Williams still has Pac-12 leader

Fresno (Calif.) Central East's pipeline to Arizona is open with two commitments already this recruiting cycle and another could be on the way.
Defensive tackle Sharif Williams continues to say Arizona remains his favorite but the 6-foot-2, 298-pound prospect does not want to make a commitment this early in his recruitment.
With four-star running back Nick Wilson and three-star defensive back Devon Brewer already committed to Arizona, Williams said that could play a big factor as things move forward.
The Wildcats are the leader but the Fresno Central East star wants to keep things open.
"Arizona is still looking good," Williams said.
"They keep coming after me hard and they really want me. I talk to the coaches a lot now. One of my other friends just committed there, too, Devon Brewer, so it's still on the top right now. I'm still going to wait later down the road to pick.
"That's a pretty big factor that both are going there. I'm close with both of them so it would be good playing together."
Williams, who looked good at the Rivals Camp Series in Los Angeles, has offers from Arizona, Fresno State, Houston, Nevada and San Diego State. Cal and Washington are showing interest but Williams said no other programs have reached out recently.
The Fresno Central East standout is not necessarily going out of his way to get more recruiting attention - especially with the Wildcats looking so good at this point.
Camps are not a major priority for him this summer. He's more focused on working out with his team and getting ready for a big senior season with a loaded Fresno Central East squad that could feature at least six Division I prospects.
"It's still pretty much the same schools right now," Williams said. "I'm doing a lot of team training and a lot of working out. I might go to a camp but I don't really know."
