One of Florida's top running back prospects has his first two scholarship
Williams, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound all-state selection from Boynton Beach's
American Heritage Delray, has received offers from Central Florida and Rutgers.
"I'm really interested in UCF," he said. "They're my leader
right now. I like their offense. It's a nice balance between the running game
and the passing game. I like the campus and all the new facilities they have,
the weight room, all that. I like the coaching staff and the way they do things.
They seem to relate to the players, both as athletes and students. It just seems
like a program on the rise.
"I'm not too sure
about Rutgers. I kind of want to stay closer to home, down here where it's warm.
But I'll be looking at everyone who offers me."
Williams is also looking hard at Florida, Miami, Ohio State and Georgia.
"I love Florida's playing style and the teams they play
against. They have a very competitive, fun schedule. I like the new coaching
staff, too," he said. "Miami is about the same. I like that they're playing
against the best teams and competing for the national championship.
"With Ohio State, I like the city and the campus a lot.
I've heard a lot of good things about the school. They have a great running game
and they say a lot of NFL coaches visit there a lot.
"Georgia just seems like a nice place. I like the college
atmosphere, plus I've got family around there. It's also in the SEC, so they
play a lot of good teams."
As a junior, Williams
earned second-team all-state honors after rushing for more than 2,000 yards and
scoring 29 total touchdowns.
"My goal is to top
those this year," he said. "I want to lead my team in rushing and receiving, go
over 2,300 total, and score at least 30 touchdowns."
