A prospect to watch in 2003 is 6-foot-2, 215-pound, linebacker Kyle Williams from Bolingbrook, Illinois.
Williams will be a four-year starter on both sides of the ball for John Ivlow's Raiders. Kyle is a difference maker type talent that will be given All-American consideration as a senior.
"Iowa, Illinois and Purdue have offered so far," Williams said. "I'm hearing from a lot of schools right now. All of the Big Ten plus UCLA, Nebraska, Boston College, Miami, Alabama and Oklahoma.
"My favorites right now are Iowa, Purdue, Michigan, Georgia, Alabama, Miami and Oklahoma."
Ivlow knows a little about football playing fullback for Colorado State and receiving a Super Bowl ring with the San Francisco 49ers. Ivlow says Williams is a once in a lifetime player.
"I've seen some talented football players in my time in college and the NFL," Ivlow said. "Kyle Williams could play on Sunday, he's that good. He's lethal on the football field, a big hitter with speed."
