Summer schedule filling out for Rivals250 RB

Marrero (La.) John Ehret Rivals250 running back Darrel Williams continues to see his offer list expand. The 6-1 and now 217-pound back has added several more opportunities from the Pac-12 and the Big 10 according to John Ehret running back coach/passing game coordinator Shawn Galmore, and is looking closely at his options.
"it's kind of expanded a little bit to more Pac-12 than the SEC," Coach Galmore said. "Arizona State is probably recruiting him the hardest out of anybody right now. LSU is probably still the favorite even though they haven't offered. Mississippi State has come on quite a bit. We're scheduled to go to Florida on the 26…."
One school which was heavily in the mix for awhile was Georgia, but after the Bulldogs picked up commitments from Sony Michel and Nick Chubb it is now out of the picture. Alabama is another school that has been in touch with Williams, and they planned a late spring visit but were unable to make it to Tuscaloosa.
"We didn't make the camp because we had car trouble and they said they were just going to follow him closely through the season," Coach Galmore said.
The Crimson Tide are not out of the mix and as Williams' summer schedule is being filled out another trip to Alabama is in the works.
"We're going to LSU in July," Coach Galmore said. "We're going to Florida, and we're going to Arizona State probably right after the LSU camp. Arizona State actually told him he could come in and start. They are on him the hardest. He is the No. 1 back on their board.
"They want him to get out to see USC. But kind of where we're at now the schools that have offered that's where we're going to go besides LSU.
"We really want to take a trip to Alabama. We're going to go up there because coach Burns took the time to come down so I feel like we owe him that to get up there. Alabama will be right before school starts."
While he does not have an offer from LSU, things could change following the July camp.
"We're going to go to the July camp. Basically from talking to Frank (Wilson) if they like him they're going to offer him," Galmore said. "They like his size and stuff but they want to see him in person to offer him."
An offer would be nice, but the camp will also give him and others a chance to see how he stacks up against some of the competition.
"We're going to go to camp to compete and see him against the other backs in his class and 2015 and 2016 and see how he looks next to them so everybody can get a good look at him," Coach Galmore said.
Williams is currently ranked No. 207 in the Rivals250, and among the top prospects in Louisiana.
