Williams planning official visits

Three-star safety Mykelti Williams of Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central talks about his most recent visit to Louisville, the potential destinations for his official visits, and the major factors that will play deciding factors in his final decision.

Safety Mykelti Williams of Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central isn't ready to close the door on his recruitment just yet.

"A lot of schools are still in the mix," Williams said. "It's Ole Miss, Louisville, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, and there's a few others."

There was speculation that the 6-foot, 197-pound safety could make his final decision before the start of his senior season. However, Williams has decided to take advantage of his official visits.

"I'll take all five official visits and probably decide on signing day or sometime after the season," Williams said. "I want to experience the campuses for the whole two days and get to know the coaching staffs better."

This summer, Williams took visits to Indiana, Louisville, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Purdue. His most recent visit was to Louisville.

"It was my first time there and it went really well," Williams said. "I feel comfortable with all of the coaches. Coach 'K' (Klenakis) is very vocal with me and he's playing a big role in my recruitment."

Williams has yet to schedule any dates for official visits, but he does have two schools in mind that will receive a trip from him.

"Louisville and Ole Miss are the only two I know for sure right now that are getting official visits," Williams said.

For Williams, his relationship with the coaches will be a distinguishing factor in where he commits to school.

"Mainly, it will the coaching staff and how I gel with them," Williams said. "Secondly, the players... Education is also one of the biggest things with me. I want to major in business and something in the sports agency. Another factor is playing time and seeing if I can play a role on the team to win a national championship."

However, don't expect Williams to release a list of top schools any time soon, or at all, for that matter.

"I don't have any (leaders)," Williams said. " I probably won't come out with any. I don't want to put that on the schools. I don't want to be like this is my top five and then end up committing somewhere else."

Williams is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 37 safety in the class of 2015. He'll star in a loaded secondary for Warren Central.

"This year I want to be a great leader for my team. These guys work hard. They push me every day and I push them. Without them I probably wouldn't in the position that I'm in."
