Five-star recruit Ryan Williams, who committed to Alabama University in October 2022, has de-committed from the program. 

The Saraland wide receiver recently reclassified from the 2025 to 2024 recruiting class and ranks as the No. 19 overall and the No. 4 wide receiver, as per Rivals. 

During his three-year high school career, he rushed for 1,078 yards with 3,254 receiving yards and 47 touchdowns.

His notable accomplishments include earning the Mr. Football title and Gatorade Alabama Player of the Year twice.

Ryan initially intended to sign with the Crimson Tide on Feb 9, 2024. However, after the news of Nick Saban’s retirement broke out, the receiver changed his mind.

Who Is Ryan Williams Sr, Ryan Williams Dad? 

Ryan Williams’s dad, Ryan Williams Sr, shares his son’s enthusiasm for sports, particularly football.

Originally from Mobile, Alabama, he initially played in the B.C. Rain High School as a cornerback.

He then committed to play collegiate football at Auburn University as a defensive back in the late 2000s.

Further, it seems like his passion for football never took a professional turn in his career.

Nevertheless, Ryan might fulfill his father’s professional dream.

Although there aren’t many updates about his father’s personal and professional life, he undoubtedly deserves a handful of credit for Ryan’s success.

Growing up, the father-son duo regularly practiced and trained in their home backyard.

Acknowledging today’s success, his father once said, “Honestly, putting in all the work is now paying off. As a football lover, when you see a kid putting in the work, and he gets what he is supposed to get out of it is a win.”

Is Crimson Tide Losing Potential Prospects?

With Nick Saban, a head coach of Alabama football from 2007 to 2023, announcing his retirement, Alabama might lose its future potential players. 

There will be roster turnover for Crimson Tide on the current roster and in future signing classes.

As mentioned, the first to de-commit is Sanderson WR Ryan Williams, who did not officially sign with them.

In an interview with ESPN, Williams mentioned,

“I had no idea that Saban was retiring and found out about the news through Twitter.”

After this, he called Alabama coaches to confirm the news, and once informed, he decided to de-commit about an hour after the call.

Williams is considering Alabama’s primary rival, Auburn Tigers, for his future commitment. Hence, re-recruiting him might be the first task for Crimson’s new head coach.
