Miami Hurricanes recruiting class is shaping up nicely. The class itself ranks 47th overall nationally, and 10th overall in the ACC per the 247Sports Team Rankings.

After the 2022 class was slow to develop initially, the Miami Hurricanes have done a good job in landing  several impact recruits for the class. Furthermore, this commitment just goes to show that they know how to recruit the safety position. They are absolutely loaded in this area, and it has become a trademark of theirs in recruiting. Hopefully, the good times will continue to roll.
