Williams is One to Watch

FOX Sports NEXT caught up with Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey 2014 emerging athlete David Williams to discuss his junior season, the UCLA-Nebraska game, and more...

Though Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey suffered a close loss versus Lancaster (Calif.) Paraclete, 2014 athlete David Williams had quite the showing on the field.

Williams, however, looks at the game with a team mentality and is ready to step up as a leader and help the team both overcome and grow from the loss.

"I don't really think anything in particular was a highlight; I just wanted to come out, play hard for my team. I wish we could have come out with the victory.

"I want to help our team work on our discipline. We had too many penalties, didn't play disciplined, but we're going to bounce back next week and get at Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany," he said.

Williams had a strong game on offense, defense, and special teams, and isn't sure just yet as to what position he thinks he'll continue with in college.

"I really don't know where I'll play in college; I enjoy playing both receiver and safety. At receiver, I like going out and picking up blocks for my team when they are needed, catching the ball, everything like that. Playing safety, I like to cover and come down and hit," he said.

Dorsey currently has five players with Division-1 offers, and it isn't rare for a college coach to be watching from the Dons' sidelines. Williams, however, doesn't let the pressure get to him.

"I haven't really been thinking about offers at all. Everything has been school and football, school and football. I've been waiting patiently, playing for my team, and having fun with everything," he said.

The 6-foot, 187-pound prospect has, however, been receiving interest from a few programs, including Washington, Washington State, UTEP, Ohio, California, and UCLA, and recently attended the Bruins' home-opener versus Nebraska.

"The game was fun; I loved the fight that UCLA had. One person that really impressed me was #3, the safety [Randall Goforth]; he did very well. I want to play like him this year," he said.

Though he doesn't have any plans to take visits, he does think he'll want to head north to check out the Huskies' program, where his former Dorsey teammate Jaydon Mickens plays.

"I'd like to go out there when we have a bye week," he said.
