Williams Looking to Rise

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Jan 12, 2012


Detroit King (Mich.) junior quarterback Davuan Williams had a good 2011 season, leading his team into the playoffs and now he is looking to catch the attention of colleges.

Detroit King had a very successful 2011 campaign, winning three playoff games before a narrow one point loss to eventual state champion Brother Rice.

At the controls for the Crusaders was junior quarterback Davaun Williams, who has solid size at 6'1, 215-lbs to go with a strong arm.

"I've gotten letters from Toledo, Grand Valley, and Bowling Green, and one written letter from Iowa," he said. "During the season, I went to Central Michigan, other than that, no [visits]."

Earlier this month, Williams competed at the U.S. Army Junior Combine in San Antonio.

"I really enjoyed myself. I had fun learning from the different coaches, meeting coaches, understanding their philosophies and having fun playing in Texas and trying to compete to be in the bowl game next year."

With senior running back Dennis Norfleet off to college, Williams knows he will have more of the offense on his shoulders and will be working hard this offseason to prepare himself for that.

"One main thing I think I'm really putting forth a lot of effort into is for one, my speed, trying to get my speed up. Also reading better, understanding the game, and trying to get better as a true quarterback understanding down and distance and what's going on down the field."
