Williams Names a Leader

Williams Names a Leader

Scout.com talked with 2010 prospect Avery Williams from Coolidge High School in Washington, D.C. The talented athlete holds four offers and is hearing from two other big time schools. He also talks about which school is at the top of his list right now.

Avery Williams spent the summer at some very prestigious schools. He was willing to travel and camped at several places including UCLA, Southern California and Georgia. He gained valuable experience and also made a lasting impression on several schools. Already holding offers from Kansas, Michigan State, Utah and West Virginia, Williams has established himself as one of the best prospects in all of Washington D.C. He talked about the last camp he attended and other aspects of his recruiting.

"The last camp I went to after USC was Georgia," said Williams. "I went done there and really performed well. The coaches told me they will watch me this September and if I do as well in the games I will get an offer. They were first looking at me as a defensive back but now they are recruiting me as an athlete."

As Williams travels around the country teams continue to add themselves as potential suitors for his services. "UCLA has really come on strong recently. I really like their program and their interest has me excited. They are the ones showing the most interest right now."

Williams will have the opportunity to continue to showcase his athletic ability as he will be playing all over the field this fall. "I will be playing running back, slot, wide receiver, strong safety and sometimes cornerback. I will also return punts but I won't play other special teams. The coaches figured with all the other positions I may need some rest sometimes."

I asked Williams about his official visits and he isn't going to schedule any except one. "My first visit will be West Virginia. I will go there for sure. After that I just want to see how the recruiting goes. I am very happy and appreciative of my offers but there may be other schools that offer and I don't want to have visits planned and then have to try and reschedule things. After another month or two I will know where I stand more and can schedule and plan things better then.

When asked about a leader, Williams didn't hesitate. "West Virginia is definitely number one right now. I love the school, the coaches, the system the run. I love the town too. It is just a great place. Kansas and Utah are tied for second right now. I like those schools and they are pretty even. Michigan State would be after them. I like the school and the Big Ten but I just feel the other schools are a better fit for me. If Georgia or UCLA would offer that may change my order. I really like both of those schools especially Georgia. I have said before that an offer could put them at the top."
