Williams impressed with UCLA visit

Walker Williams recently camped at UCLA and it was another important trip to Los Angeles for the Tacoma (Wash.) Tacma Baptist offensive tackle since he's getting to know the Bruins' coaches even better.
Getting to see them in a camp setting was good for Williams, a 6-foot-7, 320-pound prospect, because that gives him a better sense of how they'll coach if he were to play there.
"UCLA was nice," Williams said. "It was a great day for a camp. They had a great turnout. They had about 200-250 guys out there so it was pretty good competition to choose from with the one-on-ones and we got a lot of work done. Rick (Neuheisel) told us to tone it down a little bit which is always good to hear from the coaches.
"It's always good in the recruiting process to actually see the coaches and get to talk to them in person and not just over the phone during the one call they get to you. You don't normally talk to the head coach except once or twice. It's nice to see them in camps where you see how they coach and see how they are on the field."
Williams, a three-star prospect rated No. 55 at offensive tackle by Rivals.com, said he doesn't plan to narrow down his offer list much yet because he's still evaluating all the schools.
So far, Colorado, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin have offered and Cal, Michigan and Notre Dame are showing lots of interest.
An official visit is planned to Wisconsin for its game against Nebraska on Oct. 1 and Williams is planning some other trips before making a decision. He's not sure of the other destinations yet though.
"I'm going to wait until I can take at least one or two official visits," Williams said.
"I already have an official visit set with Wisconsin on October 1. That's all I have scheduled right now. I'm going to be looking at the other schools and then choosing a couple more official visits probably."
