Williams visiting Louisville this spring?

Louisville pulled Mike Privott and Boogie McCray out of Norfolk (VA) Lake Taylor this year. While Privott and McCray have plenty of talent, 2010 LB/DB Travis Williams might be the best of the bunch. Will Williams make another visit to Louisville in the next few weeks.

For an elite level athlete likeTravis Williams having a bevy of powerhouse programs chasing your commitment is almost second nature. Yet with all the attention he is receiving, Williams says he is concentrating more on his other responsibilities at the moment.

"Recruiting has been going well lately but right now I am not really concentrating on it right now. I and hitting the books really hard as well as the weight room so I will be ready for college when it is my time," said Williams.

Williams is piling up scholarship offers after a strong junior campaign.

"I am up to about 14 offers right now. The teams that are showing me the most love right now are North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Penn State, Oregon, LSU, and West Virginia," said Williams.

Of course, Williams is quite familiar with the Louisville program after making an unofficial visit with Privott last fall. It appears that a return trip to Louisville may be in the works.

"I think I might fly down with Privott and Boogie (McCray) for the spring game at Louisville. I was also supposed to go to Virginia Tech's junior day on the 28th, but I am attending a Scout.com event at Rutgers that weekend so I might not make it," said Williams. "I am not sure about anything else right now, but I will be attending Penn State's camp also."

Are Privott and McCray trying to help Williams with his decision?

"Yeah they are trying to get me right now. They tell me about it and want me to be there. But I am just looking for the school that suites me," said Williams. "I am not going to make my decision just because a school was the best decision for my teammates. Not that I am doubting Louisville though because it is a great place. But right now I am not leaning toward any one school."

With off-season conditioning in full swing, Williams is trying to become an even more dominant defender.

"I want to concentrate on my speed because I have been watching the NFL combine and the forty times for the DB's have not looked that good. That is probably the position I will play in college. I am also working on my upper-body to get stronger for the college game," said Williams. "The coaches really like the way I use my hands as a defender. They like my versatility to play all over the field."

Though he is still in the fledgling stages of his recruitment Williams has a pretty good idea of when he will be ready to announce his decision.

"I think I am going to get invited back to US Army All-American game this year so I am looking to make my commitment there. I was second team all-combine last year at the junior All-American camp in Texas," said Williams.
