Williams adds his first Pac-12 offer
By Erik McKinney
David Williams (Los Angeles/Dorsey) has been so active on the 7-on-7 circuit this spring that he's looking to slow things down two days before the official start of summer.
Fortunately for him, he put in one final outing this week, as he participated in a Colorado camp yesterday and was told to call head coach Mike MacIntyre this morning, when he collected an offer from the Buffaloes. It's the first Pac-12 offers for Williams, who adds it to offers from Hawaii, Idaho and Yale.
"It feels really good," Williams said of his first BCS offer. "It's a blessing."
It was the second camp in less than a week for Williams, who was in Detroit last weekend for the Sound Body Sound Mind camp, where he was awarded Wide Receiver MVP honors.
"I went out there and did pretty well," he said. "I talked to Illinois and Michigan, and those two schools really loved what I was doing. They said they'd take a look at my film and they want me to keep in contact with them."
Williams only worked at wide receiver during that camp, though he worked at and was offered as a safety by Colorado. The 6-foot-1, 189-pound athlete still isn't sure what position is best for him at the next level.
"I don't know where I'm going to play," he said. "A lot of schools are recruiting me for different positions. There are some schools I have offers from that I don't know what position it's for."
Williams could participate in next week's B2G Elite Camp at UCLA, and his Dorsey team has a passing tournament at Saugus (Calif.) High School, but Williams is looking for something of a break at this point from what has been a grueling off-season schedule.
"I'm pretty done right now," he said. "I'm just ready to play some football. I'm getting tired of this 7-on-7 stuff."
Williams doesn't have plans for any more unofficial visits and hasn't yet turned his full attention toward official visits, either. He said he would like to wait and see if any additional offers come in before setting up any visits, but he does have a few in mind.
"I know I'm going to visit Yale for sure," he said. "Maybe I'll take one to Hawaii, but I don't have anything set up."
