Bryson Allen-Williams

Sophomore

Linebacker

6'1"/233  lbs.

Ellenwood, GA

Recruitment:

Allen-Williams was a sought-after commodity in the class of 2014, as he was ranked as the eighth best linebacker and the sixth best overall player in the state of Georgia, while fielding 34 offers from across the nation.

College Career:

In Allen-Williams' freshman campaign, he began the season as a linebacker in the 3-4 defense but was later moved to defensive end as the season progressed. He started in two games while appearing in 12, amassing 27 tackles and 2.5 tackles for a loss.

2015 Outlook:

Allen-Williams looks to be an impact-player in the Gamecocks' 2015 defense. His ability to rush the passer is apparent and can make up for any shortcomings he may still have in coverage. With a good blend of size, strength, and speed, Allen-Williams has the opportunity to blossom into an anchor defensively that the Gamecocks sorely lacked last season.

Trivia:

Allen-Williams, as previously stated, was pursued by a plethora of teams coming out of high school. Including South Carolina, how many SEC teams made him offers?
