After helping nail down one of the nation’s top 25 2017 recruiting classes, Nebraska assistant coach Keith Williams is getting some love.
On Friday afternoon, Williams, who is the Huskers’ wide receivers coach, was named to Rivals.com’s list of top 25 recruiters in 2017. Williams joins the list, which includes five other Big Ten coaches.
One of the best recruiters in 2017.

Williams’ mark on the 2017 recruiting class is undoubtedly the reason the Huskers have the 23rd overall recruiting class, according to 247Sports.
In Nebraska’s class of 2017, Williams was the man who swayed 4-star wide receivers Jaevon McQuitty, Tyjon Lindsey and 3-star wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson Jr. to commit and sign with the Huskers. Not only was he instrumental in buffing up Nebraska’s receiving corps, but he also made his mark in getting 3-star quarterback Tristian Gebbia to commit.
In terms of experience, Williams, who just finished his second year in Lincoln, Neb., also has a long successful recruiting resume, which includes stops at Tulane, Fresno State and his alma mater, San Diego State. According to Nebraska’s official website, Williams has coached eight wide receivers that went on to play professionally.
