Derrick Williams Talks About His Visit To Arizona

Derrick Williams, a 5-11, 195 pound running back from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco took his second official visit of the year to Arizona this past weekend. Here's a recap of the trip.

"I liked it, it was pretty cool up there," Williams said. "They have a real nice campus and Tucson is a nice area. It looks like it would be a place where I would be comfortable living. We went to a basketball game and the crowd support they have there is pretty incredible. It seems like the whole community really gets behind their sports teams."

Williams is rated as the 31st best running back and is also a great cover corner. The Wildcats made a good impression, but not enough of one to distinguish it from his visit to Cal.

"We also toured the campus and I liked the facilities a lot. They have a new weight room that is really nice. Overall I had a good time. Arizona is kind of like Cal (1st trip) in that I think they're both on the verge of turning their programs around and that's what I would be a part of."

Williams will visit Washington this weekend (Jan. 17) and then trip to UCLA (Jan. 24).

"I think the UCLA trip might be my last visit," Williams said. "If another school happens to pop in there, I could still take my 5th trip but I think that will be it for me. Right now, UCLA is probably still at the top. I like Coach Dorrell a lot and Coach Bieniemy is coming to my school tomorrow. They're coming over for a home visit sometime this week as well but we don't have the exact date yet."
