Marrero (La.) John Ehret Rivals250 running back Darrel Williams likes to let his actions on the field do most of the talking and they have spoken with great volume.
College coaches from across the country have come calling. From Cal on the west coast to Virginia Tech and Florida to the east, offers have been extended. Alabama and LSU continue to stay in touch, and most recently Auburn and Arkansas have expressed significant interest. However one program has shown more interest than any other.
"Arizona State is on him the hardest," John Ehret assistant Shawn Galmore said. "Coach Norvell basically told me he's the No. 1 back on their board and he could come in and have a chance to start. They love him a lot."
Missouri has also remained steady in their interest, and like the Sun Devils, let Williams know he is at the top of its list.
Williams has not taken many trips, but a few are in the works. He hopes to visit Arizona State soon. There are currently talks of a visit to Arkansas, and on August 1 he will visit the Auburn Tigers.
Williams is not publically listing a favorite but Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas, and Auburn are thought to be the current front runners. Not everyone has offered but that could change in the near future. As for a decision timetable, Williams is not sure.
"I was going to make it right before the season but I think I'm going to wait," Williams said. "If I do make it before the season I'll let you know."
When asked who he would choose if he did decide early he had a program in mind.
"Arizona State has been on me the hardest so probably them," Williams said.
However, as the season approaches and new schools come into the picture, Williams currently plans to wait. He is using his recruiting situation as motivation, and has big plans for 2013.
"My goals during the season are to get over 2,000 yards and over 20 touchdowns," Williams said.
Williams is currently ranked No. 207 in the Rivals250 and No. 14 in the Louisiana Spring Top 40.
