Kole Williams is a class of 2021 linebacker for Nansemond River High School in Suffolk, VA. Kole has been selected as a Gridiron Football Diamond In The Rough because I feel that he will excel at the next level. Kole has a 3.1 GPA. He is 6 ft and weights 215 lbs. I like Kole because he plays with high motor, hard hitter, reads the plays well, good speed, and has decent hip flexors. Kole at times tends to overrun plays, but has good speed and awareness to compensate. Kole has all the tools to become an élite Linebacker.
