Williams close to a decision

North Carolina quarterback prospect Marquise Williams will announce his college choice in July. GBW spoke with his father for some insight into the decision and the schools his son is considering.

In just two weeks Michigan, Clemson and Virginia Tech will all soon know if they have reeled in Marquise Williams, one of the top dual quarterbacks in the country.

July 10, to be exact, his father Bernard Whiteside told us will be the day his son will make his public commitment.

"We are just very excited for Marquise," Mr. Whiteside said. "He has really worked hard for this and we are quite proud of him. He is ready to make this decision and it is a decision that he made ... it was up to him to choose a college."

Both father and son have visited two of the three schools on his list, but Mr. Whiteside said all are on even ground with the way they have handled the recruitment of Marquise.

"We have had the chance to visit V-tech and Clemson. Michigan is the one school that we have not visited. But all have recruited my son very well -- we are comfortable with all the schools in his top three.

Mr. Whiteside gave us a little insight as to what he thinks about each school.

Michigan- We really like the way Coach Tony Dews has been coming at us with everything.

North Carolina- We have a lot of love for Coach Davis as well as the respect he has shown my son.

Virginia Tech- They are so live over there, the fans really love their team and they are showing Marquise love.

The enthusiasm in Marquise Williams' family is building each day. Just nine days are left until one school will know that they have a pretty special kid in the fold.
