Sidney Williams could be deciding between Nebraska football and other programs sooner, rather than later.

That could be good news for a Husker coaching staff that has been focusing quite a bit of its attention on defensive players over the last few months. With Spring Practice in full swing for most of the country, it might be paramount for the Cornhuskers to find a way to get the Alabama defensive back to make a trip down to Lincoln. Perhaps they can even get him to come check out Memorial Stadium in all its glory during the Spring Game. That would mean not only that they got him to come see the program when it's at its most impressive, but he would have some much highly touted company.

Corner wants to make his pick

Williams recently talked to Rivals about his plans to decide where he is going to go play his college ball. While he hasn't made up his mind just yet, he did say that he wants to have the process over by the summer. As is the case with most other players of his caliber, he doesn't want to have to spend his senior season worrying about where he will be the following fall.

The Nebraska football team has had a rather slow spring so far on the commitment front. Scott Frost and company got off to a much faster start in 2018 and they are most likely looking for a way to get that jump-started this time around. Getting the Alabama cornerback onto campus to see the Spring Game, alongside some other big prospects could be the jumpstart the group is looking for.

At the very least, it might put them back into play for a prospect that is seen to be leaning towards an in-state school.

Auburn is the team to beat for Nebraska football

The schools that have offered Williams are an interesting mix. The 3-star prospect, who is considered the 22nd best player in the state of Alabama by 247Sports has several superpowers coming after him.

He's also got schools like Kansas and even Alcorn State thinking they might have a shot. He's the 32nd ranked corner in the 2020 class. It doesn't seem likely that he will indeed be heading to Kansas or Alcorn State.

Not when he also has offers from Auburn, and Georgia, as well as LSU, Tennessee and of course, the Cornhuskers.

In the past, going after a player that had such deep ties and deep interest from schools in the SEC would have meant a sure loss in the recruiting wars. Frost and his group have allowed Nebraska football to stay in the hunt thanks to the relationships they fostered at UCF. That means if they can indeed get Sidney Williams on campus, they might be able to find a way to get him to pull the trigger for the Huskers this summer.
