Four-star returns from Notre Dame

Four-star defensive back Michael Williams (5-10, 185, 4.5) from Ventura (Calif.) Saint Bonaventure returned from his first official visit of this recruiting season. He went to Notre Dame.
"Michael had a great trip," Saint Bonaventure coach John Mack said. "He loved it."
"Michael had nothing but great things to say about Notre Dame," Mack said. "He has his priest Father Steve on the trip and his good friend Terrail Lambert was his host."
"Terrail was kind of like his big brother when he played here (Saint Bonaventure) before going to Notre Dame," Mack said. "They both play the same position."
"Notre really took care of him," Mack said. "Michael told me even gained weight on the visit."
Though Williams had a tremendous time, he did not commit. He will take at least one more visit to Michigan.
