Desmond Williams, a key piece of of Corona (Calif.) Centennial High School's dominate football squad, has helped anchor the Huskies' defense and guided the team to a 10-0 regular season. The large quantity of highly-touted prospects around him has molded the team into a clock with many cogs, all working together as one.
"Playing with these guys is great, the 6-foot, 195-pound Williams said. "Knowing that everyone on the field can make plays and that they have my back makes every job easier."
Having committed to the Broncos in June, the standout Safety/Nickel prospect has been able to put his energy and effort toward his prep team. The lack of distraction is paying off.
"The goal is to win state, nothing less," Williams said. "I just want to just get better everyday and make plays when I need to be. I am getting ready for the next level, and my coaches do a great job at helping me with that."
That next level involves a blue turf field. Williams took his official visit to Boise State for the Wyoming game - his first ever trip to his future home - and fell in love.
"My visit was great," he said. "I was happy to just finally get down there and see everything for myself. I heard it was so great, and it was!"
"I really love the atmosphere there on game day, and the staff and players treated me like I was already going there."
Hailing from a part of Southern California known as the Inland Empire, he was already friends with Bronco freshman defensive back Evan Tyler, who is also from Corona.
Williams, who chose Boise State over a PAC-12 offer from Washington State, says his recruitment has slowed down and he communicates almost exclusively with the Boise State coaching staff.
"I talk to (them) week in and week out almost everyday," he said. "The staff is great. They brought me in with open arms and they treated me right while I was down there.
"They made my dad feel great and he feels like that's the place that wants me and that it will be a good fit for me."
Williams and the LA TImes #1 ranked (Southland Teams) Huskies put their unblemished record on the line against Chaminade High School Friday to kick off the CIF Sectional playoffs.
