Williams looking at options

Georgia running back Stanley Williams has been hearing consistently from Arizona. Read on for his thoughts on the Wildcats, his recruiting process, and more.

Monroe (Ga.) George Walton Academy running back Stanley Williams is one of the most talented players in the 2014 class and he has the offer list to prove it.

The 5-foot-9, 190-pound back is still in the early stages of the recruiting process and is currently focused on track.

"Right now I'm working on running and getting ready for a track meet coming up," Williams said. "I'm hopeful I can finish at some of the meets, but either way I'm getting faster and that will help me next season on the football field.

"Basically I'm trying to get better at everything during the summer, especially my strength and speed. Just because I'm playing another sport doesn't mean I'm not training and trying to get better at football because that is the sport that I will pursue at the next level."

Arizona is looking to lure the talented running back out west.

"Arizona has let me know they're very interested in me," Williams said. "Right now we're just trying to build a relationship with each other, but everything is going well."

As of now, the recruitment is in its early stages, as Arizona is telling him how he would fit in.

"They are just letting me know what the offense they're running is and what they are trying to get done on the field."

Williams has only visited one school so far and is taking his time with the recruiting process.

"It's still early in the process and the only visit I've gone on is to my home state school," Williams said. "Other than that, I don't really have a list of favorites or anything like that.

"Right now I'm planning on taking all five visits, but I suppose that could change if I'm ready to commit. I'm not just going to drag on the recruiting process if it's unnecessary."

As of now, Williams knows that academics will play a large role in his decision.

"I want to major in something in sciences," Williams said. "It's important for me to get that degree, so when I'm done playing football I have something to fall back on and pursue in the next phase of my life."
