Daren Williams hits double-digits
Daren Williams reports offers from the likes of Central Florida, South Florida, Tulane, Southern Miss, Old Dominion, the Cajuns in Lafayette and others. "Old Dominion is standing out," Williams said. "They're showing a lot of love. They do what all schools do with recruiting, and then they put even more effort into it. On my birthday their coaches all sent handwritten mail to wish me a happy birthday. All the schools that have offered are good, but right now Old Dominion is standing out the most." Williams is being targeted on behalf of the Cajuns by coach Tim Rebowe, a perennial fixture on the River Parish recruiting trail with an outstanding track record of signing in-state talent. "I have a good connection with Coach Rebowe," Williams said. "He and their coaches have shown a lot of love. I didn't camp with UL but went to their 7v7, where the coaches saw me there." According to Williams, he hasn't heard from Tulane in a while but that doesn't mean the Green Wave should be counted out. "I haven't really spoken to Tulane too much besides the day they offered," he said. "They got two players from our school, Deebo (Darion Monroe) and Leonard Davis. Deebo started as a freshman and Leonard is expected to start, too. Their team is looking good with the recruiting classes they've been getting, and I like how they'll play you early." Williams says Arkansas State has placed a preliminary offer on the table and will solidify that soon. "They've offered unofficially and I'm supposed to give them a call so they can make it official," he explained. "I like Arkansas State. They do nice in the conference and have good-looking uniforms." Williams is keeping an open mind and has legitimate interest in multiple FCS schools that have offered. "Northwestern State is showing hecka love," he said, "and Southern Miss has pretty facilities - which I researched. I like how when I call the Northwestern coaches, they answer. That shows they really want me." Williams described what he brings to the table when he takes the field. "I'm very strong with my bull rush and can be unstoppable coming off the edge," he said. "I had between 19 and 22 sacks last year." Williams and his teammates get a shot at defending national champ John Curtis Christian in non-district play September 20. East Saint John went 5-5 in 2012 and reached the first round of the Class 5A bracket. The Wildcats square off with defending 5A state champ Archbishop Rummel in the regular season opener for both teams September 6.
