J’ven Williams Enrolling Early at Penn State

J’ven Williams plans to follow the path of fellow Class of 2023 offensive line recruit Alex Birchmeier and enroll early at Penn State, he told 247Sports.

Williams is a 6-foot-5, 300-pound guard out of Wyomissing High School near Reading. He’s the the No. 1 recruit in Pennsylvania, and nationally, he’s the number five offensive tackle and the No. 44 player in the country according to 247Sports.

Williams will look to get a head start in his development by adjusting to being a student-athlete at the collegiate level.

Williams enrolling early means that he won’t be able to defend his PIAA Class 2A discuss and shot put titles. As a junior, he set a new state record of 66 feet, 8 inches in the shot put.

On the football field, 247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn raved about Williams’s technique, length, body control and speed which allows him to easily pull off to the second level in the running game. Williams is also elite in pass protection because he can pop up quickly and sit at his base. Dohn also likes his assertiveness to initiate the punch on defensive linemen.

Williams and Birchmeier are the only two Class of 2023 recruits that have confirmed that they will be confirming early to Penn State.
