Lancaster (Calif.) athlete Devon Williams doesn’t know much about USC, and while he has performed as a wide receiver all offseason long at several different events, there are still many questions that revolve around Williams as well.
At 6-foot-5, 200-pounds, Williams plays all over the field for Antelope Valley. Where he plays in college remains to be seen, and as he researches his scholarship offer from USC, the Trojans coaching staff will have to evaluate where Williams best projects in college.
“I didn’t know the offer was coming,” said Williams. “I’ve been in communication with them, but we’ve been just talking. They didn’t say anything about offering me a scholarship.
“It was a great experience and blessing to receive the offer.”
Williams is being recruited to USC by Trojans recruiting coordinator Johnny Nansen.
“They said they liked how my film was put together and what I was able to to on that film,” said Williams. “The coaches said that they want to see more out of me.
“They want to see my growth from now to when I get to college.”
That growth will be what determines where Williams plays at the next level. It remains to be seen if that’s at USC or not.
“I’m still high on them, but this is a big decision,” said Williams. “I just have to keep in communication with them and learn more about them.”
Williams says USC is recruiting him primarily as a receiver, although he interjects that he is being looked at on offense and defensive by the Trojans as well.
“I know that USC has overcome a lot of bumps in the road and that they are a great school,” said Williams. “But how they see me fitting in… I won’t know until I get there.
“In general, USC is a great to school to go to, but I’m taking my time with the process. I’ll be going down there the 31st to see more. I’m interested in a sports and medicine major, so I want to look at that. I want to see how big the classrooms are and see the other facilities. Just things like that.”
