Florida State pulls off major coup with Hykeem Williams commitment
Tallahassee, Florida - In an emotional commitment live on CBS Sports HQ, five-star wide receiver Hykeem Williams has decided to stay home and play for the Florida State Seminoles as a member of its 2023 recruiting class.
He was one of the top receivers in the nation last season, posting 40 catches for 750 yards and 11 touchdowns, all while earning a Sun Sentinel All-Broward 5A-1A first-team selection on offense.
A star on the basketball court, he was a rotational player as a freshman for the Stranahan High school program that won the state title.
Averaging a double-double for much of junior season, the 6-foot-4 multiport athlete helped his team capture a district title with a game-winning basket during the title game, and a state title after achieving back-to-back double-doubles in the Final Four tournament.
The sunshine state wideout chose the Seminoles over finalist, Texas A&M, Pitt, Miami, Georgia, and Alabama.
Currently the fifth-best overall player in the state of Florida and the fourth-best receiver in the nation, Williams is the only five-star pledge in Florida State's 2023 recruiting class.
