Last fall when Belleville High played Dearborn High, there was no shortage of talent on the field.
Michigan State assistant Mark Staten was in attendance watching Spartan commit Mustafa Khaleefah among the many other prospects, and there was actually a somewhat unknown recruit at that time who caught his eye named Davion Williams.
Then a junior, Williams had only just picked up football at the urging of head coach Jermain Crowell. Prior to that, he was a basketball player only. The football decision was a good one as Staten recently returned to Belleville and eventually offered Williams, who now adds Michigan State to a fast-growing offer list which also includes Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa State and more.
"Coach Staten was at the Dearborn game last year and asked me about him then and I said 'Davion's a freak,'" Crowell said. "He came back through [this spring] and asked me what I think about him and I told him he was a Michigan State guy and he fits with what they are doing and that he could be a pro."
When he was playing basketball, playing for Tom Izzo and the Spartan hoops team was a goal for Williams, now that has not changed much even with the move to football.
"That was his dream school," Crowell said. "I know he wants to take some visits and his dad wants him to take some visits, but that's his dream school."
Williams is scheduled to visit Indiana this weekend.
