Williams becoming hot commodity

Kentucky has brought in hundreds of prospects to their camps over the last several weeks. Many prospects were from out of state. But one of the standouts was a local prospect, Jerry Williams.

Kentucky has brought in hundreds of prospects to their camps over the last several weeks. Many prospects were from out of state. But one of the standouts was a local prospect, Jerry Williams.

Jerry Williams helped lead Henry Clay High (Ky.) to a 10-3 record as a junior. He had a solid performance as a quarterback, throwing for 1260 yards and 16 touchdowns. Williams also ran for 884 yards and six touchdowns. While he did a great job at QB, he's been working out at wide receiver and defensive back for different schools.

Williams doesn't have a problem with that change. "It's not a problem for me to (change positions)," said Williams. "I'm an athlete, so I feel like any position a coach puts me at, so I can do a great job at it," he continued.

Williams attended camps at both Kentucky and Georgia Tech. He believes he put on a good show for both of them.

"I feel I did really good at the Georgia Tech camp. I was really competitive and went at it 100 percent every play. I made sure I did everything perfect," he said.

He also felt good about his performance at the Kentucky camp several days ago. "Coaches gave me some great feedback," he said. "They said that I did really well in the drills and in the one-on-ones. They also gave me pointers to make me a better player," he continued.

Overall, Williams enjoyed his time camping at UK. "My experience at UK was great because I like the way the coaches made it a fun atmosphere. It was serious enough to push you to be a better player and perfect my fundamentals. I also really love the facilities and the coaches," said Williams.

Williams doesn't have an offer at this time, but he feels good about the chances of one coming in the near future. "They coaches at Georgia Tech said there was a lot of talk about me in their meetings," he said. Bowling Green also hopes to bring Williams in for a visit and possibly extend an offer soon after that.

There's also a return visit to UK coming this weekend, as Williams was invited to the senior only camp that starts in Lexington today.

A decision won't likely come this summer, but Williams plans to make his choice during his senior year.
