Rummel QB recaps LSU visit

Damian Williams was in Baton Rouge last month for LSU's Junior Day.

Damian Williams has been the starting man under center at Rummel for the past three seasons, and the dual-threat quarterback enters his senior season as one of the top-rated passers in Louisiana.

That alone puts the 6-foot-1, 215-pound 2013 prospect on the LSU radar, and the staff began to reach out by inviting Williams into town for Boys from the Boot, an exclusive Junior Day for Louisiana prospects held on the LSU campus last month.

"I had a really good time coming over there," Williams said. "I like the campus and the way everything with the football team is set up. The student-athletes have it really nice.

"I've always liked LSU, and visits like that just push me to like things even more. I wanted to get into town for the second Junior Day, but I wasn't able to make it. They are definitely still one of my top teams."

Williams, who is in search of his first scholarship offer, is being recruited out of the New Orleans area by running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson.

"I met with Coach Frank at the first Junior Day," Williams said. "He told me they are going to stay in touch and be recruiting me. They invited me back to come around this spring and then for camp in the summer."

Williams, who said that all schools are recruiting him as a quarterback, is hedging his bets on overtures coming after camp visits this summer.

"A lot of coaches want to see quarterbacks throw first, so I have to go to team camps for that," Williams said. "With LSU, they want me to come to camp and then go from there.

"I went to the camp last year and only stayed for a day. I want to stay a little longer this year, but I did get to meet with (quarterbacks coach Steve Kragthorpe).

"Right now they have a lot of pocket quarterbacks and are looking for someone more mobile. I think I fit that."

With one campus visit in the books, where does Williams turn from here?

"I am going to Alabama for Junior Day on Feb. 18," Williams said. "Then I will be at the LSU Spring Game, and maybe some practices.

"I am all open right now. I will plan some visits out as I talk to more coaches. Alabama, Arizona State, Colorado, Mississippi State, Auburn, Notre Dame, Tulane and Kansas State have all been sending stuff to me." .
