Williams Is A Junior To Watch

The top player in the city of Lima could be junior linebacker Jamiihr Williams of Lima Senior. Williams put in an impressive showing at this year's Scout.com combine and already has some quality programs showing interest.

A player who opened plenty of eyes at this year's Scout.com combine in Louisville (Ky.) was linebacker Jamiihr Williams of Lima Senior. Williams, who is entering his junior season, ran a 4.78 40 and a 4.19 shuttle at 6-1, 206 pounds.

Williams is already receiving attention from some of the area's top programs. He camped this year at the University of Michigan.

"I was invited up to Michigan so I went up there," he said. "Most of the players there are going to be seniors. I also like Ohio State, West Virginia, Penn State, Notre Dame." 

  I have a 2.8 with a 17 ACT which gets me past the clearinghouse but I am not satisfied with that. I will be taking it again. I know I can do better. I want to make my decision before the season starts next year. I don't want to wait around. I will be looking at academics and how I fit in. That will tell me where I want to go.

Lima Senior has struggled in recent years but Williams says there is plenty returning from last year's team.

"We started two-a days last Wednesday," Williams said. "We will break camp Thursday I think. We scrimmage Defiance next Saturday then the Saturday after that we scrimmage Piqua. We have a lot of players back. We were very inexperienced last year."

Williams will be a bit of a jack of all trades for senior this year.

"I am playing outside LB," he said. "On offense, I am playing RB-QB-WR. I weigh 212 right now at about 6-2 or 6-2 1/2. I have been told I could be a DE at the next level. I kind of played as a rush end last year but this year I might be used where I can drop back and cover."

Williams is listed as one of the top juniors to watch in Ohio High Magazine.
