Tampa (Fla.) Robinson athlete Frankie Williams hit the road this past weekend for an official visit. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound prospect made his way to Cincinnati for an official visit. While there, he enjoyed learning more about the Bearcats.
"It was real good," Williams said. "I had a real nice time.
"When I first got there we went out to eat," Williams added. "Next day I went on a tour of the school and the facilities. I hung out with all of the players and everything. I went out with the players last night. This morning I spent the whole time with Coach (Butch) Jones and the whole staff. I ate breakfast with them and their family."

Williams, who will likely contribute as a defensive back or wide receiver at the collegiate level, said both opportunities exist for him at Cincinnati.
"They pretty much told me I was a dual-threat and that everything is up to me where I want to play there," Williams said. "They said they wouldn't promise me anything but the opportunity was there."
The three-star athlete was hosted on the visit by junior defensive back Reuben Johnson.
"He told me what you see is what you should expect," Williams said. "He said that everything the coaches told him was absolutely true. He said he hurt himself during the season and that there was no shadiness between him and the coaching staff. He said they treated him exactly the same as before the injury."
As far as making a decision, Williams is scheduled to visit Texas Tech next weekend. At this time, that is his final visit scheduled. He has one more available visit remaining. He didn't claim a leader at the conclusion of his Cincinnati visit but said that the list is basically narrowed to four schools.
"I have a narrowed list," Williams said. "N.C. State, Purdue, Cincinnati and Texas Tech."
No matter which side of the ball Williams ends up at in college, he will likely contribute on special teams as a return man. As a senior, he averaged 42.6 yards per return.
