When talking about the top players in Ohio, few people mention Washington Court House Miami Trace defensive end Nathan Williams enough.
The 6-foot-5, 245-pound strongside defensive end has an amazing frame, an even better motor and an excellent attitude.
"I want to work hard to be the best that I can out there on the football field," Williams said.

"I know I have a lot of potential, but I need to keep working hard to make sure that I can get even better. That means more time in the weight room, more time out there working on getting after the quarterback and improving my technique."
It's not like his game is too shabby at this point.
Williams had early scholarship offers from Cincinnati and Miami of Ohio, but he's recently gotten hot with several other high-profile programs.
"West Virginia offered me a few weeks back, and then just the other day I got an offer from Oklahoma," Williams said.
"Coach (Chris Wilson) talked to my coach and asked him if I would have any interest in Oklahoma. I told my coach 'of course I would, it's Oklahoma.' He then sent me a text message, and I called him.
"We talked about the offer, and how they really liked me. That's an offer that really gets me excited. Of course I'd be interested in an offer like that from Oklahoma."
Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame and Penn State are also monitoring his situation closely, but it might be tough to pull him away from the Bucks if they decide to go ahead and offer him.
"Ohio State is my favorite, but I'm also going to check out all of my options, especially with these new schools offering me," Williams said. "I'll probably visit OSU again this spring. I might go up to Michigan or Notre Dame to look around, and maybe Penn State."
Williams had 149 tackles including 24 for loss during his junior season.
