Williams, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound honorable mention all-state choice in Class 3A last year, made the trip up for one day at the Dooley Dawg High School Football Camp.

"I went up there for one day," Williams said while participating in a 7 on 7 tournament with his high school team on Saturday. "I ran the 40, did the vertical. We did some 1 on 1's and 7 on 7."

While he's been bothered recently by a groin injury, Williams said he thought he ran well at the camp, although he didn't catch his 40 time. He has been clocked at a 4.65 in the past. "The coaches told me they don't care how fast I can run," Williams said. "They know that I can catch. They said they'll take care of the rest when I get here."

Last season, Williams made his mark at both receiver and free safety. He'll still play both ways this year but is currently taking repetitions as Marksville's quarterback. J.T. Dunbar, Williams' high school coach, said if the season started today that Williams would be his starting quarterback. However, he's continuing to rep his two backup quarterbacks in the hope that he can continue to play Williams at receiver.

Williams said he hopes the backups continue to progress because it would allow him "to do what I like to do" at receiver, but he's more than willing to step behind center in Marksville's spread offense if it's the best move for the team.

The slim, smooth receiver left his one day in Ruston without receiving an offer from the Bulldog coaching staff, though he hopes one is coming soon.

"I'm very, very interested in Louisiana Tech right now," Williams said.

He's also hearing heavily from Connecticut, Texas A&M and Louisiana-Lafayette, but doesn't have any offers at the moment.

Eric Russell, the Tech assistant who recruits Central Louisiana, told Williams to stay in contact with the Tech coaching staff and they would come down to Marksville to see him soon.

"The coach who is recruiting me, Coach Russell, is going to come down to see me in either August or September. They want to see my speed. Everything else is good," Williams said.
