Indiana head football coach Tom Allen continues to have success on the recruiting trail, and IU may have never had a bigger commitment than this.
Class of 2020 wide receiver Rashawn William announced his verbal commitment to IU on Monday via Twitter:

The Detroit native is ranked the 166th best player overall in the 2020 class according to the 247Sports Composite. That ranking is believed to be the highest for an IU commit during the recruiting service rankings era, a mark that was previously held by 2019 signee Sampson James.
Williams is the No. 33 wide receiver nationally and the No. 3 player in Michigan according to that same service.
247 Sports’ Allen Trieu gave this assessment of the 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds Williams:
“Just at or below the average height for a wide receiver. Has a strong build with a good muscle base. Will be physically ready to compete when he steps on a college campus. Very physical, strong player. Tough for defenders to re-route because of that. Excellent blocker who gives top effort and plays with tenacity. Strength and hand-eye coordination allow him to excel in contested situations. Very reliable hands. Has flashed change of direction and ability after the catch. Biggest area for improvement is straight-line speed. Projects to be a reliable, productive receiver who is likely to play outside but has the tools to move into the slot also. Should be a great red-zone weapon because of ball skills and physicality. Very competitive player who will find a way to make a difference.”
Williams chose IU over a long list of offers that included Michigan, Michigan State and Purdue.

Williams is the third player to commit to Indiana’s 2020 class.
