The Notre Dame football coaching staff has been out on the road over the last week or so, turning up the heat on one prospect after another. Sometimes, the trips were about locking down commits like Deuce Knight

Other times, it was all about turning up the heat on uncommitted prospects such as Georgia defensive back Devin Williams. The coaches are hoping they can land the 4-star Buford product and pull him away from some of the best programs in the country in the process.

One thing that’s become abundantly clear in the few months since the Notre Dame football season came to an end, it’s that Freeman doesn’t mess around when he wants to put the pressure on a prospect. 

Freeman and defensive backs coach Mike Mickens went to see Williams last week. This week, Mickens circle back around to Buford to check in on the 17th-ranked player in the state of Georgia. 

When looking at the visits from other schools that Williams has been getting in the last few weeks, it makes sense that the Notre Dame football coaches would make sure they were front of mind. The defensive back admitted some of the visits are starting to run together.

"The last few days have been crazy,” the 4-star corner recently told Irish Breakdown. "I have talked to a lot of schools and things are starting to run together.”

Despite some of those visits blurring into one, it’s clear that Notre Dame football coaches have found a way to stick in the high school star’s head.

"It was great to see the coaches,” Williams continued. "The fact that they came all the way to Buford, Georgia, just to see me meant a lot to me. I have had a chance to talk with Coach Freeman and Coach Mickens frequently. It is a blessing to be in the position I am”
