Florida State lands commitment from blue-chip 2024 edge defender
Florida State has landed a commitment from North Palm Beach (Fla.) Benjamin School product Amaree Williams.
Williams is a 6-foot-4, 215-pound edge defender in the 2024 class. According to Noles247, Williams has been a silent commit for more than a month after he signed a letter of intent with the school during December’s Early Signing Period. He’s a two-way, multi-sport star who reclassified from the 2025 class to the 2024 class back in December.

Williams is ranked as the No. 6 athlete in the 2024 class. He’s the No. 27 prospect from the state of Florida and the No. 207 overall prospect. His pedigree as an athlete is outstanding.
The son of former NFL running back Moe Williams, the younger Williams competed in track and field events in addition to football for The Benjamin School. As a sophomore, he placed fifth in the high jump and 12th in the 100-meter dash at the FHSAA 1A state meet. He was also a member of a 4×100 relay team that placed third.
During the 2023 football season, he saw snaps on both sides of the football and finished with 34 tackles, eight tackles for loss, four sacks, and an interception as well as 16 receptions for 424 yards and seven touchdowns on offense. As a sophomore in 2022, Williams produced 40 tackles, 14 TFLs, 15 sacks, two interceptions, and a forced fumble.
The expectation is that Williams will begin his career on the defensive side of the ball. His versatility should let the defensive staff move him around a bit, at least until he can fill into his frame and settle at one spot.
His addition bumps the FSU signing class up to 23 known high school pledges. You can see Williams’ highlight tape below, via Hudl:
