Williams visiting Buffs

The Colorado football program welcomes its first official visitor for the 2009 season this weekend as it takes on Wyoming. Scout.com spoke with the prospect today as he prepares for his trip to Boulder. Get inside for more.

Lowell Williams, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound defensive end/linebacker from Marshall High School in Missouri City, Texas, said he is scheduled to visit the Buffs this weekend.

Williams said his only scholarship offers at this point are from Colorado, Rice and Texas-El Paso, but he is communicating regularly with other programs such as Utah, Minnesota, Army and Navy.

He made an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt in the spring and considers Commodores an option as well, despite not receiving a scholarship offer yet.

If Williams decides to come to Colorado beginning next summer, he wouldn't have to swap out much of his high school gear for college. The mascot of his high school team is also a Buffalo.

Williams, a three-star prospect on Scout.com, said he is looking for the right chemistry in whatever program he ultimately chooses.

Williams didn't seem concerned about the Buffs' slow start to the season. He said he's eager to see the team play on Saturday.

"I think the team is good," he said. "They seem like they have good team chemistry. They're always staying positive and ready to play."

Williams said he is interested in seeing the Colorado campus and is considering a degree in engineering. He carried a 3.2 GPA into his senior year.

Williams said he is interested to see how the Buffs play together and how the coaches develop players within the game. He said what happens on the field is only part of what will factor into his decision in the end.

Williams said his team is off to a slow start this season and he is working on becoming a better leader. He said he wants to be a more vocal player and team leader at the college level as well

"I want to find a way to reach out and help them want to play football as well as I do," Williams said of his current team. "Not just in football but in life as well."

Williams made 53 tackles, three sacks and 11 quarterback hurries during his junior year. He would likely play outside linebacker at the college level.
