TSR Update: Woodbridge RB De'Antwan Williams

Maryland had quite a few visitors for last weekend's big win over California. Among them was Woodbridge (Va.) standout running back DeAntwan Williams, on whom TSR has the latest.


We caught up with Woodbridge coach Keith King for an update on Williams, a 5-foot-7, 207-pounder rated the No. 47 running back in the nation by Scout.com.

"I think he enjoyed it. That's always been a school of interest for him. I think growing up that was always his favorite school. But he's going to have to go to a school that fits his needs" academically as well as athletically, said King.

Williams, a compact speedster who is also an adept runner between the tackles, has a variety of impressive offers: Maryland, West Virginia, Alabama, Boston College, Rutgers and Virginia Tech primary amongst them. King said that chatter from earlier this summer about Williams likely committing to Alabama was premature. "I don't think it was accurate. I think anytime a young man receives an offer from a school with that type of prestige and history, you're like ‘wow.' But after a while they just become one of your schools," he said.

Williams will visit Bama soon, however, and could take as many as all five official visits. He'll also likely take officials to Maryland and WVU. The Terps continue to recruit him as hard as any of the other schools, King said, and assistant coach Al Seamonson has developed a strong relationship with him.

So far this season, Williams has rushed for 520 yards and 11 touchdowns in three games. TSR will keep you posted …
