Williams Ready For Season

C.J. Williams recruiting journey has been full of ups and downs. But the Baltimore, Md., Safety prospect is heading into his senior season on a very positive note. He talks to Scout.com about his summer and schools of interest.

Speedy Baltimore, Md., safety C.J. Williams' recruiting journey has been full of highs and lows so far -- but things are shaping up just in time for his senior season.

"Recruiting has been up and down," Williams said. "West Virginia is still there, I did really well at their camp. And Coach Jeff Casteel said the offer is coming."

He continued, "As for Penn State, I missed their camp, but I still get letters from them. And I really hope they offer, this season is huge for me."

The Calvert Hall College HS prospect has one goal in mind for his senior season.

"The most important thing for me this season is just to stay healthy," Williams said. "Last season I tore my MCL, but I'm completely healthy and ready to go -- as a sophomore I made all state, so I've just got to be healthy."

Even though Williams is still looking for the illusive first offer, he is confident that it will come his way soon.

"West Virginia talks to me every week," Williams said. "I talk to Coach Daron Roberts a lot and I really like them."

But the Mountaineers are not the only school interested in Williams.

"Rutgers sends me hand written essays twice a month," Williams said. "And I've been talking to Pittsburgh a lot too, so hopefully one comes through."

Football has been Williams first priority this summer, but that isn't all he is involved in at Calvert Hall College HS. "I am involved with Fellowship of Christian Athletes," Williams said. "It's a club that brings God with you, wherever you are. And I'm in an organization called Next Level Nation, which is a group of athletes that work out and go to colleges together in order to get to the next level."

Getting to the next level is exactly what Williams has been focusing on.

"It's been very busy," Williams said of his summer. "I haven't had much free time, plus I'm trying to enjoy my last year of high school."

And his final football season, Williams knows is one that will carry plenty of weight in his recruiting process.

"I know I'm one of the best players in the state of Maryland," Williams said. "I will lay it all on the line for my team every down."

He continued, "I get in other players heads, and I will change the game. I'm a leader that will make sure my team stays focused on the goal which is winning a championship."
