"I'm getting ready to drive up to Gainesville with my mom for Friday Night Lights," Williams said. "The coaches at Florida gave me a verbal offer but I haven't gotten the letter yet. I wanna go up there and show them what I can do."

Williams, 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, has the Gators at the top of his list of current favorites.

"Florida's number one," he said. "I'm here and I'd love to stay close to home for college. Plus, I've liked them since I was little. After Florida, there's Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Indiana, Nebraska, and Minnesota and those five schools have offered me."

The talented running back was asked what factors will be most important to him when making a final decision.

"It'll be the way they run their offense," he said. "I wanna know if the team is close and also the academics are real important to me."
