Is Nebraska Still In It For Damian Williams?

We've managed to speak to some of the finer wide receivers that Nebraska has been pursuing and we were able to do just that once again in speaking to Arkansas' Damian Williams. Quite a bit of time has passed since Nebraska offered and we were able to get his thoughts on the Cornhuskers.

If it seems like Nebraska is once again in on several big-time receivers in 2005, that's indeed the case. Springdale, Arkansas' Damian Williams adds to the increasing list of skilled pass-catchers that the Cornhuskers are pursuing this year along with 26 other teams at this point. 

South Carolina just recently tossed their hats in the ring for Damian and join such schools as Kansas, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Michigan, Virginia Tech, Houston, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Texas Tech, Stanford, UCLA, Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Arkansas, LSU, Iowa, Louisville, Virginia, Clemson and Missouri.

Williams, much like many top prospects in the country has finished up the camps and combines and, in fact, will be beginning some tournaments with his team.  "We are starting our seven on seven stuff and we actually head out for California tomorrow (the 14th)," he said.  Williams mentioned that he's working on finding the right teams for him and should come to that conclusion before too long.  "I'm actually finishing up my narrowing process and I should have a top five by next week," he said.

While some prospects are already naming favorites or at least giving some schools an edge, Williams stands firm by each of the teams that have offered him.  "I like some things about each school and each school has their own identity.  They all have great qualities.  I'm actually looking at doing the in-depth research.  I'm going through coaching staffs, depth charts and rosters now," said Williams.

Damian reports that the Cornhuskers are still very much a part of his plans, at least for a while.  "They're still in the running.  I actually haven't talked to them in a while but I still receive correspondence and they have as good a shot as any.  I usually get mail at least once or twice a week," he said.
