Macon (Miss.) Noxubee County outside linebacker Corey Williams is a physical force for the Mississippi team at the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound defender is hoping that a strong showing on Saturday will equate to some offers, because at this time he holds none.
"I hear from a lot of schools but they aren't really doing any big talk," Williams said. "I have been hearing from Jackson State, Ole Miss, and Mississippi State. Those are the main ones."
Mississippi State's Tony Hughes is keeping up with Williams while he hears from Tyrone Nix on the Ole Miss staff. He talked about what those two staffs are saying in conversations.
"They basically talk with me, check on how I am doing on the field and in school," Williams said. "They mostly ask me questions like how my season was going, how practice was going, and if I am lifting weights. They aren't really talking to me about a scholarship or anything like that."
One stumbling block for Williams is getting himself academically qualified. At this point, the interested parties want to see the progress he is making in the classroom.
"The schools have told me I need to get my transcript together and then send it off," Williams said. "When I get back to school I am going to try to get that all done so that we can move forward."
If Jackson fails to qualify, he said that Scooba (Miss.) East Mississippi Community College has shown him a great deal of interest.
