"He took a trip up there this weekend and we talked on Tuesday and he's decided to go to Oregon State," Toscano told TheInsiders on Friday afternoon.
Williams played as a wingback on offense and cornerback and both safety positions for Toscano. "On offense we didn't throw the ball that much," Toscano said. "We would have our counters, flys and reverses, things like that. He was quite a threat. And the most amazing thing was, he touched the ball nine times on kickoffs and returned six of them for touchdowns. He runs a legit 4.35 40."
Early interest came primarily from Boise State. "Justin was really interested in them from the beginning and the Boise State coaches were on him big time, so we didn't go out of our way to tell coaches about him," Toscano said. "But any coach that saw film was impressed. He had offers from Oregon State, San Diego State, Boise State, Louisville, Illinois, San Jose State, Idaho State and Portland State. And schools like Cal came on late in the game, but by then Justin was looking at just Oregon State and Boise State.
"I'm sure the Boise State coaches are disappointing in not getting him, but the Oregon State coaches came in and really did a good job of selling the Pac-10. He's always wanted to play in the Pac-10. He's also got family up there. On his official visit there, his brother, who lives up there went, as well as an uncle."
