Williams is a big, highly projectable righthander committed to East Carolina with some of the easiest velocity in the class. At 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds Williams will regularly throw in the low 90s and has hit 95 multiple times without showing much effort in his delivery. Some scouts expect him to reach triple digits some day, projecting his fastball to be an 80-grade pitch. The development of his curveball will dictate his ceiling, as the pitch currently lacks any real bite. This spring he allowed just two earned runs, while striking out 65 batters in 39.2 innings with a 0.53 WHIP.
