Williams to visit Louisville

Three-star safety Mykelti Williams of Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central is visiting Louisville this weekend for the Cardinals' season opener.

In back-to-back weeks, Mykelti Williams has come up with huge plays for his team when it's mattered most. Last week, Williams had the game-winning interception return for touchdown in overtime to beat Center Grove.

This week, he came up big batting down a Cathedral pass on 3rd down to help secure the win 20-17 late in the 4th quarter.

"On that play, I wanted to make them throw the deep ball. He (quarterback) was waiting on the drag, but our pressure made him throw the deep ball, and I was ready for it."

Williams boasts offers from a number of BCS programs, including Louisville, where he'll visit this weekend with his father for the Cardinals' season-opener on Monday night.

"I'm either going down Sunday or Monday, but I'm not sure," Williams said. "I may spend Monday night after the game, but I'm not sure because we have practice the next day."

Williams told Scout.com two weeks ago that he planned on waiting out his decision and taking all five official visits before making a commitment. However, could he pull that trigger as early as this weekend?

"I don't know for sure," Williams said. "It could be a possibility."

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound athlete still maintains contact with a number of schools. When asked which schools he talks with the most, he listed off seven.

"Right now, Illinois, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ole Miss, Cincinnati and Louisville."

Ole Miss is a program that Williams has had his sights on to receive an official visit.

"It's a great school and I like it down there," Williams said. "They just played a great game against Boise State, too."

For Williams, committing sooner than later could present its advantages.

"I feel like it would relieve a lot of stress for me," Williams said. "I could focus on where I'm going and not as much on other schools."

Williams said even if he were to commit somewhere in the near future, taking visits elsewhere would remain a possibility.

Williams is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 37 safety in the class of 2015.
