NC State offered a scholarship to Frankie Williams around the beginning of the summer and he has remained a priority since then.
Though Williams projects as a quality cornerback or wide receiver in college one of the reasons why he has picked up 27 scholarship offers is because of his ability on special teams. Last year for Tampa (FL) Robinson he scored seven special teams touchdowns, and college coaches love the idea of what he could bring to their team.
Williams embarked on a tour of schools, mostly in the South, earlier this summer. He visited Florida State, Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Rutgers, and said each of those trips has helped him learn more about what he wants in a college. Most of those schools haven't offered, but programs like NC State, Minnesota, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Cincinnati and almost two dozen more have.
Where does he plan on going from here? Will he be making a decision in the near future or will he drag things out closer to Signing Day?
"I plan on taking all five (official visits) but I'm not real sure yet," he told Pack Pride last week. "I don't know where I'm going yet. I want to start to narrow it down (soon)."
Though Williams said he will be narrowing things down that list will have to be trimmed down even more. He plans on keeping ten schools in mind. Will NC State be one of them?
"Basically, I'm thinking the same thing about them (State) as I am about everybody else. I've got to sit down and think about them and everybody this week and make a decision.
"I think the last time I talked to them was last week, I believe. I talked to coach Swepson and the defensive backs coach. We've talked a couple of times and we're building that relationship. All I can say is I'm gonna be cutting it down soon."
Williams, who earned all-area honors after posting 1,500 yards of all-purpose offense in addition to his play on special teams, has been recruited as an athlete by all of the colleges that have offered him.
