"Jermaine Williams leads the state of Arizona this year and carries the spotlight for the state nationally as well, at least in terms of grabbing a place on the National Hot 100 list," says Midlands/Southwest recruiting analyst Stacey Dean. "Sporting a 6-4, 247-pound frame, with 4.85 forty speed, he kid carries four star status and a height-weight-forty package that will come in handy on the next level. When you look at the vitals, you see prototypical college DE. He gets off the ball in a hurry, he's physical, and the kid flat out plays ball the way you want to see it played. One thing he needs to do, though, is put a little more effort in the classroom. Handle his business a bit better there, his star/ranking could rise even further, and he deserves that."
Four other players in the top-10 have committed. DT Jon Hargis (No. 6) and DB Brantwon Bowser (No. 10) will join Williams in Temp. No. 4 Cody Anderson has committed to the Cats, while No. 2 John Romero stunned many by choosing Nevada.
The Cats have offers out to two other in-state players. The local duo of Brooks Reed (No. 3) and Glyndon Bolasky (No. 5) are both very interested in Arizona.
