Michael Williams Profile California has one of its best defensive back crops in some time, and one of the headliners is Michael Williams (5-11, 185), a safety/cornerback from state power St. Bonaventure in Ventura.
The irony is that he's getting very little interest from any in-state schools.
"Its like right now, I'm not getting a lot of interest from the California schools, or really much of the Pac-10," Williams said. "I've been offered by Arizona State, Washington and Arizona and that's it."
So Williams has shifted his focus to the Midwest, where a trio of schools, who've all offered, are standing as his top three.
"Northwestern is my newest offer. Notre Dame and Michigan already offered me. My top three are Notre Dame, Michigan and Northwestern," said Williams, who visited the three schools a week ago.
Williams has been fighting an ankle injury, which has limited him this spring, but he has shown signs of recovery, judging by his recent showing at the Nike Camp in Los Angeles, where he was one of the top players there, regardless of position.
"I was getting over my ankle, and it was my first week back, but it felt good," said Williams.
Next weekend, Williams will show his mettle at the Scout.com Combine in Los Angeles.
Williams anchored a stout Seraphs defense that was a big reason St. Bonaventure finished the year with the top ranking in California, the first ever No. 1 season-ending spot for the Seraphs.
On the year, Williams had 94 tackles from his secondary position, despite sitting for large parts of the second half during blowouts by the Seraphs.
Academically, Williams is in solid shape, holding a 3.5 GPA and scoring a 1750 on the SAT.
