Javon Williams down to Arkansas, UCLA

1/26/2012

Chandler (Ariz.) wide out Javon Williams is down to two schools --one that has been with him since the beginning his recruitment started in Arkansas, and one that just jumped in last week in UCLA.

The receiver visited the Razorbacks in early December and said he loved his visit. No one has recruited him harder all year than Arkansas and they were one of the first schools to offer him way back in April.

UCLA just got involved with Williams a week ago. The Bruins came by and visited him at his school and offered a scholarship and the receiver will take his final official visit to Westwood this week.

“Arkansas has an advantage because they have been with me for so long,” Williams said. “It makes it a little tougher for UCLA but I’m going to base my decision on how well the visit goes and where I feel most comfortable, not just who has been recruiting me longer. I know coach [Noel] Mazzone and Steve Broussard from when they were at Arizona State so I’m comfortable with them.

“I was born in California and have visited several times before although this will be my first trip to UCLA. I’m looking forward to it, I’ve heard a lot of great things about the campus and the school. Arkansas is a great school as well and I was blown away on my visit. They have a great offense, play in the SEC and have a need for receivers right away so it’s a good fit.”

Williams has also visited Oregon State, Arizona and Arizona State in addition to the Razorbacks. He said he plans to make his decision on signing day.
