PROVO, Utah – BYU football continues to bolster its 2025 recruiting class.

The latest addition is offensive tackle Andrew Williams from Kirksville, Missouri. Not to be mistaken where BYU head coach Kalani Sitake played high school at Kirkwood, Missouri.

Williams is a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings and is the 993rd-ranked prospect nationally.

Andrew Williams commits to BYU

“100% committed to Brigham Young University!! Go Cougars,” wrote Williams on X.

Williams picked BYU over offers from the Cougars Big 12 peers in Kansas, Iowa State, and Kansas State. The 6-foot-7, 275-pound offensive lineman took official visits to those programs earlier this month.

He also received some recruiting interest from Arkansas and Minnesota.

Throughout his recruitment, Williams also received offers from Ivy League schools.

Williams is an explosive athlete for his size and boasts a 30-inch vertical jump.

The addition of Williams gives BYU their second-highest-rated recruit in the 2025 class.

Williams’ recruitment with BYU sped up in June after he visited the campus for a summer camp. There, he received a scholarship offer from new offensive line coach TJ Woods. Less than three weeks later, he commits to BYU.

BYU has 14 commitments for its 2025 recruiting class, eight of which were received this month.

Williams is the second offensive line commitment in the class. He joins Oakland native offensive tackle Kelepi Vete, who committed last month.
