Three-star athlete Delton Williams of Erie (Pa.) Cathedral Prep is down to three schools. The 6- foot-2, 205-pounder plans to take a couple of visits before a potential decision.
"I was supposed to go to Ohio State on Friday, but it turned out I didn't go. I didn't want to take that trip anymore," he said. "Right now, it's basically Nebraska, Michigan State and West Virginia. I'm down to those three."
Now that he is focusing his efforts on those three schools, Williams hopes to take a couple of visits.

"I'm planning a visit to Nebraska in a week or so," he said. "I'm also planning a trip to West Virginia soon too."
Each of his three finalists made his list for a different reason.
"Nebraska is a little different," he said. "It allows me to go on my own way, do my own thing and not many people around here get recruited by Nebraska. Down at Michigan State, Damion Terry, my quarterback is committed there. I went down there and liked it a lot. That's my No. 1 right now. I feel that way about them and I've been down three times. The first time was the jump ball game against Wisconsin. That was my first college game and it made it feel special."
With the Mountaineers, Williams is being loyal for their continued support.
"I was almost charged and they stayed around," said Williams. "They kept in touch until after the charges were dropped. I have to at least give them a chance, that's why I kept them too. Damion took a visit there before he committed to Michigan State and liked it a lot. He told me I should at least give them a visit before I make my decision."
Ideally, Williams plans to visit both West Virginia and Nebraska before the season, but if it does not work out he noted plans to take at least an official to Nebraska during the season.
Williams also discussed what he hopes to experience during each of his visits.
"I just want to see that a college has good academics and it's somewhere I'll feel comfortable," he said. "I want to give a fair chance to the other schools. I'm not set on Michigan State or following my quarterback. I could do my own thing as well."
