The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder plans to head to two of those programs this summer for camp.
"I am going to camp at Middle Tennessee State and Virginia," he said. "I do want to stay close to home and I am looking toward a bigger school and I will be looking hard at the prestige of the school."
Williams talked about his strengths and weaknesses as a player.
"I have a quick release," he said. "One of the things I need to work on is my decision-making."
Williams talked about the program at Forrest High led by coach Dennis Clemons, which sent linebacker Brandon Hicks to Florida in last year's recruiting class.
"The program here is good," he said. "We have an experienced coaching staff and I have learned a lot from our quarterbacks coach, David Nurnberg."
Williams threw for more than 1,700 yards last season.
