Williams -- who has already secured offers from IowaNebraska, and Wisconsin -- worked out at wide receiver at the Under Armour Camp in Chicago.  

"I am fast, I play aggressive," Williams said of his strengths. "I can read DBs and how they are covering me and what coverage they are in and find open spots and weak spots in their defense to allow the quarterback the opportunity to get me the ball in some space."

Last Saturday, Williams received some good news when he found out that he had picked up his third overall Big 10 Conference offer from the Badgers. 

"The summer of my freshman year I went up to Chicago for a satellite camp with Wisconsin and that is where they really saw what type of player I was," Williams said. "I really dominated one-on-ones. 

I was supposed to go up there for a June 2nd camp to work out and tour the campus and stuff like that, but I called coach Gilmore and he told me that I had an offer from Wisconsin and that he still wanted me to come up there on June 2nd to see the position that they want to nail me down as. 

"I was just excited when I heard that he was going to give me an offer and I just can't wait to get up there," Williams continued.

The Cornhuskers got the ball rolling by stepping up to the plate as the first school to extend Williams an offer. 

"Nebraska came really early," Williams said. "Nebraska was my first one. That was my freshman year, June 17th, I will never forget it, at the satellite camp, The Friday Night Lights camp.  

There are a lot of things I like about the Huskers. First off, the fans they are going to be loyal to you and they are always going to say something respectful to you when you are there, the coaches are always involved and always want to talk to you before or after the game, and the facilities are top-notch."

Williams has a pretty long list of schools also showing him an early interest. 

"Missouri, IllinoisIowa StateArkansas that is about it so far. I have gotten letter from Penn State and a bunch of other schools. Wisconsin is the only camp I have nailed down so far, but there are definitely going to be other camps that I am attending to get offered."
