Williams is just the latest prospect added to the Bulls' short, but talented list of prospects for their 2016 class. Williams is ranked as the fifth three-star prospect for Buffalo as they continue to stockpile talented recruits for the near future. The 6-foot-1 205 pound linebacker will join fellow 2016 linebacker commit Hosea McMullen in efforts to help solidify the Bulls' defense for the upcoming future. Buffalo could use some help in the rushing defense as they were ranked in the middle of the MAC by allowing 175 yards on the ground per game to their opponents in 2014.
Tyreek Williams thrived at Timber Creek High School, where he was a nightmare in the backfield for opposing offenses. Williams' ability to stuff running backs is what caught the eye of numerous scouts and will be needed during his time at Buffalo.
