Dwight Williams has only been talking to Colorado for a few weeks but already the 2014 linebacker from Gardena (Calif.) Serra said he's built a strong relationship with the coaching staff.
"I've been talking to coach (Brian) Cabral for only about two weeks but it seems like I've known him forever," Williams said. "He's sending me more and more mail and I really like the staff over there.
"He's just being personable. Some coaches don't really like to talk to recruits all that much but he's like family already. It's out of state and all but I think I can deal with it. I'm still going to explore my options."
Williams, a 6-foot-1, 197-pound prospect, could be one of the top linebackers in California's 2014 class so more opportunities should be forthcoming through his junior and senior seasons.
Some Pac-12 teams are already getting seriously involved.
He said UCLA, Arizona State and Washington have also been showing lots of interest along with some other Pac-12 schools but since it's so early in his recruitment Williams is just going to take his time with the recruiting process.
"Sometimes it is difficult to wait," Williams said. "But right now I'm just trying to play football and focus on that."
If Williams continues to play as well as he did this past weekend at the IMG Madden 7-on-7 West Regional in Redondo Beach, Calif., then more offers could be on the way soon.
The Gardena Serra standout was one of the top defenders throughout the tournament and proved why he already has one offer from the Pac-12.
