It's been over a month since Rivals last heard from Rivals250 running back De'Antwan Williams. The 5-foot-7, 185-pounder out of Woodbridge (Va.) Woodbridge Senior recently wrapped up his season and is now addressing recruiting.
"Recruiting is kicking up," he said. "I'm trying to find out what other schools are going to offer me, so I can narrow stuff down and start taking visits. I have sent film to a number of schools including Tennessee, Auburn, Texas, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Penn State, Georgia and LSU. If things go right with them I'll take a visit to one or more of those schools if they offer."
While he waits for word on that, Williams is taking one official this week.

"I do know I'm taking a visit to Rutgers this weekend for an official (December 12th)," he said. "That will be my first official.
"Rutgers has probably been the school after me the hardest. They compare me to Ray Rice. They think I'm better than Ray Rice. I can fill that need at running back and they are a running team. They run the ball 29 times a game. I shouldn't overlook them.
"I also am considering West Virginia for my next official. I've always liked West Virginia and I fit their style even though they run a spread offense."
The four-star prospect and Woodbridge fell in the regional playoffs.
"I finished with a little over 1,900-yards rushing and 33 or 34 touchdowns," he said. "It's disappointing to end the season like that. I also finished shy of the state rushing record by about 100-yards."
Despite all of that, Williams felt he improved a lot as a player this season.
"Oh yeah, my role was a lot bigger, I was more of a leader than I have been. I think that is one of the reasons we went as far as we did."
