Sylvester Williams On The Road With Visits

Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College defensive tackle Sylvester Williams is very likey heading to All-American status after a fine sophomore season for the Red Ravens, who finished play last weekend by losing 20-14 to College of DuPage (Ill.) in the Graphic Edge Bowl inside the UNI Dome in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

In that game, the 6-3, 320-pound Williams had three tackles, two unassisted, a tackle for loss and a blocked kick. On the season he had four blocked kicks to go with 49 total tackles, 17 unassisted, 11.5 tackles for loss, two passes broken up, a forced fumble, and two sacks.

"I had a good season but I expected more out of myself,"' said Williams. "I am proud of the effort I gave, and yes, those blocked kicks are special."

Williams, speaking from his home in Jefferson City, Mo., and surrounded by family the night before Thanksgiving, said he is pretty well set on his recruiting right now.

"North Carolina, USC, Oklahoma State, and Ole Miss, those are my four top schools and I think I will end up at one of those," said Williams.

"I am getting a lot of schools coming on late. I went to North Carolina earlier this week and it went real good. I got to meet a lot of really good players and some great coaches.

"I am going to visit USC this weekend. I leave Friday," continued Williams of his schedule. "Then I am going to Oklahoma State and Ole Miss in December. I am also looking at Georgia."

Williams is actually scheduled for Oklahoma State on Dec. 10. He is also a mid-term graduate, so he can sign in December and be in school for the spring semester.

"I will be in school for the spring semester," he emphasized. "Playing time right away is really important to me along with the opportunity to be an immediate impact player. Also, I want the opportunity to play at the next level."

Williams recently won the Reb Russell Memorial Award at the Coffeyville football banquet as one of the top out of state players. He is going to be a prize for somebody in recruiting because he really moves well for his size as evidenced by those blocked kicks. He is also very strong.
