Some thought that the Naples, Florida athlete had been waiting to see what Bo Williams did before he pulled the trigger. According to the soft-spoken Barron Collier running back that wasn't the case at all.
"No sir,I don't even know who Bo Williams is," Greg Williams explained. "I had my own time frame for a decision."
Williams may have caught Dave Wannstedt off guard.
"I called him today and were just talking about some things and I just kind of threw it out there that I wanted to come to Pitt. He was ecstatic, I think I surprised him."
It was Wannstedts desire for a power running game that helped attract the talented three-star prospect to Pittsburgh.
"I am a powerful and fast, downhill type of runner and I know that is what they want there."
The 6-2, 205-pound Williams can also play a number of other positions. As a senior he ran for 1.481 yards and 17 touchdowns. He was named All-Conference and honorable mention All-State.
