Williams Getting Closer To ECU Offer
The night before East Carolina took the field in Gainesville, Florida, ECU coaches were spread out across Florida recruiting players. One of those players that ECU coaches watched play is tight end Zach Williams from North Marion High School (Citra, Fl.). As North Marion knocked off their rival school, Vanguard High School, the 6-foot-6, 255-pounder versatile athlete was at the heart of the offense all game long. The tight end already has a list offers that include Georgia Southern, Kentucky, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Louisville and North Carolina State. “It’s been a good process,” Williams said. “As a kid this is the place I always wanted to be in and now I’m here, it just seems surreal.” While ECU has not yet offered Williams he said that he has been talking with ECU coaches a few times a week, and likes everything that they are telling him. Williams noted that he would like to visit Greenville but he won’t be able to until after the season ends. For the athlete said that his current in ECU is an eight-out-of-ten. “I like how they played against Florida,” Williams said. “Their team is going to be good in the near future and it’s a place I could see myself playing. I was watching the offensive tackle position because I’ve been told that with my frame, once I get to college I may have to play there.” The class of 2016 recruit has the speed and ability to play the tight end positon but also feels like he can play on the offensive line and believes that he may have to at the next level. The senior considers his biggest strength on the field to be his blocking. With a list of big time offers Williams said that an offer from ECU would mean a lot to him and his family. While Williams considers all of his schools his top factor that he will look at is education. Williams would like to attend a school that will allow him to major in physical therapy and minor business. For the Florida native he said that location of the school was not a factor.
