Four-star QB firms up pledge

Troy williams 7 29 200
Troy Williams has been committed to Washington since early June but other Pac-12 schools have tried to sway him away from that pledge.
However, after a recent unofficial visit to Washington the four-star quarterback from Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne said he's committed more than ever to the Huskies and doesn't think he'll consider other programs.
His pledge is so firm that Williams said many other teams have moved on from him and are no longer seriously recruiting him.
"It's solid," Williams said. "I'm a man of my word so I don't plan to change my mind at all. My commitment is pretty solid.
"There are some schools trying but it's kind of died down. Everybody knows I'm a solid commit. It's going really slow and schools haven't really been talking to me."
Williams, rated as the third-best dual-threat quarterback and No. 101 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, was at the Washington-USC game in recent weeks.
He had a good time hanging out with some other recruits and seeing guys from Los Angeles that he knew growing up.
It was a special trip and reaffirmed his commitment to the Huskies.
"It was really fun up there," Williams said.
"I got to hang out with Sean Parker and all those dudes from L.A. and I got to see all the recruits that went up there like Elijah Qualls. It was really fun. That was my first Washington game so it was a good experience."
An official visit is being planned for after the season to Washington. No other trips are being scheduled at this point and now that other teams have backed off it looks like the Huskies are in really good shape.
"I talked to coach (Steve Sarkisian) and he wants me to take my visit after the season," Williams said. "I'm looking forward to it."
