Williams ready for Dec. 2 visit to FSU

Standout tailback plans to enroll in college in January and make a decision in mid December.

For running back Bo Williams, the accolades have continued to roll in.

He has been named an All-American by Parade Magazine and has been invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl game and the Florida-California all-star game.

And those lofty achievements were rightfully deserved as the Oakland Park Northeast High standout rushed for over 1,200 yards and 19 touchdowns. He helped lead his team to a 6-5 record – a drastic improvement from the previous season in which they posted a 0-9 record.

With his final prep season in the books, Williams faces a ticking clock so to speak in terms of making a college decision. The 6-foot-1 and 200-pound speedster plans to enroll in college in January.

"It's exciting, I can't wait," Williams said.

Williams has narrowed down his list of schools to three and will take three official visits before making his choice on Dec. 15.

He is set to visit FSU Dec. 2 then Florida Dec. 8 and Pittsburgh soon thereafter.

So what is he looking for in Tallahassee?

"I have been up there before and I love it," Williams told RenegadeReport.com Tuesday night. "Everything about the school is great. The atmosphere is great. Of the three schools (he is set to visit), FSU feels the most like home."

Williams credits that "home-like" feel to his relationship with some of the Semino.e players.

"Oh man, Antone (Smith) and I are close and Richard Goodman, too," he said. "There are a lot of guys that I know that I used to play against."

With the way things played out for the program this season, and the uncertainty regarding the offensive coordinator position, one might think that may deter an offensive talent like Williams from Tallahassee.

That, however, doesn't appear to be the case.

"I don't know who the new coordinator is going to be but I know that the offense wil get better but won't change too much because of Bobby Bowden," Williams said. "But that's a good thing. He's one of the reasons why I like FSU."
