Arizona Wide Receiver Confirms Visit To OSU

Wide receiver Javon Williams of Chandler, Ariz., was just named to the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl to be played Jan. 3 in Phoenix, Ariz., and he took the opportunity to speak with Scout's Jason Jewell on his recruiting progress.

The 6-4, 185-pound big wide receiver finished his senior season with 33 receptions for 923 yards (an average of just under 28 yards a catch) with seven touchdowns. He accomplished all this despite an aggravating ankle injury.

"I was surprised when I got called and told I was in the Semper Fi Bowl," Williams told Jewell during an interview. "I was real excited because my high school coach (Shaun Aguano) is coaching quarterbacks in the game and I wanted another game to play with my coach.

"My first year of high school football was just last year and when I stepped on the field I didn't know if I was capable or if I was any good," continued Williams in hi visit with Jewell. "Then we were in a passing league and in a tournament and I had a good day, and then on a key play the coaches wanted to see if I could handle it and they threw me a jump ball and I went up and made the play."

Williams said he has already made official visits to Arizona and Arkansas.

"I'm scheduled to make a visit to Oregon State on Jan. 13 and then on Jan. 20 I am going to visit Oklahoma State," Williams said to Jewell. "I am also going to set up something with Oregon."

Williams also stated what he is looking for and he is consistent as it is similar to what he told us a month ago.

"I'm looking for a family atmosphere that will allow me to focus on football and school," Williams said during the interview. "I'm looking for some place that passes the ball and will help get me to the next level."
