Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central safety Mykelti Williams has yet to pare his list of 15 offers, but he is starting to identify the schools he wants to visits.
"This weekend I will probably be at the Indiana-Indiana State game," Williams said. "I want to see how (Indiana's) defensive side of the ball looks. I know they can score points, I just want to see if they can stop anybody."
Williams expects to follow up the visit to Indiana with a trip to Ohio State on Sept. 6 for their home match-up with Virginia Tech. His first couple trips will be unofficial visits.
"I haven't scheduled any officials yet, but I talked to a lot of coaches like Cincinnati, Illinois, Ole Miss, Purdue, Indiana, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Ohio State," Williams said.
Williams identified Ole Miss and Louisville as having the strongest shot at receiving one of his official visits. A third school that is making a strong push recently and could be in-line for one of those official visits is Wisconsin.
"I have been talking to Coach (T.J.) Woods and we have built a good relationship," Williams said. "I actually haven't been up there yet, but I really want to get up there during the school year and check it out."
The weekends Williams is not traveling to college campuses he will be tuning games in on television and expects to glean a lot from the outplay of the 2014 college season.
"I am excited to see what is out there, how teams are looking and how everything plays out," Williams said. "I want to see how defenses are looking, how offenses are looking. You really can't get the full extent because you're not there, but seeing it on TV and hearing about teams is something I've been waiting for."
At this stage of his recruitment Williams has not identified a top group of schools for his services, but he does not plan to draw out his recruitment when he does identify the school he wants to attend.
"A decision could come at any time," Williams said. "If it is not during the season, I think it will probably be right after the season."
The 6-foot, 185-pound Williams started his senior season off by intercepting the first pass on the first defensive play of the game in a 12-9 win over Center Grove. He finished the night with 14 tackles and also punched in the game-winning touchdown on a rush out of the Wildcat position in overtime.
