Williams changes up favorites
Four-star running back Dexter Williams of Winter Garden (Fla.) West Orange was offered by Notre Dame on Feb. 24 and has since developed a close relationship with Irish running backs coach and recruiting coordinator, Tony Alford. "I talk every day with Coach Alford," Williams said. "We talk about life, football, and how I can be a big part of the offense at Notre Dame." Before Notre Dame extended an offer, Williams had a top three of Florida, Georgia and Ohio State. Now, where does the 6-foot, 190-pound back stand? "I have a top five of Ohio State, USC, Notre Dame, Miami and South Carolina," Williams said. "Notre Dame is a great football program, and I really see myself fitting in there," Williams said. "It's one of my very top schools right now. They have good running backs, and they use them a lot in the slot and on third down. That will fit well with my versatility but also my explosiveness." Williams hopes to visit Notre Dame sometime this spring, but if not, he plans on visiting South Bend, Indiana this summer. "I would like to make it for the spring game in April, but if I don't, I'll definitely visit this summer," Williams said. He also plans on visiting Miami, Ohio State and USC as well. Williams is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 24 running back in the class of 2015.
