High School career
At Calvary Baptist Academy, Williams was able to win consecutive state titles, with quarterback Shea Patterson.
After redshirting his first year, Williams earned a starting spot after junior Kevin Toliver II was suspended. After Toliver came back from suspension, Williams kept his spot throughout the season. As a freshman, Williams led the SEC in interceptions and passes defended. As a result, he was selected to the All-SEC first-team. He became only the second LSU freshman to make the All-SEC team since 1986 (the other being Brad Wing in 2011).
Williams was nicknamed "Greedy" by his aunt, who called him "Greedy-Deedee" after babysitting him as an infant. His mother later took out the Deedee, and Williams adopted the name. In 2015, he told USA Today "I love . They say it’s a great DB name. It helps to be greedy as a defensive back."
