"In Awe"

B.C. Rain defensive back Ryan Williams is one of the top athletes in Alabama for 2007. Williams was in Tuscaloosa for the Tide's A-Day game, and he talks of the upcoming combine as well.

"The visit went real good," said Ryan Williams from Mobile, (Ala.). "The fans were showing a lot of love. I felt real comfortable there. All the people were treating me like I was already there."

"The crowd was amazing. It's hard to describe how I felt. I was in awe. I had chills when I walked in the stadium."

"I was really impressed with the fans. They are loyal. Keith Brown [Alabama junior wide receiver] told me no matter the scoreboard the fans would be there cheering for the team until the end of the game."

When asked his thoughts of the Tide's final scrimmage of the spring Williams replied, "Even though it was only a scrimmage it felt like a real game. There was a lot of energy out there on the field."

Alabama has not offered a scholarship, but the Tide coaches plan to continue with their evaluation.

"The coaches were showing me a lot of attention when I got there," Willaims said. "Coach Randy Ross showed me around when I arrived yesterday. I thought the facilities were great. That was a big plus for me."

"I talked to coach [Chris] Ball for a while. He told me I would have the chance to play early if I came to Alabama. They said they will come to see me this spring. They are coming the second week of spring training and for our spring game."

The 5-11, 185-pound cornerback is not naming favorites, but added, "Alabama moved up a lot. My parents love it there. They've always liked Alabama. I still don't have an overall favorite, but now that I visited I really like them a lot."

"I will probably wait until this summer before I name a favorite."

The Scout.com All-American Combine in Tuscaloosa April 29 is all the talk of the high school prospects around the state. They look forward to showcasing their skills and competing with other elite prospects.

"I chilled with Christian Smith [Huffman receiver] this weekend in Tuscaloosa," Williams said. "We kicked it, but come April 29--it's on."

Ryan Williams will have a feature story on the national Scout.com Combines home page Tuesday morning. Williams talks of the combine in Tuscaloosa and his plans for complete domination.
