GARDENA, Calif. - Dwight Williams is far more concerned about his junior season than recruiting since he has lots of time to still figure things out.
The 6-foot-1, 197-pound linebacker had a strong game in Gardena Serra's 20-12 victory against Long Beach Poly on Friday night and said his focus is not on the recruiting process at this point.
So far, Colorado, Oregon State and UCLA have offered and Williams said he's been hearing from schools across the country. One of the newest involved is Mississippi State but Williams plans to remain patient.

"It's pretty much the same," Williams said. "I guess it will start picking up once the season goes on.
"I think I'll hear from others but I've pretty much heard from everybody already as far as letters. I haven't really been calling any coaches. I'm going to wait on that a little bit.
"I'm just enjoying the season right now. I'm just trying to help these seniors because they've been in line. I just want to win."
Williams did not catch UCLA's victory against Rice Thursday night but noticed freshman cornerback Ishmael Adams was at the Serra-Poly game.
The 2014 linebacker said he was going to try to make it to USC's opener against Hawaii and definitely plans to take an unofficial trip to UCLA this weekend for its home opener against Nebraska.
"My boy Ishmael is here somewhere," Williams said. "I saw him. It's still too early to name leaders. I'm just taking it slow."
Gardena Serra is off to a fantastic start with victories against Long Beach Poly and Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame in the season opener.
"That means we're on a roll," Williams said. "We have to keep our heads down, keep focused on one game at a time and keep doing what we do."
