Army Game Announcement

"I'd say Michigan has just a slight lead over Notre Dame," said four-star defensive back Michael Williams. "It's really neck-and-neck. I would say there's a 51% chance I'll choose Michigan and a 49% chance I'll choose Notre Dame. Both have great programs. I really haven't made up my mind yet. I'll definitely decide after Christmas. It's a very difficult decision..."

Scout.com's No. 14 ranked cornerback Michael Williams (5-10.5, 190, 4.5), from St. Bonaventure High School in Ventura (Calif.), will announce his decision between Michigan and Notre Dame at the Jan. 6 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, sponsored by Scout.com.

"I'd say Michigan has just a slight lead over Notre Dame," the four-star defensive back said. "It's really neck-and-neck. I would say there's a 51% chance I'll choose Michigan and a 49% chance I'll choose Notre Dame. Both have great programs. I really haven't made up my mind yet. I'll definitely decide after Christmas. It's a very difficult decision.

"I guess I feel like I fit in a little better at Michigan, with the campus and the school," he said. "They seem to really try to help their student-athletes. They have a twelve million dollar student-athlete place. I just really liked it. Their facilities are top-notch.

"I like the tradition and stuff at Notre Dame. They have a real network after you graduate. It's evident with the alumni.

"Michigan wants me to play their nickel-back position," Williams said. "Notre Dame wants me as a safety-type. Neither school is looking at me as a cornerback.

"My parents don't have a preference. It's hard for them too, but they want me to make the decision for myself, so they won't try to influence me.

"USC and UCLA didn't really recruit me, even though I am close by to them," he said. "They are both already pretty stacked with DBs."

Williams reports a 3.5 core GPA and a 1650 SAT.
