A Pittsburgh-area tight end prospect has fielded offers from sixteen schools, and says he's still struggling figuring out where to begin.
Quentin Williams, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound tight end from Pittsburgh (Pa.) Central Catholic, has offers from Minnesota, Colorado, Miami (Ohio), Marshall, West Virginia, Syracuse, Michigan State, Illinois, Northwestern, Boston College, Oklahoma, Stanford, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Nebraska, Vanderbilt and Rutgers.
"I don't really know where to start, and I'm not really sure of anything at the moment," Williams said Tuesday. "I have done some narrowing down, but I'm already kind of second guessing, wondering if I should maybe give more of these schools a chance."

Stanford is the most recent entry onto Williams' list, and he says they fit his profile for an ideal school in more ways than one.
"I'm looking for a good degree, and a good name for the school," said Williams, the holder of a phenomenal 1590 SAT score. "That's important where I come from: good people, good tradition, and a good balance between academics and football."
Another academic power made a big impression on Williams, but Charlie Weis is among the seemingly few coaches who haven't offered a scholarship.
"I visited Notre Dame, and it was great. It made a big impression on me, I loved it. I mean, who wouldn't?"
Williams did acknowledge that the chances of receiving an offer from the Irish are small, and has his sights firmly fixed on the bevy of suitors that have done so.
While he said he doesn't quite have his camp schedule nailed down, he will attend several, the most likely of which appear to be Boston College and Rutgers. Williams also knows of a few schools he'd like to take unofficial visits to soon.
"Oklahoma, Stanford, Northwestern, Boston College, Michigan State, Rutgers, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt and Nebraska are schools I'd like to get to," he said. "I know I won't be able to get to all of them so we'll see what happens. I'd like to find a school earlier than later but there's no rush."
