Williams recaps his day at Michigan State

What type of day did Berrien Springs (Mich.) defensive end Jhonathon Williams have at Michigan State on Saturday?

Teammates Nick Padla and Jhonathon Williams made the trip to East Lansing to spend some time at Michigan State and learn more about any opportunities they may have with the Spartans.

What did Williams learn about his future with the Green & White?

"The day went pretty well and I liked it a lot. We got there and the team was already out on the practice field, so we caught them going through stretches and getting ready for the scrimmage.

"I'm pretty sure I can earn an offer. At least I'm hoping to as it would possibly mean that I'm done or at least a very, very, very high chance of being done with the recruiting process."

While on campus, Williams made sure to take in all the scrimmage had to offer and catch up with his main recruiting coach.

"Coach (Mark) Staten is my recruiting coach and he just talked with me as to what is going on in our high school program," explained Williams. "He asked me about my weight and what I've been doing as far as my lifting and everything.

"I then went over and to the defensive side and was listening in to what Coach (Pat) Narduzzi and Coach (Ron) Burton were saying."

While Williams was busy learning more about his possible future as a Spartan, he knows it was just a short time ago he caught the attention of college coaches while attending his only camp at Michigan State.

"I'm still pretty new to it all," he said. "Michigan State was my first camp and that was how everyone found out about me like Toledo, Missouri and now Duke, who I heard from (Saturday). I'm not sure they are going to offer, but they said they are very interested and I'm thinking they are in the process and going to."

Despite having not really grown up a huge college football fan, Williams understands an offer from the Spartans is special and likes what he's seen so far.

"I like the coaches at Michigan State as they have really good coaches that push you and keep you going," said Williams. "All in all, it's Michigan State and its big-time football. When you grow up in Michigan, Michigan State and Michigan are the two big schools. I didn't really grow up a fan as I was more into basketball. Football is all just staring to happen so I don't really have a college team."
