The state of New Jersey was "very very good" to Coach Hayden Fry and staff throughout their Big Ten Championships in the 80's, and now that Coach Ferentz has started to get the program headed into that direction there seems to be the same philosophy being used. In fact, Coach Darrell Wilson was hired in large part to help the efforts of recruiting on the east coast. One area that strikes as the most important appears to be the Camden, NJ area, and you should not look too much further than WR Byron Williams.
"Minnesota is the latest offer," Byron said. "In fact, I set-up an official visit there on November 9th or 16th. We have a playoff game on the 15th so although I'd like to see Minnesota and Iowa play, I think I'll probably visit on the 9th when we have a bye week. I have officially visited Purdue, and I will most likely make my official to Rutgers this upcoming weekend.
With Byron's visit to Minnesota upcoming in November, that means not to expect a decision anytime in the next two weeks. However, Byron will not be going past Thanksgiving before announcing where he wants to attend.
"I will make my decision known shortly after I return from Minnesota," Byron added to HTO.com very proudly. "I feel good about my choices now, but I think after that last visit I should have no question about where I want to attend school."
Now the Hawkeyes just completed their biggest game of the year, and you can better believe Bryon was among the large group watching the game on ESPN.
"I went crazy over the game. Everyone at school kept saying Iowa would not be able to beat them. I'll be collecting my bragging rights on Monday."
Byron has had a very successful season in helping undefeated Camden Catholic. Byron has 24 receptions for around 450 yards and four touchdowns. He also has been a key performer on the defensive side of the ball with 18 tackles and one interception. Not to mention, he also is the return specialist for Camden Catholic.
HTO.com informed all that Camden Catholic Sophomore WR/CB accompanied Byron Marcus Wilson on his official visit. Marcus made the visit to see his uncle, Hawkeye LB Coach Darrell Wilson. Marcus is already putting a name out there as one of New Jersey's elite sophomores; including two interceptions against city rival Woodrow Wilson.
