Arkansas Wows Williams

Chandler (AZ) High School wide receiver Javon Williams (6-5, 180) never expected to fall in love with Arkansas as much as he did on his official visit - so much that he plans to come back on his own dime on Jan. 13.

Chandler (AZ) High School wide receiver Javon Williams enjoyed his official visit to Arkansas so much last week that he's planning to come back on his own dime.

"It was just a fantastic visit and far exceeded what I thought it was going to be," Williams said. "I thought it was just going to be a bunch of hills and farms and it wasn't. Fayetteville is a great city and the area was just so nice.

"You put that together with a great school and football program and I was just blown away by it all," Williams added. "I've decided I am going to come back out there on an unofficial on Jan. 13th. I just loved it and want to see some more."

Williams (6-5, 180) admits it was hard not to just go ahead and commit on the spot.

"I love it and I almost just called everything off right there and committed," Williams said. "But I thought that I probably needed to take at least one more visit and compare things. The only thing I worry about is losing my spot. I am going to just think on it a bit. Arkansas was just outstanding."

Williams has now taken official visits to Arizona State (currently without a coach) and Arkansas while Oregon State, Oregon and Oklahoma State.

"I have decided to eliminate Oregon State," Williams said. "I am going to try and get to Oregon, but I am definitely going to come back to Arkansas and plan to go to Oklahoma State on Jan. 20."

Williams, hosted by current Razorback, fellow Arizona native and family friend, Kelvin Fisher had 32 catches this season for a whopping 923 yards and seven touchdowns this season.

"Arkansas talked to me about how they had three receivers that would be leaving to go to the NFL and how there was an opportunity for a big-time receiver to come and step right in," Williams said. "Obviously their offense is perfect for a wide receiver to come in and showcase his talents if he works hard in practice."

The fact that Razorbacks Joe Adams, Jarius Wright and Greg Childs are all expected to be selected in the 2012 NFL draft certainly has Williams' attention.

"It's clear that they know how to take your talent and develop it and get you in position to play on that next level," Williams said. "That really has me fired up about the opportunity to play there."
