Team Alabama: Darryl Williams

Mississippi State added center prospect Darryl Williams to the 2015 haul during the season. Williams has worked his way on to the Alabama All-Star game that will take on their counterparts from Mississippi on Saturday. Williams is working hard to earn his reps this weekend and to be prepared for a real battle once the two teams kick off.

"It's going be going great, but I have to improve on the little bitty things," said Williams. "This is a great opportunity knowing that I got chosen out of thousands kids around the state who wanted to play in this game as a senior."

The Alabama offensive line is loaded with SEC verbal commitments and SEC targets. Williams sees the group as a real strength on the Alabama roster.

"I feel like the offensive is coming together and playing great right now," said Williams. "Every offensive lineman out here is great, to me." Williams reports that he remains committed to Mississippi State, but that an in state school remains in touch with him.

"I feel great about my decision," said Williams. "It feels great. They had a tremendous season, but there are some little things that they can improve on and be even better next year.

"Auburn is still talking to me. I am verbally committed to Mississippi State, but I guess you could say I am sort of keeping my options open."

The Bessemer, Alabama standout reports that the men responsible for getting him to Mississippi State have done a good job building relationships with him.

"I really like Coach (Geoff) Collins. He's a great coach," explained Williams. "Coach (John) Hevesy treats me like a son. I have a good relationship with him and I am looking forward to playing for him."

Williams has not finalized his date for an official visit yet, but it looks like he will join several prospects in Starkville the weekend of January 23rd.

Once his All-Star experience in Montgomery, Alabama is complete, Williams will hang up his pads for a spell and go to work on the basketball court in hopes of helping his team earn a berth in the post season.
