Las Vegas, Nev., high school has had 16 high schools through so far this May and there could be more schools on their way. Every year more and more schools head out to the nation’s fastest growing city in search of talent.
Corey Williams, the talented wide receiver at Las Vegas, Nev., high school has been one of this desert city’s main attractions by D-I recruiters. Williams has drawn the attention from schools that have never recruited the Vegas area before.
Williams stands 6-foot-3, weighs 186 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in a legitimate 4.59 seconds. He caught 39 passes as a junior. His career numbers are 85 receptions for 1,369 yards and 14 touchdowns.
A great all around athlete, Williams will compete in four events in the state meet next week. The events are 110 high hurdles, triple jump, long jump and high jump. He has run the 110 high hurdles in 14.6 seconds, recorded a 43.9 triple jump, 22.6 long jump and 6.2 high jump.
Michigan, Wisconsin, Miami, UNLV, Nebraska, UCLA, Oregon State Washington, WSU, Arizona, UTEP, and Utah State are a sampling of the schools that have been by the last couple of weeks.
Oregon State loved what they saw and joined UNLV with an official offer for the services of the talented wide receiver.
What makes the Oregon State offer interesting is the Beavers have done a great a job recruiting Vegas and could have two starters (MLB Richard Seigler and RB Stephen Jackson) from the Nevada desert town this fall and three others who could contribute.
Another player from Las Vegas high school who is drawing looks is offensive lineman Daniel Crews. Crews stands 6-foot-4, 267 pounds and has an electronically 40-yard dash time of 5.3 seconds.
Most schools will wait to see Crews this fall before offering. He is working incredibly hard. Crews is a late bloomer who will have several offers with a strong senior season.
