Troy Williams did not make the UCLA junior day this past weekend because he was throwing bombs at the1925 All-Stars 7-on-7 tryout and couldn't rush across town in time for the visit.
That's fine though because the Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne quarterback said he will reschedule with the UCLA staff and get to Westwood sometime soon.
"I tried to make both but it was kind of hard so I'll just go up there another time," Williams said.

The four-star prospect who threw for 3,247 yards with 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions and rushed for another 587 yards and 11 scores in his junior season said his recruitment has gotten a little more serious recently and he's focusing on which schools stand out more.
So far, Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, Washington, Nevada and Bowling Green have offered Williams, rated No. 71 in the early 2013 rankings by Rivals.com.
"It's starting to get a little more serious," Williams said. "I'm starting to get more attention and I'm getting a little closer to my decision because I'm going to leave early. I'm going to start looking at all the aspects of the schools and going online to look at the depth chart.
"I'll probably make my decision toward the middle part of the season. I want to make sure I make the right decision and make sure I'm comfortable with it."
Coming up for Williams are possible unofficial visits to Arizona State and Washington and the Bruins will definitely remain a contender throughout his recruitment.
But Williams does not want to name any favorites until he takes more visits, meets with coaching staffs and has some more time to do research. He's not ready to name any frontrunners just yet.
"Everybody is even right now," Williams said. "I don't want to put anybody out there. Everybody is even."
