Hoover, Ala., is one of the nation's top prep football teams year in and year out. When a program is that successful it's going to produce its share of Division I talent and this year is no exception. Wide receiver Cornelius Williams has already picked up two offers and is drawing interest from others.
"I have offers from Southern Miss and Middle Tennessee State," Williams said. "I am getting a lot of interest from other schools, but some of the ones that have been mailing the most and that called me in May were Arkansas, UAB, Mississippi State and Tennessee."
The 6-foot-0, 172-pound Williams attended the NIKE camp in Oxford in May where he ran a blistering 4.25 second shuttle and had a 28-inch vertical jump.
"Right now I don't have a list of favorites," Williams said. "I'm pretty much interested in anyone that is interested in me. I have been to camps at Tennessee and Mississippi State and I am going to Auburn in a couple of weeks and I will be at Alabama's 7-on-7."
As a junior caught 55 passes for 955 yards and 10 touchdowns in helping lead the Bucs to their fourth state title in five years and third consecutive.
"I really want to take my time with the process and do my research and take visits," Williams said. "I want to go to a place that has strong academics and a place where I feel at home. I think it's all about how comfortable I feel with the coaches and people that I am surrounded with."
