Name: Rufus Williams
Hometown: Titusville, Florida
High School: Astronaut High School
Position: Defensive End
NOTES: Williams bursted on to the scene as a junior when he recorded 87 tackles, 14 sacks, 35 tackles for losses and two fumble recoveries. He was named to the 3A All-State Team, and was also selected to the Orlando Sentinel's 1st Team All-Brevard County squad. The Orlando Sentinel has rated Williams the #15 overall prospect in the state of Florida going into the '06 campaign and he is a member of the Scout.com Preseason Florida Top 101.
Williams already has offers from Ole Miss, Alabama, Tennessee, FIU, Colorado, West Virginia, North Carolina State, and USM. After committing early to Ole Miss, he has since backed out of the verbal and reopened his recruitment.
WILLIAMS QUOTE: "I just win with quickness. That's the most important thing and I've got it. Plus, I know how to use my hands pretty well."
SCOUTING REPORT: "[Williams] played primarily defensive end as a junior and had an outstanding season. He played linebacker in the spring and wasn't as active so he'll likely project as a down lineman in college." -- Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Mike Bakas
