J’ven Williams, a Class of 2023 offensive lineman from Wyomissing High School near Reading, Pennsylvania, and a Penn State commit, is now a five-star prospect, according to 247Sports.
In the updated 247Sports latest recruiting ranking rankings update, Williams (6-foot-4, 283 pounds) is the number one player in Pennsylvania, the number four offensive tackle, and the No. 24 player nationally in the class of 2023.
Williams committed to Penn State on Feb. 5, 2022, and plans on signing to Penn State later this month and enrolling in the school in the spring.
Williams is a high-level athlete with the body control, length, and technique to become an impact player at a power five school. Williams has the speed and athleticism to get in front of ball carriers and finish blocks when pulling out in space. He also consistently puts his hand under opposing pass rushers’ pads and gets leverage in pass protection.
Williams also competed in the shot put and discus and was a state champion at Wyomissing. As a junior, he won the state championship with throws in 66-7.75 in the shot put and 167.0 in the discus.
Williams is the highest-ranked recruit in the 2023 recruiting class and will join Alex Birchmeier and Anthony Donkoh in the offensive line room in the 2023 recruiting class.
