Rivals100 running back Ryan Williams is the quietest big name prospect in the country, but that doesn't mean coaches don't know who he is. Plenty of the nation's top teams are very interested in the Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson tailback.
"Everything is going good," Stonewall Jackson head coach Loren Johnson said. "He is creating a lot of traffic for his teammates here and helping them out in a lot of ways. He's been the constant teammate and helping our team."
Johnson claims there are plenty of offers still coming in for the 5-foot-10, 192-pounder.

"He's getting tons of offers, but right now he's focused on himself and his grades," he said. "He was one class away from getting straight A's. The kid is working very hard."
Is anything new on the recruiting front for Williams?
"We haven't decided on any summer camps yet," he said. "In recruiting, we're still in the process of going through all the schools and determining who will be the best fit for him and the rest of our seniors."
While Williams is easily getting the most interest, Stonewall Jackson has a handful of other recruits to watch in 2008.
"Linebacker Breon Shelton (6-foot-4, 217-pounds), wide receiver Nick Jackson (5-foot-9, 170-pounds), wide receiver Ricky Kyles (6-foot-3, 190-pounds) and defensive end Delonte Owens (6-foot-2, 227-pounds) are all getting interest," he said. "Many of them are hearing from Cincinnati and Temple and they like the way they look.
"I can say all of those guys are in their second year of playing high school football and have great work ethic and are very coachable."
One other player Johnson couldn't forget about was 6-foot-4, 310-pound offensive guard Nick Hill.
"Everybody that comes in likes his size," he said. "I know West Virginia and a few other schools are talking about him, but he needs to work on his grades some. He is a great kid though."
