Williams played defensive end in high school but has been recruited as an outside linebacker. In his senior year at Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, he recorded 40 tackles, eight sacks and four fumble recoveries.

The four-star recruit was the first of 90 high school players to be named to the Army All-American Bowl and has earned many other honors as well, including being named the 2010 Gatorade New York player of the year and New York Coaches state and city player of the year.

The No. 26 recruit in the ESPNU 150, Williams selected Notre Dame over dozens of offers, including those from Oregon, Ohio State, Florida and USC. He chose to enroll early and is now taking classes at Notre Dame.
