Hykeem Williams is racking up the honors, the Rutgers football recruit getting some pretty big recognition for his standout play on the basketball court.
The Stranahan (Ft. Lauderdale) athlete was just named third-team all-state, capping off an impressive season for the four-star football recruit. The honor also underscores his elite athleticism.
Ranked the No. 36 player in the nation, Williams is the fifth-best wide receiver in the nation and the ninth-best player in Florida according to Rivals.
As for the basketball side of things, Williams led Stranahan in scoring with 12.2 points per game (355 total points on the season) as well as 10.2 rebounds per game (299 total rebounds on the season). He also averaged .6 blocks per game, third-best on the team.

Williams has a strong national offer list that includes Ohio State, Michigan and Alabama among others. He recently took a visit to Georgia, a program many consider to be the front-runner for his services.
Last month, Williams announced that he will be taking an official visit to Pittsburgh. His primary recruiter at the ACC program is wide receivers coach Tiquan Underwood, who recruited him last year while holding the same position at Rutgers.
