Williams taking long look at Colorado

Williams' cousin was safety for Buffaloes several years ago.

Colorado may or may not be in Isaiah Williams' future, but the linebacker from Dallas' Skyline High School already knows plenty about the Buffaloes.

So far, Colorado is one of five schools to make an offer to Williams and he likes what he sees from CU.

"I'm thinking of Colorado because my cousin went there and he said he was real cool with (linebackers coach Brian) Cabral," Williams sad. "So, that always adds into my decision."

Williams' cousin is Dominique Brooks, who played safety for CU from 2003-06. He started 10 games and finished fourth on the team in tackles in 2004, when the Buffs played in the Houston Bowl.

When he gets to college, Williams would love to make that same type of impact. He's has several conversations with Cabral, he said.

In addition to Colorado, he has offers from Kansas State, New Mexico, SMU and Texas State.

At 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, Williams said schools have told him he could play inside or outside linebacker, but he said, "I prefer to play middle."

Although he doesn't have a lot of camps on his summer schedule, Williams said, "I'm working out really hard. I've been doing footwork, the weight room and running."

He hopes to have a college decision made before Skyline begins its 2012 season.

"I don't really have a top three or anything like that," he said. "I'll be making my decision before the season. I'm probably going to wait until (the end of) summer just to see what other offers come."

Williams added that he doesn't have plans to visit CU, but would like to see the campus soon.
