Tulsa (Okla.) Edison athlete Terrell Williams is one of the top players in Oklahoma for the class of 2008. After an impressive junior season, Williams had added some solid weight to his frame and some solid offers to his resume.
"Recruiting is getting crazy right now," Williams, who now up to 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, said. "I've got offers from Arkansas, Ole Miss and Stanford."
"I'm being invited to all these camps and stuff. I'm meeting all these new people. I've been hearing from a lot of different schools. It's kind of equal. I would say Tennessee, LSU, Colorado, Stanford, Vanderbilt have been writing me a lot and Illinois. "

A few other schools are also on the verge of offering him.
"Texas Tech, Tennessee, Army, and are all pretty close to offering," he said. "Michigan says I have good grades, and they like my size. I lost weight during basketball, but now I'm getting it back up."
Stanford's coaches have made a big impression on him early on.
"I would have to say I've been most impressed with Jim Harbaugh and coach Clayton White from Stanford. They're down to earth and everything. Hopefully this summer I get to meet the coaching staffs at other schools, and get to know them a little better to help me out with my decision."
The in-state schools are also interested.
"OSU is supposed to offering, and OU is supposed to offering," he said. "I talk to coach Jackie Shipp at OU, and he said they were close to offering."
But Williams isn't ready to claim a leader at this point.
"You can't go wrong with any program," he said. "They all have something to offer. I want to go where I can contribute the most though. Academics first, I'm not going to be playing football all my life and the NFL is not guaranteed. Early playing time is good, but I would like to contribute the program as soon as I get there.
"My dad went through the recruiting process. He played basketball for OU. My mom was an athlete who went to OU. It's good to have some people like that who have been through the recruiting process. They are Ok with whoever I pick."
