Notre Dame Football Recruiting: 4- Star WR Cam Williams commits to the Irish

WIDE RECEIVERS ARE REAL AND THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are lined up for a ton of good news over the next 7 days, and the first headliner is printed and ready for the newsstand. 2024 4-Star wide receiver, Cam Williams gave his public commitment to Notre Dame live on CBS Sports HQ.

The Glen Ellyn, Illinois, native chose the Irish over his other finalists; the Michigan Wolverines, Cincinnati Bearcats, and Iowa Hawkeyes. He also holds a large handful of other major offers from across the country.

A quick evaluation from II’s Kevin Sinclair:

I’m a big fan of this wide receiver and I believe he’ll only improve as he adds strength over the next few years. In fact, I’m willing to wager he’ll rise into the Top 100 over time. Williams is super light on his feet, swift off the snap with rapid footwork in his routes.

With those outstanding feet, Williams has stop-on-a-dime ability which helps create separation. And he’s a vertical threat due in part to his quickness off the snap. He’s quite lean currently. And while that’s not an uncommon characteristic at his position, once he stacks on more strength, his game should really take off.

The commitment by Williams is the fifth for the Irish in the 2024 cycle. It’s a class that is currently ranked #1 according to the 247 Team Composite, and will continue to get better and better with Alpha C.J. Carr helping with the recruiting effort.

Cam Williams is everything that the Irish want and need at wide receiver right now. Because of poor recruiting at the position in terms of numbers with the upperclassmen, Notre Dame has playing time to sell — and elite prospects like Cam Williams can see the opportunity.

This is another huge win for the Irish on the recruiting trail — and ANOTHER hard dunk on Michigan (which should always be celebrated). The class is off to a great start, and Williams represents a player that the Irish should almost always win with as he hails from Illinois and is one of the best in the nation. Things are really good right now.
