The newest offer on the table for talented athlete Michael Williams of St. Bonaventure High School in Ventura, Calif., came from Northwestern. The talented Southern California star is receiving a lot of attention from Midwest schools, and was in the region recently to check out the newest school to offer, along with two old favorites in Michigan and Notre Dame.
Williams is very familiar with the Notre Dame campus as it was his fourth trip to South Bend. A friend and former teammate - defensive back Terrail Lambert - is a member of the Fighting Irish football team. "He was a senior when I was a freshman," Williams said. "It was good to see him again and look around the football program. I really enjoyed the Blue and Gold game and I got a chance to talk to the coaches."
Before heading to Indiana Williams was in Ann Arbor to take his first visit to the campus of the University of Michigan. "I really liked it and it was good to see Coach (Ron) English again," Williams said. "We talked some about where I would play at Michigan. Coach English said I could play where I wanted, but I prefer safety. He's supposed to come out to California this week."
The Wolverines have a few Golden State natives on the roster, and Williams had a chance to chat it up with them. "I talked to Johnny Sears, Chris Richards, and Eugene Germany a lot," he said. "We mostly talked about football and the school, but they all said they loved it (at Michigan)."
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Williams said he wasn't sure of his camp or combine plans at this time, though he is considering heading to the Scout.com combine this weekend in Los Angeles. A decision is still a long way off. "I'm in no hurry," he said. "I want to make sure I make the right decision and there is a lot of time left."
