It' the final weekend of the 2014 college football recruiting period and UCF will have a key target on campus Saturday in Camden County (Ga.) safety Chris Williams, an Alabama commit who many think is already planning to flip his pledge to the Knights. Williams, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound defensive back who also played tailback and receiver at Camden, is a gifted basketball player, as well, and his visit will be cut short by a day with him playing in a basketball game Friday night. Camden coach Welton Coffey said UCF has a good shot to lure Williams, but did not go so far as to make a prediction, saying Alabama has also been good to Williams throughout the process. "That's with Chris and his family, of course, but there are a lot of things that are going on in the process and we just want to make sure that he's got all of his bases covered," Coffey said. "Alabama has been very good to Chris and there is no question about that. A top university like that, it's just wonderful to even be able to be recruited by a place like Alabama, as well as Central Florida." Williams is one of two targets on campus as the Knights look to finalize their 2014 class. Should UCF land Chris Nelson of Lakeland Victory Christian and Williams, it would bring the class number to 18 commitments. Coffey said Williams did a lot of everything for the Wildcats, playing running back and receiver on offense, as well as corner and safety on defense. "He's definitely a play maker and there is no question about that," Coffey said. "There are certain things that are just God-given ability; things coaches simply cannot claim. They're just born with it. "He's phenomenal as far as his running ability and he's always in the right place at the right time. He has great return ability, as far as kickoffs and punts. Things just seem to happen when Chris is on the field. "There are a number of things the young man can do. Who knows, by the time he gets on a college campus, just like a lot of kids, what his actual talent level will gravitate to as far as position."
