Call to the Hall (July 24, 2018)
Well put together, muscular frame at 5-foot-11 170 pounds. Williams, a RHH catcher, ran a 7.44 60. Offensively- Showed tremendous bat speed at the plate, quick hands with acceleration through the zone. Even, balanced stance with a slight leg kick. Explosive finish with line drive/pull side gap results. Exit velocity of 92 MPH off the tee but plays even better then that. Defensively- Behind the plate Williams gains ground with quick feet and transfer; arm holds well with carry and accuracy. Pop times ranged from 1.95-2.02 with a peak velocity of 77 MPH. Advanced defender with a high ceiling offensively. 
ENY All-Star Games (September 17, 2017)

Standing 5-foot-11, 170-pounds with an athletic appearance. Offensively- Very relaxed setup, wide stance, slight toe tap back for timing with front stride, little to no load. Hips drive forward, aggressive hands, compact and short to the ball, generates raw power to pull-side, barrel path is mostly level through contact with full finish, 84 MPH exit velocity on the day (up to 89 mph earlier in summer), fluid and repeatable, next-level bat and approach. Defensively-  Receives with confidence and large target. Transfer is clean on throws with short arm-action, slight hitch (needs to clean arm-action up a bit to help lower pop-time), throws were accurate with a pop-time ranging 1.98-2.01 with a 73 MPH arm on the day. Overall, we have seen Williams several times and each time we become more impressive. There's no doubt he's working hard at his game and his performances are shining because of that. Cleaning up the arm-action will help improve his pop-time and overall body strength will also aid in his development. Fun player to continue to watch grow.
Campus Series-Buffalo (July 5, 2017)
Williams stands in at 5-foot-11, 170-pounds with a strong athletic frame. Ran a 4.48 home to first. Offensively- Righty sets up square to the pitcher in a wide stance with his feet outside shoulder width. Shows a slight knee bend with an upright torso holding the bat above the back shoulder using little pre-pitch bat movement. On pitch, his trigger is a knee raise into the body to stride forward while his hands move back slightly into his hitting position. Utilizes good lower body rotation getting his hips cleared and using his whole-body frame throughout the process of the swing. Shows quick hands to the hitting zone with an upward lift barrel action throughout into a high two-handed finish. Demonstrated good plate coverage and line drive ability with potential power up the middle and to the pull side. Clean, fluid swing. Recorded an exit velocity of 89 MPH, a 2 MPH improvement from his previous best mark of 87 MPH set at the NY Games in 2017. Defensively- Frames pitches well keeping glove and body quiet. Good mechanics and footwork on throws down to second. Quick with his hands to get into the throwing motion with an appropriate catchers arm swing to throw downhill towards second. Athletic blocker with ability to get back up to his feet quickly. Solid defensive catcher. Recorded a positional arm velocity of 71 MPH and a pop time range of 2.01-2.04. Slight hitch in arm action that disrupts his continuous action. Overall a strong collegiate prospect in the 2019 grad class.
NY Games (June 25-27, 2017)
Sturdily-built catcher at 5-foot-11 and 170 lbs. Offensively - balanced approach at the plate, keeps bat on level plane through the zone, strong, quick hands with an exit velocity of 87 MPH; appropriate pre-pitch movement, repeatable motion, drives the ball to  middle third of the field; will generate more power with further lower body engagement. Defensively - stays low and balanced throughout the receiving process, smooth transfer to throwing hand, accurate arm with a POP time ranging from 2.03-2.11.
Preseason All-State (February 20, 2017)

Williams, a 2019 right-handed hitting catcher currently ranking as the 12th best catching prospect for the 2019 class, stands at 5-foot-10 and weighs 170 pounds, ran a 7.25 60, which was 0.15 quicker than the previous event. Offensively- Starts with a square lower half, with some shift of weight to the back side, hands in front of the back shoulder with the barrel of the bat wrapped a bit toward the pitcher almost perpendicular to the ground. Gets to the launch phase of the swing with a shift of weight to the back leg with a slight lift of the front foot which moderately strides forward while the hands are loaded with some slight movement staying well inside the back shoulder. During batting practice, Stays compact with good extension through the ball, registering an exit velocity of 86 MPH, (+2 MPH from October) on the day.   Defensively- Starts from an athletic square  primary stance, with the shoulders as well as the knees slightly turned up the first base line. Worked the glove from above the baseball, causing the glove to drop when receiving pitches. Getting the glove under the ball as well as outside the ball on pitches to the corners will help present the ball better. On throws to second base, has a quick transfer from the center of the body, chest height. The power position is a bit weak with the lead arm already well outside the body causing a horizontal pull from the power position to release. Throws were accurate but could show much more carry and velocity if the lead arm can stay tighter during release. Registered an arm velocity of 72 MPH, an increase of 6 MPH from October, along with an impressive 2.00 pop time, 0.04 better than October, which will continue to improve with some mechanical adjustments.

Last Chance Preview (October 30, 2016)

Williams, a 2019 right-handed hitting catcher, stands at 5-foot-10 and weighs 165 pounds, ran a 7.4 60. Offensively- Starts with a square slightly bend with the knees, hands in front of the back shoulder with the barrel of the bat wrapped a bit toward the pitcher. Initiates the swing with a shift of weight to the back side with a slight lift of the front foot which goes back down with no movement forward and hands are loaded straight back off the shoulder. Strong athletic that showed a strong ability to drive the ball with authority from the pull side to the middle of the field. Stays compact with good extension through the ball, registering an exit velocity of 84 MPH on the day.   Defensively- Starts with an athletic primary stance, with the shoulders as well as the knees slightly turned up the first base line. Receives the ball using a circular type of movement with the glove causing some unnecessary movement when the ball hits the glove. Needs to work more from the outside of the ball and underneath the ball on the lower third. Transfer the ball, on throws to second base, from the center of the body and in front of the chest. Throwing arm gets back in a strong position, but loses leverage when the lead arm does not reciprocate the movement of the throwing arm. Loses leg drive and rotation from the backside which causes throws to lose carry an velocity. Registered an arm velocity of 66 MPH, along with an impressive 2.04 pop time. Both of which will continue to improve for this young catcher, once adjustments are made.
