ELK GROVE, Calif. -- It's tough to get pub down in Merced, Calif., but after winning the Passing Down Central California Regional 7on7 event on Sunday, quarterback Tyrone Williams is starting to become a bit of a name out West.
Washington, UCLA, Boise State and Missouri have been in contact with the 6-foot-4, 202-pounder out of Merced High, after he threw for 2,258 yards last season and ran for 482, but they're "still kind of just looking," Williams said.
The most constant force in his recruitment, though, has been Arizona.
"I like their offense, that spread offense, and it's close to where my family originated from. My family's from Yuma," Williams said.
An offer from the Wildcats may be in the works, as the coaching staff has told Williams to call them. on April 15.
Williams considers himself a dual-threat quarterback, but in his heart of hearts, he's definitely a pass-first signal-caller. That's why this offseason, he's trying to focus on being more comfortable on the run.
"I'm definitely focusing on running more, because I've had a problem with running," Williams said.
