Founder & CEO
Raw Recruiting & Raw Elite Talent was founded by Rodney Avonte Williams. While attending Rockdale County High School in Georgia, Rodney played football and ran track.
After high school, he continued his collegiate career at Shorter University. Through the process of collegiate sports he learned the ins and outs of recruiting. Medical issues forced him to cease his playing career but that did not stop him from staying close to the sport he loves.
Since the founding of Raw Recruiting in January of 2017, every athlete that has used the recruiting service has signed. Raw Recruiting has helped over 100 student-athletes earn scholarships to the next level.
Nathan Dorton played collegiate football at Appalachian State University as a preferred walk-on wide receiver. Dorton was a member of the Low Country team in the inuagural College All Star Bowl in 2013 in South Carolina and played for the Cape Fear Heroes indoor professional football team in Fayetteville, NC.
He is the founder of Phenom Elite (www.phenomelite.com) and is also the offensive and recruiting coordinator at Palmetto Prep Academy (palmettoprep.org) in Columbia, SC. Palmetto Prep is a post-graduate prep football program.
During his time as recruiting coordinator, Nathan has helped an average of 30 players per season earn an offer to play at a four year college or university.
