LB Shows Skills at Auburn Football Camp

A talented prospect from Georgia, who is making a position change as a senior, is one of the players who stood out at an Auburn University summer football camp. Marshall "Scottie" Williams discusses his visit to check out the Tigers.

Lilburn, Ga.--One of the more impressive linebackers at Auburn's two-day football camp, Marshall Williams, is a prospect getting looks from a variety of colleges.

Williams, who is transferring to Southwest DeKalb from Parkview High for his senior season, says the road trip to Auburn was worth the time and effort.

"I think it was a real competitive camp," he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I had a solid performance and I enjoyed it."

Williams, who is known as "Scottie," showed the ability to run well and did an excellent job of covering running backs and tight ends in passing drills. The linebacker says he has a best time of 4.5 in the 40-yard dash and notes that he weighs in at 6-2 1/2, 205 pounds.

"At the camp, I got to work against a lot of talented players," he says. "When you go against players like that, it is good for you because you have to raise your game."

A starter at defensive end last year as a junior at Parkview, he is expected to be a key linebacker at Southwest DeKalb, which is known for turning out talented prospects season after season. "I wasn't there last year at that school, but from what I have seen there is a lot of talent and a lot of speed for the coming season," Williams says.

The linebacker works out at Auburn's camp.

Williams, who runs the 200 and 400 in track, was a standout performer at the Combine in Atlanta. He notes that he hopes to get a scholarship offer from Coach Tommy Tuberville's Tigers.

"Right now I have offers from Vanderbilt and North Carolina," he says. "A lot of schools are waiting until this summer is out. I am pretty excited about that."

Commenting on the camp experience at AU, he says, "The coaches are really good. They work with you one on one and show you the ins and outs of the game that help you improve. I really like the coaches at Auburn."
