Dontye Carriere-Williams has five offers on the table, but is in the class of 2016 and has plenty of time to add more offers to consider. In the meantime, he knows exactly what he's looking for from a school.
"I want to go to a school where I can play early," the 5-foot-9, 181-pound cornerback from Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington said. "It also has to be the right scheme. Man-to-man first works best for me."
Troy was the first to offer Carriere-Williams, and Temple, Buffalo, Jacksonville and Monmouth followed suit. Though it's early, he said Temple has been pushing the hardest to bring him on board after seeing him perform at the South Florida Express 7-on-7 Tournament.
For now, however, Carriere-Williams is taking a wait-and-see approach.
"Right now, I'm just enjoying the process," he said. "I'm still young."
Carriere-Williams is hoping to show progress and high-level performances over the next two years, with hopes of earning offers from Florida, Miami, Georgia and South Carolina.
Carriere-Williams said he's had contact with Florida and will look to advance those discussions soon.
"I'm going to have to get out in front of them more," he said.
