Javon Williams had been strongly considering leaving the state of Arizona to play college football but after visiting Arizona State this past weekend the Chandler, Ariz., four-star wide receiver isn't so sure any longer.
Williams, a 6-foot-5, 175-pound prospect, said his trip to Tempe went really well and the Sun Devils are definitely in the mix especially because he felt so close to the team.
"I had a lot of fun," Williams said. "I didn't expect the treatment I got there. I didn't expect ASU to treat me that well. I didn't know I could feel like a part of the team like that. It was a really good experience.
"It's really important because it's changed my perspective if I want to leave Arizona for sure. Now I have doubt about that and there is a chance I could go to ASU. I wouldn't say I have any favorites but it went well."
Before Williams makes any decisions, though, he's planning to visit Oklahoma State the weekend of Jan. 20 and sometime this week he's trying to set up his trip to Arkansas. Because of the playoffs coming up, Williams said he might have to wait to see Fayetteville.
"I haven't set a date with Arkansas," Williams said. "I'll probably set a date this week. It will probably be busy because we're in the playoffs and that's critical so I might have to do it after the season."
A team to watch in Williams' recruitment is Oregon.
Even though the Ducks have not offered yet they're showing a lot of interest and the four-star receiver said there is strong consideration to take a visit to Eugene. There is also a chance he'll see Colorado before making his commitment.
"They've always been there and they've shown a lot of interest," Williams said of Oregon.
"They haven't offered yet but they're talking to me and they really want me. They call me when they can and they e-mail me and show a lot of interest."
Rivals.com rates Williams as the No. 30 wide receiver and No. 216 prospect in the 2012 class. He's the fifth-best recruit in the Arizona state rankings.
