Four-star running back Bo Williams went with teammate Jimmy Maitland on an official visit to North Carolina State. The 6-foot-1, 203-pounder out of Oakland Park (Fla.) Northeast had a good trip, but was it enough to top the impressive one earlier this month to Nebraska?
"The visit was great, I mostly went on it for Jimmy and I know he loved it," he said. "Jimmy and I are looking at going to school together and we're hoping a lot of other colleges take that in consideration if they are looking at me. We're good friends and I know I'm the leading rusher, but a lot of that is due to the fact that he's such a big, strong guy that opens the holes for me. He's a fantastic blocker."
On the visit, Williams was hosted by former teammate Audi Augustin.
"It was great being with him," he said. "He basically showed us the school and talked about how much he loves it there. He told us that basically you see what you get and the school is great and the kids on the team seem like a family I could be around. It reminds me a lot of Northeast.
"I also got to talk to some of the coaches including coach Stroud and Chuck Amato. They are two great guys and they both told us that they wanted us there."
Of course the game was a big part of the visit and Williams came away impressed with the Wolfpack's come from behind victory.
"Oh man, that game was crazy and the fans were crazy," he said. "They were down until the last seconds and the fans came running on the field. It was great and a lot of fun down there."
Despite the good visit, the trip wasn't exactly great for the No. 19 running back in the country.
"I'd probably give the trip a six," he said. "I didn't really get to do anything besides stay in the hotel most of the time. There wasn't nearly as much time to hang out with the players and touch base with them.
"I also noticed they don't use the fullback that much. The offense seemed kind of shaky and I was a little leery of the formations they run. I want to be in something that utilizes a fullback."
The North Carolina State visit couldn't quite match up to his trip to Nebraska.
"The Nebraska visit was fantastic, it was a 10," he stated. "I loved every bit of it because they fans knew who I was at the airport and even knew it was my birthday. It was almost a little creepy, but very exciting."
As for other visits, the No. 32 prospect in Florida is looking at a few schools.
"I have a lot of schools to choose from," he said. "I'm looking at quite a few including UCLA, West Virginia, Boston College, Florida, Louisville, Florida State and Pittsburgh. I do think I'll definitely take one to Pitt with Jimmy. The other two I'm not sure who it'll be."
