Freshman LB Already Sporting Offers

This freshman from Mobile talks about his experience at the Prattville MVP Camp and his early offers.

Mobile, Ala.--For St. Paul's standout freshman linebacker Trey Williams the last few months have been a whirlwind of activity. Starting to receive interest from schools and getting his first two offers from Auburn and Florida State following a big ninth grade year, Williams was back on display Saturday at the MVP Camp at Prattville High School.

Showing good agility and quickness for a 6-1, 195-pounder that is still just 14 years old, Williams was one of the top linebackers in attendance and he said the experience was a fun one for him.

"I loved it. We had good drills and good coaches. It was competitive and there were some good players. It's just something that makes me better," Williams said. "To see everybody and see how I do against the older guys makes me want to do better later on in the season and my career.

"Now I understand what my competition is like," he added. "It makes me want to work harder and get even better so one day I can get one of those trophies (top player) when I come back."

Even though he's yet to play his first game as a sophomore in high school Williams is already becoming a hot topic on the recruiting trail. With coach Gene Chizik's Tigers and Jimbo Fisher's Seminoles already on board he said it's crazy to think about already having two offers.

"I was surprised," Williams said. "I thought I was just going up to see the schools and see how they practice, the locker rooms, etc. I talked to the head coach, coach Fisher and Gene Chizik. They both said they were offering me a scholarship. I was blown away. I didn't have anything to say. I knew I was a good player, but I didn't know I was that good. I'm not that good yet though. I still have to get a lot better."

Already with a pair of offers on the table and still three years to go before he has to make a decision, Williams said he's definitely in no rush to choose a school just yet. As far as he's concerned things are just getting started.

"It's far away," Williams said. "Making a decision is far, far away."
