Suffield’s Williams selects UNH

Zedane Williams helped his Suffield Academy team win the Northeast 7-on-7 North Regional at Exeter High School last summer. He’ll be back in New Hampshire for a longer stay later this year.

Williams, a linebacker/running back/kick returner, verbally committed to UNH on Tuesday and is expected to sign a national letter of intent with UNH on Feb. 6. He became the third player to commit to the UNH program this week, joining Tyrell Wiggins, a running back/defensive back from the Dexter Southfield School in Brookline; and J.C. Collins, a quarterback/defensive back from Williamstown (N.J.) High School.

Williams, who is listed a 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, received Suffield’s J. Edward Tryon Award as the team’s Most Outstanding Player following the 2018 season, which was his post-graduate year.

Wiggins, a Roxbury, Mass., resident, was the NEPSAC Class C co-MVP last season, when he rushed for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns on 96 carries for a team that finished the season with a 7-2 record. He also caught two TD passes, and returned a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown. Wiggins also had an offer from the University of Maine.

Collins committed to the University of Massachusetts in July, but had his scholarship offer pulled when Walt Bell replaced Mark Whipple as UMass’ head coach.

Collins led Williamstown to a 12-1 record and the South Jersey Group 5 title. As a senior Collins ran for 1,208 yards and 16 TDs ,and passed for 1,236 yards and 11 TDs.
