Troy Williams has an upcoming decision weighing on his mind but that has not stopped him from looking forward to the Asante Quarterback Academy that will be held April 20-21 at Santa Fe Springs (Calif.) St. Paul.
"I'm always up for a good challenge," Williams said. "It's all fun out there. I know Jihad (Vercher) is going there and Kelly Hilinski and other quarterbacks will be there so it's always good to have competition out there.
"I try to get better, get my name out there to get even more exposure and to prove things to people when they say I'm overrated. I just go out there and work and really prove myself."
A decision could be coming up for Williams, a 6-foot, 173-pound four-star quarterback from Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne. He's visiting Arizona and Arizona State over the next couple days and said his commitment could come in the following weeks.
Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, Washington and Ole Miss are a top five for Williams, who threw for 3,247 yards with 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his junior season, and a couple more trips could happen before his pledge.
These upcoming visits are crucial as Williams plans to make his decision.
"It's real important because I'm thinking about committing in a couple weeks now and I'm looking at academic programs, the depth chart and how early I can get on the field," Williams said.
"(Arizona and Arizona State) could be frontrunners. They're definitely among my choices."
Before any decisions are made, Williams, who also rushed for 587 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, said he wants to travel to Washington for its upcoming junior day and hopefully get to Ole Miss as well.
Rivals.com rates Williams as the fourth-best pro-style quarterback and No. 71 prospect in the 2013 class.
