Williams is an interesting two-way player who most teams prefer as a hitter because of his extremely loose hands and average raw power at the plate, as well as his plus arm in the outfield. A Florida International commit, Williams is still raw at the plate, but his bat speed and the looseness of his swing have scouts and crosscheckers alike excited for his future potential. Most of his power is of the doubles variety presently, although he has hit several home runs to right-center, which helps when projecting his power in the future. An average runner, Williams profiles best as a corner outfielder, where his arm is strong enough to play in right field. Evaluators are mixed on his potential on the mound, with some scouts giving him a fringe-average fastball grade with a promising slider that cuts in on lefthanded hitters. Others say Williams' fastball is poor with a fringe-average delivery and strike-throwing ability.
