Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central athlete Mykelti Williams was one of the first class of 2015 prospects from the state of Indiana to arrive on the recruiting scene, but recently his recruitment has quieted down, largely from his own doing.
The 6-foot, 185-pound Williams visited just one school in the spring and has not attended any summer camps, but he does continue to hear from colleges across the country.
"A lot of schools are showing interest: Ohio State, Missouri, Michigan State, Iowa State, Iowa, Virginia Tech," Williams said. "Ohio State is really one I want to look at. I like the DB coach, Coach Kerry Coombs, and he has been communicating with me and visiting with us."
Williams is considering attending Ohio State's Friday Night Lights Camp on July 26, but has stayed off the summer camp scene thus far.
"We have been having practices and our school doesn't like us doing individual camps," he said. "I don't know which ones I want to attend yet, but I will be at some of the [July] college camps."
Indiana jumped out with the first offer for Williams this past winter, and they are the school he knows the best at this stage of his recruitment.
"I have been down to IU, but I haven't been anywhere else yet," Williams said. "The coaching staff is amazing down there as are the campus and the facilities. Then I know a lot of the players down there. They say they will have a good recruiting class my senior year."
With much of his recruitment still ahead of him, Williams has no leaders and is not sure whether staying close to home or getting out of state will be his future path.
"I wouldn't say I have a preference right now," Williams said. "I'm just going to weigh my options out and see how the recruiting process goes."
Williams could project to multiple positions at the college level. This fall he will primarily play safety on defense and expects to be used all over Warren Central's offense.
