The Hawaii football team now has two commitments for the 2021 class with Southlake Carroll High School defensive back Cinque Williams picking the Rainbow Warriors. Williams announced his decision on Thursday.
Williams was not as well-known of a prospect compared to some others for one key reason – he was denied his junior season due to a local high school transfer ruling.
Many schools were intrigued by Williams based on his sophomore highlights at prior high school Mansfield Legacy HS, though Hawaii was the first school to go all-in by recruiting him without updated film to review.
Of his game on the field, Williams said, I know that I can’t be outworked. A lot of people can say that, but I can show that I can’t be outworked. I’m a good leader and I can talk for my teammates, I’m a team captain for my team now already.
The attributes in my game are that I’m a really good tackler, I can play zone, I can blitz. I was moved to corner for my team this year because we were low on depth, so I’m very versatile.”
Both of Hawaii’s first two commitments of the 2021 class now come from Texas, where new UH Head Coach Todd Graham also added several 2020 commitments in his old stomping grounds.
Williams joins DQ James, a three-star running back from Lancaster. The two even crossed paths during their high school careers.
I played against him my freshman year,” Williams said. I made a few tackles on him, I think. One time he came close to the pylon and I actually hit him pretty hard, I remember that They are going to be getting some Texas boys, some dogs for sure. Texas is the best football you can play.
