Colleges getting familiar with Williams

Port Lavaca (Texas) Calhoun 2014 athlete Jakorious Williams has been a standout contributor on both sides of the ball for the Sandcrabs.
Now entering his third varsity season, Williams has played in the secondary, at linebacker, and in the offensive backfield. The 5-11.5, 215-pound prospect has been a difference maker from the beginning and college coaches have taken notice.
Every week the recruiting letters come and every week it is a basket full.
"LSU sends me some every week. Nebraska does. OU, OSU, TCU…," Williams said.
Port Lavaca Calhoun head coach head coach Richard Whitaker is quick to pick up the list where Williams leaves off adding Arkansas and Texas Tech.
Whitaker is quick to state, "He's a big time player," when referring to Williams and college coaches tend to agree. He has not scheduled any visits but he is not short of invitations. LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, and Nebraska have each invited him up for an unofficial visit, and he does anticipate taking a trip or two before the end of the season.
"I don't know which ones, but my guardian says he wants to take me to one," Williams said.
When it comes to position, Williams has no preference. He knows last year most schools were eyeing him for a role in their secondary. Now, he does not know exactly what position he is being recruited to play, but it's no big deal either way. His position of preference is on the field.
"It would be anyone that they would put me at," Williams said. "I just like being on the field."
It's easy to see Williams finds joy on the field regardless of what side of the ball he is playing.
"On defense I like the contact and hitting other people instead of getting hit," Williams said. "On offense I just like making the team happy and trying to do the best I can."
In 2011, Williams was named second-team all-area at safety after recording 65 tackles and 4 INTs. In 2012 Williams is once again off to a hot start as a linebacker and defensive back on defense and a fullback on offense.
He has already shown his tremendous closing speed with a bone crushing sack against Somerset, and is among the area's rushing leaders with 635 yards and 10 TDs on 49 carries.
