Williams: Still Waiting for Offers

Despite completing 65% of his passes last season (195-of-300), Ben Williams is still waiting on his first scholarship offer. Things have picked up lately with solid performances at combines and 7-on-7 passing tournaments, but Williams will most likely have to prove his worth on the summer camping circuit.

"Recruiting wise everything is going good no scholarships yet, but there's college's showing more interest," said Williams. "Just mostly the ACC teams like North Carolina, and Wake Forest."

Williams, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback from Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic, will camp at Wake Forest, South Carolina, and North Carolina before the summer is out.

With so much up in the air, Williams is keeping an open mind with his recruitment.

"My dream school is Florida State, but right now I don't care too much for that," said Williams. "I mean if they gave me a scholarship today I'd take it. Right now I don't really have a preference, because I don't have a scholarship. I'm just keeping my options open."

According to Olympic head coach Maurice Flowers, most division I-A schools are recruiting Williams as an athlete. Williams isn't opposed to a position change, but admits his focus is firmly on his upcoming senior season.

On his way to earning All-Conference first team and All-County Second team honors, Williams passed for 2,311 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also picked up 622 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.
