2013 Top Prospect: David Williams

Top 2013 tailback prospect David Williams certainly passes the look test, and a check of his sophomore film also indicates his talent is top-shelf as well. The young star is a product of West Philadelphia Catholic High School, and a name to remember in the coming years.

One of the top 2013 prospects in the state of Pennsylvania is West Philadelphia Catholic's star tailback David Williams. After rushing for nearly 1,000 yards as a sophomore, and splitting time with two others, Williams has established himself as a prospect of note.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound, tailback created a stir last year as a sophomore by rushing for 924 yards on only 100 carries, and scoring 17 touchdowns in the process.

"My sophomore season was great, even though I didn't really start playing a lot until the third game," Williams stressed. "The first game they let me start I ran for over 100-yards and then I was in the rotation the rest of the year. I split the carries with two other seniors, so I should get the ball more this coming season. I would describe myself as a power back with good speed."

"I still have two years of high school football left and I have a lot to learn," he added. "I need to get bigger, faster, stronger, and just plain get better at everything. I'm driven to be the best, and I try to work as hard as some of the players I know that have gone on to play at the next level."

Even though he still is just a high school sophomore, Williams admits that playing college football is his dream and he is already looking ahead to that day.

"I definitely want to play college football and I will probably stay in this part of the country, so my family can come see me play," he admitted. "I like Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Penn State and Ohio State the most right now, and Ohio State was my favorite team since I was a little kid."

His attraction to the Buckeye program is also fueled by the friendship he has with current Ohio State wide receiver Corey Brown, out of Springfield Cardinal O'Hara.

"Ohio State has always been my favorite team and then when Corey went there I thought that was pretty cool," he explained. "We played for the same little league team and became good friends. We stay in touch and text each other all the time."

"He loves it there and he's always telling me I need to come there too," Williams added. "I've never been there before, but I would like to get over there to see them play. I might try to get over there for camp this summer, but I need to see how things go."
