Coming Soon

Springdale standout Damian Williams hasn't made a decision yet, but has plans to do so in the near future.

There has been some speculation that Springdale wideout Damian Williams has decided where he is going to go to college, but just not yet announced it.

Williams (6-1, 185, 4.4), who had over 900 all-purpose yards and 8 touchdowns for the Red Bulldogs last season, said Sunday night that's not the case.

"I haven't picked a place out yet and I am still at five," Williams said. "I have now been to all five places I am still considering and looked them all over. My family and I have been talking about it this weekend and praying and I hope to make the decision before too long, but I don't have one yet."

What about the speculation that he is headed to join teammate Ben Cleveland at Florida or that he might be headed with Springdale quarterback Mitch Mustain and fellow wideout Andrew Norman at Arkansas?

There's even been one report he is headed for Iowa, who joins Arkansas, Florida, LSU and Texas in the final five from a batch that had 27 offers.

"I think it is very interesting to read to hear and read all the things from people who know where I am going to go - or the rest of us - because they've talked to cousins, uncles, nephews and stuff like that," Williams said. "We laugh about it because a lot of it is not true. I would say people shouldn't believe half of what they hear about us."

Williams did take what will likely be his final research mission before making a decision when he came up to Arkansas campus on Thursday night.

"I went on more of academic visit as we toured the College of Business and also watched a little bit of film,"Williams said. "It was a very nice visit. Now that I have looked over everything I hope to make a decision and get on with two-a-days and focus on our team playing the season."

Williams averaged 17.6 yards per catch while hauling in 31 passes for 545 yards and four touchdowns and also had an average of 7.2 yards per carry.

Williams, whose team gets practice underway on Monday, says he has not pressured by any of the schools to go ahead and make a decision.

"I think pretty much got as much time as I would like," Williams said. "No ones mentioned any deadlines. I hope one day soon it will just hit me and then I will announce it. I don't think I will narrow it down from five. I think I'll just get to one and that will be it."
