I can confirm the #Gophers have flipped 2021 Kentucky LB commit and Ohio native Devon Williams (@devwilliamsss).— Ryan Burns (@RyanBurnsMN) April 17, 2020
Minnesota DC @JoeS_Rossi offered back in January of 2019, and he and the staff were able to flip Williams to Maroon and Gold today.

The Dublin Coffman (OH) product, who measures in at 6-1 and 215 pounds, is ranked as the nation’s No. 40 outside linebacker by 247 Sports. He also held offers from the Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Arkansas Razorbacks and West Virginia Mountaineers. 247 also ranks him as the No. 17 prospect from Ohio in 2021.
Being that Williams is an Ohio product, it’s a surprise to see Kentucky and recruiting ace Vince Marrow lose a recruit from the Buckeye State. Williams also attends the same high school as four-star athlete Michael Drennen, who signed with the Wildcats in the Class of 2020.
