"It was good. We had a good time at the game. It was a good game," Williams said. "We got a chance to visit with the team and go into the locker room after the game. It was wild. There were a whole lot of people running around hollering. I also had a chance to speak to Coach Mallory and Coach Johnson before and after the game."

Williams made the trip from Mobile to Louisville yesterday with his family and returned home Friday morning. While in town, Williams got to check out the U of L campus before watching the Cardinals dramatic second half comeback victory over the Scarlet Knights.

"We got an invitation in the mail for the game and just drove up and visited the campus," Williams said. "I liked the atmosphere, the coaches and their Biology department."

Williams, who is being recruited by U of L assistant Mike Mallory, said Louisville has talked about an offer but the Cardinals haven't extended a full ride just yet. "They said they wanted to see my tape before they do," Williams said.

Williams is currently playing a waiting game. A 3.5 student who has already scored an 18 on the ACT, Williams is hoping someone will step forward and offer a scholarship soon.

"I'm wide-open really. I'm just looking for a place to go," Williams said, who is waiting for his first offer. "I'm looking for a school that graduates their players, has a good Biology department and a good chance for me to get on the field next year."

Williams said Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisville, Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Mississippi State are currently recruiting him the hardest. "I'm looking to set up some official visits," Williams said. "I'll probably take official visits to Louisville and Louisiana-Lafayette."

Though his team finished just 2-8 this season, Williams had a solid senior campaign, registering 60 tackles and 10 sacks.
