Florida OT Lamar Williams sets late summer commitment date

Head coach Mike Locksley and his staff will welcome their next batch of official visitors to campus beginning Thursday as Maryland looks to build on their current nine-man recruiting class in the 2025 cycle, but they’ll hope for good news from one target who made their way to campus last weekend.

Gadsden County (FL) three-star offensive tackle Lamar Williams is set to make his final decision after posting on X/Twitter that he has set his commitment date for his birthday, August 7, with Maryland in the top group.

Maryland was among the first schools to reach out to the 6-foot-5, 271-pound lineman when contact to 2025 recruits first began, while last weekend’s official visit marked Williams’ first trip to campus. Assistants Brian Williams and Brian Braswell have led the Terps’ pursuit while Florida native, Marcus Dumervil, filled in as Williams’ official visit host.

“I loved it. The coaches were showing me love and they made it clear I’m a big priority for them,” Williams told IBG about his official visit. “I was with coach Bras and coach Marcus [Thomas] and the players, [Marcus] Dumervil. [Braswell] is a good coach. He’s been wanting me to get up here show me everything so it was good getting a chance to see everything he’s talking about.”

Williams placed Maryland in his top group alongside Florida State and UCF with no other visits set coming out of last weekend. The three-star lineman initially committed to in-state Miami (FL) back in early February before reopening his recruitment last month as Maryland remained in the mix throughout.

Maryland enters this weekend with nine commitments in the fold and already has a pair of offensive line commitments in the fold in St. Joseph’s Prep (PA) IOL Kahlil Stewart and Lakeland (FL) OT Ben Beymer.

Lamar Williams is rated a three-star prospect and an 87 overall by On3, checking in as the 88th-best prospect in Florida and the nation’s 66th-best offensive tackle. As a junior, Williams started as Gadsden County’s starting right tackle where he was named an all-region second-team selection.
