Four-star Offensive Lineman Commits to Miami Over Florida State

Published

“U Know What Time It Is!” Mario Cristobal and the Miami Hurricanes Football program are back on the recruiting trail with a commitment for the class of 2025 to kick things off in February. This follows their highly successful Elite Prospect Day event last weekend, where the program hosted over 100 blue-chip prospects on campus.

Gadsden County four-star offensive tackle Lamar Williams made his commitment public on Friday night after a successful weekend visit to Miami’s campus. The Hurricanes had also stopped by his school during the week to see the 6-foot-7, 280-pound lineman.

Lamar Williams chose Miami over offers from Florida State, Texas A&M, West Virginia, and a host of 15 more scholarship offers from the Power Five level. Head coach Mario Cristobal and offensive line coach Alex Mirabal led the recruiting efforts for Williams. The Hurricanes had built a rapport with the prospect since June of 2023. It also didn’t hurt that Williams has connections to the South Florida area.

This commitment is a significant victory for Miami in the Tallahassee territory, where Williams resides in Havana, Florida, over the nearby Florida State Seminoles, who recently hosted Williams for a campus visit.

The Miami coaching staff holds Williams in high regard for his talent, body type, and the mix of high-end athleticism at the offensive tackle position they desire in their offensive line room for the future.

Williams now joins four-star quarterback Luke Nickel, four-star wide receiver Waden Charles, and four-star linebacker Elijah Melendez in Miami’s 2025 recruiting class. The class now ranks inside the top 20 according to the composite team rankings provided by recruiting industry services.
