Williams Set To Commit

There's no doubt as to where Houston (TX) Aldine running back Dontae Williams wants to play college football. As one of the top prep backs in Texas, Williams has his proverbial pick of the litter, but there's only one school he has on his mind right now.

Do you currently hold an offer from Oregon?

"Yes sir."

What kind of contact have you had with Oregon throughout the recruiting process.

"I call Coach (Gary) Campbell and we talk and I just let him know that I'm ready to come to Oregon."

How often would you say that you talk to Coach Campbell?

"I call him about once a week."

Has he been the coach that you've been in the most contact with?

"Yes sir."

What have your conversations with Coach Campbell been like?

"He wants to come out to some of my games and see my family and try to get that coordinated for whenever I make it out to Oregon. The first time I called him I asked him what are some things to do in Oregon and things like that and he told me one time that he's going to take me to go play golf."

What would you say your overall interest in Oregon is?

"I'm ready to commit to Oregon. I'm ready to come to Oregon already. In like two weeks, I got this deal set up that I'm supposed to commit on TV...I'm committing to Oregon and I told coach already that I'm all ready to go to Oregon."

What is it that has you interested in coming to Oregon?

"I know I have a great chance at early playing time, I like their offense -- they're one of the best and very efficient with their offense -- and of course, you cannot forget all of the free gear Oregon has to offer."

Have you taken a visit yet to Oregon?

"No sir. I'm taking my official visit the weekend when we play USC."

How would you describe yourself as a player?

"I'm strong, I ran a 4.45 this summer at one of the camps I went to, so I can't just say that I'm strong and not fast...I'm kind of a little bit of both. I'm not afraid of competition at all. That's something that I really want people to know, that I don't care about competition. I'm very competitive and I just give everything I got to win."

Would you compare yourself to anyone at the collegiate or professional level?

"No. I don't think I run like anybody. I don't think I play similar to anybody, but I admire Adrian Peterson a lot."
