Orange Impress Williams

D'Metrius Williams attended the Syracuse spring game wanting to get to know more about the school and hoping for an offer, however he went home empty-handed. While he does have one offer from Norfolk State right now, his goal is to keep on track with the Orange and nail things down.

Salem High School defensive back D'Metrius Williams is being recruited to play cornerback by Syracuse and the 6-foot, 175-pound athlete was very impressed by his visit to the school a few weeks back.

"I was at Syracuse for the spring game and it went well," Williams said. "They had me meet a lot of the coaches and then I met with the defensive backs coach one on one for a while. He said he was very interested in me and while they didn't offer, he said he'd be keeping in touch with me."

"Everything was very nice there. The coaches seemed really chill off the field, but they were very intense during the game. They had a really nice weight room and the facilities were really impressive. After the game I had the chance to talk to some of the players and they were saying it was a good environment to come play football and that it would be a good place to come because with my skills and the seniors leaving I'd have a good chance to play early."

"Coach (Rob) Moore is supposed to be coming to my school to visit me soon at my school," Williams explained. "We have a good relationship and he has been great with my mom so far. Syracuse was one of the very first schools to get back to me on my highlight tape when I sent it out, so I've been talking to them for a while now."

As a junior, Williams registered 43 tackles, 15 pass break ups and two interceptions.
