Michael Williams Profile
"Some mornings I wake up and think I should choose Notre Dame, other mornings I think I should choose Michigan. Notre Dame has recruited me so hard--and just because of that, they probably have the slightest lead over Michigan," said Williams, who is Scout.com's No. 5 CB.
"Notre Dame wants me as a cornerback, but they said I could play safety too. I believe position takes precedence over the school, and safety is much more fun to play because I get to come up and hit people--it's the position with the harder bang. The one thing that stands out about the Irish is their school spirit.
"Michigan does seem like more of a fun place, and they did offer me first. But the thing I love most about the Wolverines is their defensive coordinator/safeties coach, Ron English, and their head coach (Lloyd Carr). Coach English knows more about football and defense and everything else than anyone I've ever met," he said.
"Northwestern came into my top five or six because I visited there and met the new head coach (Pat Fitzgerald). He was a really nice guy who knew what he was talking about. I liked his philosophy--to encompass football in relationships…but his words were better than that," Williams said.
"Arizona and Arizona State are generally nice schools, and Oregon has the resources because Nike sponsors the campus. Cal Berkeley was my newest offer, but then they don't talk to me--it's really weird.
"Out of my favorites, I've only visited Notre Dame, Michigan and Northwestern. I don't know when I'll commit because I haven't decided which school I'm going to go to yet. But I'll probably take official visits and then decide after my football season," Williams said.
He reports a 3.5 core GPA and awaits his June 3 SAT score.
