"Wake Forest was the first big school to offer me so it was definitely exciting to get the offer. I know they're in the ACC. It's a program they're building back up. They always seem to be a dark-horse team that rise up on people and get a big win. They're been progressing slowly but surely and I think it's a great football program."
In Florida Class 6A, Williams had 105 tackles, nine sacks, nine pass breakups, five interceptions, and one passing touchdown in 2012 for the Fort Lauderdale Flying L's. He played both inside and outside linebacker in the Flying L's 4-2-5 defense.
His junior performance has landed Williams with offers from Appalachian State, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Marshall, Memphis, SMU, South Alabama, and Wake Forest. he's also been receiving interest from Alabama, Florida, Miami (Fla.), and North Carolina.
"Right now I'm just enjoying the recruiting process," he said. "I'm still open. I'm going to be looking at academics first and foremost. I'd like to study medicine, either anesthesiology or pharmacy. I want to be in a good college atmosphere with a good coaching staff. It's the whole feeling I get about the school that will help make my decision."
With nine sacks and five interceptions in his junior season, his third as a varsity starter, Williams said his "coverage skills" and "pass rush ability" are his strongest assets on the field. This spring his competing in track and field as his school's best in the discuss.
