NJ WR May Visit PSU

WR/CB prospect Ray Williams has an offer from Penn State, and is contemplating taking an official visit to State College. Coach Fran Ganter has been actively recruiting him of late.

Name: Ray Williams
Position: WR / CB
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 170 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.5
Bench Press: 235 pounds
School: Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School, Scotch Plains, New Jersey

Ray Williams started at both WR and CB this season for Scotch Plains-Fanwood.

"We finished 8-3.  We lost in the second round of the playoffs to West Morris.

"I love both positions, but I like wide-receiver the most.  I'm being recruited as a wide-receiver.  I had 9 touchdowns and 7 interceptions."

Ray attended a Nike Camp this year at Rutgers, as well as a football camp at Syracuse.

He has already taken 3 of his official visits, and has another one scheduled in January.  He may use his last official visit to see what Penn State has to offer.

"I went to Virginia (11/30), North Carolina (12/7) and Iowa (12/14).  I have another visit set up to Purdue on January 11.  I'm not sure about the last visit.  I'm deciding between Maryland, Penn State, Georgia and Georgia Tech.  After my Purdue visit, I'll decide.

"All of those schools have offered.  I'd say I have about 20 offers."

Is he definitely planning to take a 5th official visit?

"I really don't know.  I like it.  It's fun visiting schools.  I might take a fifth visit.  It's not going to hurt."

Ray claims to have no favorite team, and is completely undecided as to which school he will visit with his last official visit.

Penn State Coach Fran Ganter is recruiting Ray.

"They (Penn State) came in real late.  I was always getting mail from them, and then he just came to the school.  He spoke to me and my coach.

"Maryland and Georgia came in late too.  Georgia Tech has been recruiting me for a while."

What are Ray's thoughts about Penn State?

"I don't know.  I don't know much about Penn State at all.  I've never been there.

"I'm looking for a good school where I can fit in and just be happy to be there."

Ray enjoyed each of his official visits thus far.

"They're all nice, really nice.  It was weird, because I felt comfortable around the players at each school."

Some schools are pressuring Ray to make a decision by mentioning the limited amount of scholarships they have left.  That does not seem to concern him at all.

"Yeah, they're all saying stuff like that, but if they really want me, it's going to be there."
