Is Many RB in the picture for LSU?

Earlier reports on Network and other Internet sources indicated running back Darnell Williams of Many had narrowed his choices down to LSU and Auburn and was drawing strong interest since having improved his standardized test score. But the head football coach at Many provided Tiger Rag with information that refutes this report and others.

Williams will most likely attend a junior college with the intent that it will lead to a position with LSU at some time in the future, coach David Feaster told Tiger Rag. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Williams still lacks the needed standardized test score to attend a Division I school.


Feaster said LSU offensive line coach George Yarno told him that LSU had a "moral obligation" to give Williams a scholarship if he successfully completed junior college.


"Yarno said that if he was still there, and (head coach Nick) Saban was still there, (Williams) would definitely get a scholarship," Feaster said. "With that assurance, he's looking very close at Hines County Junior College — that's who LSU put him on to."


Williams is also looking to visit Louisiana Tech, who is considering signing him as a partial qualifier. However, Feaster says that Williams is leaning heavily toward Hines with the hopes of reaching LSU in two years.


In his senior season at Many, Williams posted over 1,700 rushing yards and 30 touchdowns. He has been clocked at 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash and has a 31.6-inch vertical leap.
