Plaquemine RB counting the offers

Plaquemine's Jakouri Williams is the fifth-rated running back in the country and one of the most sought after prospects in Louisiana.<br><br>The 6-foot, 185-pound speedster has been sitting on a host of scholarship offers for a while, but he recently picked up another one from one of the up and coming teams in the Big 12 Conference.

"I've got eleven right now," Williams told Tiger Rag. "The last one I got was from Oklahoma State. I'm looking at all of them right now. I don't want to count any of them out. As I get close to my senior season I'll start narrowing it down."

While Williams said he is considering all of his offers, a handful have climbed to the top of his list.

"Tennessee, Florida State, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Ole Miss stand out," said Williams. "Tennessee, Florida State, Michigan and Nebraska get a lot of national exposure and play on TV just about every week. They also have great conditioning programs. I think Oklahoma State will compete for a national championship in the next few years and be one of the big ones in the Big 12."

One school that has yet to offer the talented running back is LSU, but the Tigers are still in the hunt.

"I haven't heard from them in a while but I get a lot of mail from them," said Williams, who is already academically qualified. "I'm still considering them if they offer. I'm not counting them out. They want me to play the slot and a little running back, and kickoff returns.

An offer could push them up because my family could watch me play."

Heading into his senior campaign, Williams said he has set two goals.

"My individual goal is to rush for 2,000 yards with no fumbles," he said. "My team goal is to win a state championship."
