"I visited UCLA on Thursday to watch them practice," Sutton said. "It was really good, UCLA's defense is really strong."
"UCLA told me they want to see a game first before offering," Sutton said. "Northwestern said the same thing, too."
"I haven't decided what schools to visit yet," Sutton said. "I will think about setting visits sometime during the season. I want to see how my recruitment goes during the season."
One thing is for sure, Sutton has put in the work this offseason. His current bench is 315, he squats 435 and power cleans 285. His most recent vertical is 33-inches.
Centennial coach Matt Logan had the following to say about his talented defensive lineman.
"William uses his hands really well, not a lot of his kids on the high school level can do that," Logan said. "He also plays baseball so that keeps him out of the most of our offseason training, but he now sees the importance of lifting so he is keeping in (football) shape and he is benefiting by his work ethic.
"William is also a good leader and I expect him to step it up as a senior," Logan said. "He's a vocal leader and works really hard in practice. He is always looking to improve as a football player."
As a junior, Sutton earned all-league, all-CIF and second-team all-county. On a very talented team, Sutton earned his team's Defensive Lineman of the Year award after accounting for 70 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one fumble recovery.
