Top 2016 recruit de-commits from UW

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Badgers may have lost their highest-rated prospect in the 2016 recruiting class. Antonio Williams has de-committed from Wisconsin. 

Williams announced the decision to re-open his recruitment on Twitter on Wednesday, saying in part:

"I wouldn't feel like an honest individual if I did not do this and took a visit to another school. I hope that all will respect my decision as I do what is best for me and my family."

According to multiple reports, Williams plans on taking an unofficial visit to Ohio State this weekend. 

This news is especially surprising, considering Williams tweeted about wanting cheese curds using the hashtag "On Wisconsin" and posted an On Wisconsin picture to his Instagram less than two weeks ago. 

Williams was the first member of the 2016 class when he committed to the UW in December. He played a major role in recruiting other players to join him in Madison.
