Osovet's northeast ties factor in Savion Williams' recruitment

Tennessee offered JUCO defensive tackle Savion Williams June 21.

The 6-foot-4, 313-pound defensive lineman plays at Lackawanna C.C. in Scranton, Penn., a place that Tennessee analyst Joe Osovet is familiar with throughout his northeast ties coaching at ASA College and Nassau Community College.

Tennessee was the first SEC school to offer Williams and the defensive lineman could make a decision soon on his next destination.

Lackawanna C.C. head coach Mark Duda, who has known Osovet for years, discussed Williams with Vols Wire.

“He is a specimen of a kid,” Duda said of Williams. “He will be playing a five-technique at tackle this year for us, but he is really versatile on the line of scrimmage and a powerful kid.”

Lackawanna C.C. runs a 3-4 defense and Williams will play a three-technique at times.

“He is a big, dominant guy,” Duda said. “He can rush the passer, too. Savion will be a good addition for whoever gets him.”

Williams is going through the process of determining the best fit for him after his final season in the JUCO ranks and Tennessee is well in the mix. The lineman will come out in May and will not enroll early.

“He has came a long way and is a raw kid, a powerful guy and a heck of a prospect with a huge upside,” Duda said. “He is going to be a tremendous football player and is making decisions now in where he is going to go before we start the season.”
