Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central class of 2015 athlete Mykelti Williams already boasts three scholarship offers, but several more programs are ramping up their interest.
"I talk to Northwestern a lot," Williams said. "They just recently asked for my transcript information. It's a great school academically. I did a little bit of research and their football program is good too, so that wouldn't be a bad school to go to."

Williams had planned to attend Northwestern's home game this past weekend, but was unable to make the trip. He was able to attend a game at Ohio State last month, and has seen the interest from the Buckeyes rising as well.
"I talk to Ohio State's Coach [Kerry] Coombs," Williams said. "He said they are looking for DBs and I could potentially be one of those guys if I keep working.
"I went to an Ohio State game not too long ago when they played Penn State. It was crazy. I don't think I've ever been to a school like that."
Ohio State class of 2014 wide receiver commit Terry McLaurin, who attends a rival Indianapolis school, has been encouraging Williams to check out the Buckeyes.
"We talk and he said it is the place to be," Williams said. "I just want to see what he does when he goes down there."
Williams also attended a game at Indiana this season. The Hoosiers were the first school to extend an offer to the 6-foot, 185-pound prospect. Ole Miss and Akron have since followed with their own offers.
Among the schools Williams hears from on a regular basis are Minnesota, Purdue, Syracuse, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Nebraska.
Following a 12-7 win over Center Grove in the semifinals last weekend, Warren Central is slated to play Carmel for the Class 6A state title on Nov. 30. In 13 games this season Williams has tallied 85 tackles, three interceptions and nine pass deflections from his defensive back position.
