Williams Could Graduate Early

Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne quarterback Troy Williams was one of the real stars at the recent New Level 7 on 7 tournament in Las Vegas last weekend. Williams has improved is so many areas and is easily among the elite quarterbacks in the region...

Troy Williams is a player that people in the Los Angeles city section were already talking about before his first varsity snap prior to his freshman year. He has a breakout sophomore season and then blew up as a junior earning L.A City Player of the Year honors after leading the Gauchos to their first city title.

The quarterback had a great tournament over the weekend looking as comfortable and as poised in the pocket as we've ever seen him. His arm strength was improved from the high school season and he was throwing the ball on time and anticipating better than ever as well.

On the recruiting front, Williams said he wants to go through the recruiting process but did say a few schools were recruiting him harder than the others.

"I'm hearing the most from Washington, Georgia Tech, UCLA and Arizona State," Williams said. "I have nine total offers and I'm open to everyone but those four are the most serious right now. I've been to UCLA before and I'm planning to check out Arizona, ASU and Washington over Spring Break.

"I'm not ready to narrow my list yet and I'm considering taking my official visits. At the same time, I'm also considering graduating early and enrolling in time for spring ball so I still have to figure out my time line and when I want to make my decision."

Williams said he does have a few things in mind when picking a school.

"Academics are very important and I also want to try and play early," Williams said. "I'm also looking for a staff that can best prepare me for the next level. Location isn't important. My parents are going to have a big say in my decision but they told me they don't care if I stay close to home or leave because I'm the one that has to live there.

"I think once I take my unofficial visits, I'll have a better idea of what I want to do. Sometime in the summer I'll sit back with my family and coaches and try and find the best situation for me."
