Three-star quarterback Marquise Williams is closing in on a decision. Before that comes, the 6-foot-3, 218-pounder took one more unofficial visit a week ago to North Carolina.
"It was pretty good," he said. "I participated in one section at the camp. I just showed Coach Shoop I can throw it. I had my own separate workout with him. It was great. He's a good quarterback coach and knows how to run things. It was pretty fun learning new stuff. I don't think I'm the greatest or best, but one thing about me is in order to be great I just got to keep working and be competitive."
Following camp, Williams met with Butch Davis.
"I talked to Coach Davis and a couple of the players," he said. "It was pretty good. My dad was saying how you can watch coaches on TV, but you really get a respect for them face to face."
Despite his plans to announce this weekend, Williams claims he will take more visits following his decision.
"I have a visit set up with Virginia Tech on July 10th and to Michigan for an official on October 9th when they play Michigan State."
According to Williams, all three schools know about his plans to take more visits.
In the meantime, Williams discussed his other finalists.
"Michigan, like I said, Coach Rod has been with me since I was a puppy freshman in high school," he said. "He sees me being a competitive quarterback and being really good.
"With Virginia Tech, I've been up to see the Hokies when they played Miami. I've never seen an atmosphere of football like that. I also have a lot of teachers at my school that graduated from Virginia Tech. It's a great school and I could fit into the offense. If I'm coming, there is nothing better than playing in front of thousands of people."
So, what is going through his head now with just a decision to make?
"I've just got to be calm and relaxed about my decision, make sure I make a great decision for me," he stated. "I can't come to a better decision than this with the Hokies, North Carolina and Michigan. All of them are great schools and coaches. It's going to be a tough decision, whatever decision I make.
"I feel I'm going to pick the school that makes me a better man and gets me a good degree."
