Williams Talks About Decision
Since his official visit to Utah back in October Avery Williams knew that could be the place for him. Nothing changed over the last few months and despite having several other offers, Williams decided to make his verbal commitment to the Utes. "Utah is such a great place," said Williams. "I knew it was the place for me and everything I am looking for in a school. I really like the coaches and the program. I like the people and I think I will fit in best there." Williams had several other offers and said it was still a tough decision to say no to other schools. "My final five were Kansas, Michigan State, New Mexico, Utah and West Virginia. I would say West Virginia was my next choice and then probably New Mexico. New Mexico had a lot of athletes there in the two classes ahead of me so I don't know what my role would be. I know what they said but I didn't think it was the best fit for me. I know players there and really wanted to get away from all that and be on my own." West Virginia has long been a favorite of Williams and he has still been thinking about WVU recently. "West Virginia is a great place. I can't say anything bad about them. I really like them but getting far from home is something that I am looking forward to next year." As we talked more Williams really opened up as to why Utah will be his destination. "My family has always been there and supportive of me. It is far but we believe that they are like family there and that's what I want. I can't always depend on others to help me I have to grow up away from home and become the man I want to be. But I also know I will need support and when I need support with academics or with football that everyone at Utah will help me and support me and just be my family away from home. That was more important to me than where the school is or what people thought about my decision. Some people think I could have played at a bigger football school but they really don't know how good Utah is as a football program and how they are with taking care of their own." On the field, Williams expects to make an immediate impact and he feels that his skill set fits right in with the Utah offense. "I will play wide receiver there. I can run out of the slot and I will also get a shot at special teams as a returner. The whole time Utah has made me feel that I was important to their future plans and I will be able to play right away. I will get there and work hard and see what happens." Williams says there are no current plans for any other visits and he is set with Utah. If things change with Utah there is one school he would consider. "If I did take any other visits it would only be one and it would be to West Virginia. But I don't have anything scheduled or planned and I don't intend too right now. As long as Utah is good with me I am good with them. It is where I want to be."
