Is Williams' Wait For A Rutgers Offer Over?

One of the top class of 2011 receivers to camp at Rutgers last month was Robinson High's (Tampa) Frankie Williams, who was hoping for an offer from the Scarlet Knights. A month has passed, and the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Williams gave ScarletReport.com an update on what is transpiring with the Scarlet Knights.

It has been a month since Robinson High (Tampa, Fla.) receiver Frankie Williams put on an impressive display at Rutgers' camp, and it could be another month before he knows if it will result in an offer.

While not ideal, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Williams is willing to ride it out.

"They have to talk to the recruits they already offered, and see if they are still an option," Williams said. "I don't know how I'm going to handle it. I really like Rutgers a lot."

Williams and teammate Ruben Gonzalez, also a receiver, performed well at Rutgers' camp, and showed why he holds offers from a half-dozen BCS conference schools, including Cincinnati, Purdue, North Carolina State, Vanderbilt, Iowa State and Washington State.

Both players are in a wait-and-see mode as it pertains to an offer from Rutgers, and Williams is trying to pass the time by preparing for training camp, which begins Aug. 9.

"I'm lifting weights, playing 7-on-7," he said. "I'm cool with waiting. I figure things will take care of themselves. I'll probably make my decision out of the blue. I really don't know when."

In the meantime, Williams said he continues to speak with Rutgers assistant coach Chris Hewitt and head coach Greg Schiano.

"(Schiano) and I don't really talk about football," Williams said. "He just asks me what I'm doing, and how I'm doing. They said they would know (about an offer) before school starts."

That Williams speaks well of Rutgers bodes well for the Scarlet Knights, if they decide to offer because his strong feelings come even after visiting a number of schools.

"I went to Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Florida State, Georgia and South Florida," he said.
