Williams is heavily on the radar for Nebraska football.
Could another commitment be on the way for Nebraska football? It is certainly looking like it, and it may come from a name you don’t expect. This particular player comes from an area that has been on Nebraska’s radar as of late.
Cornerback Malik Williams was a teammate of new Nebraska commitment Gabe Ervin. Now, he may be coming into Lincoln. Coupled with the fact that a 247Sports Crystal Ball was listed in his favor recently, Williams says he hears from the program frequently.

I like what Williams brings to the table. Although he is not a taller corner, he has a tremendous amount of speed. That is something that is extremely beneficial in today’s game of football. Especially in the Big Ten, where potent passing offenses run rampant, you certainly need to have corners that can keep up with the receivers.
He could also be beneficial on kick return. In the highlights I saw, he weaved his way through defenders, putting his team in tremendous offensive field position.
Now, he could be bringing those talents to Lincoln. I personally would love for him to come here. He would be another athletic playmaker that the Nebraska football defense could use. With the luck that Nebraska football has had in recruiting over the past couple of weeks, it would be nice to add to it. The type of speed he has would certainly benefit the program. It appears the coaches think so too. In an article from Parker Gabriel, Williams says that Travis Fisher contacts him frequently.
“I actually just got off the phone with (NU secondary coach Travis) Fisher like 5 or 10 minutes ago,” Williams said Wednesday.
“Nebraska’s been hitting me up the most and I talk to the coaches, like, every day,” Williams said. “Coach Fisher, he’s a laid back guy. He likes to talk a lot, which I like because I like to talk a lot as well. He’s real cool. … He tells me a lot about the league and how it goes and how I can make it there.”
Fisher has really shown to be a strong recruiter over the past couple of months. From the hall on Early Signing Day to now, he has shown to be someone that recruits trust and want to play for. That is certainly a great asset for Nebraska football moving forward. It’s great to see that he has additional value off the field as well.
Hopefully, Williams can join his former teammate in Lincoln. Nebraska has been on a roll recruiting-wise, and it doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon.
