Missouri has received a commitment from Sidney Williams, a former Florida State safety and three-star prospect from Vigor (Ala.). Williams announced his decision Saturday evening and joins former Ole Miss wide receiver Dannis Jackson and former Arizona State defensive end Joe Moore as players to commit to the Tigers Saturday.
Williams entered the transfer portal after a redshirt sophomore season that saw him rack up 12 tackles in 11 games.
In three seasons in Tallahassee, Williams totaled 66 tackles, four pass breakups, an interception and a fumble recovery. He will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Tigers–although he technically also has a redshirt left.
Williams has family ties to the Tigers: He is starting cornerback Kris Abrams-Draine’s cousin. He will join a safety group that retained both of its deep safeties in Jaylon Carlies and Joseph Charleston. The team also has Daylan Carnell to replace Martez Manuel at the STAR position. Mizzou also added four-star Cardinal Ritter safety Marvin Burks during the early signing period.
