Brennan Williams is a standout junior at Catholic Memorial High School in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. After the 2007 season, Williams was named all-conference as well as standout junior on his team. He is a very athletic big prospect who plays on both sides of the football. In 2007, Williams led his team in tackles for loss in addition to getting 8 sacks on defense and starting at offensive tackle.

Quality big men are hard to find and Williams is quickly becoming a top priority for many schools. "I have offers from Boston College, Uconn, Maryland, Syracuse, Virginia, Duke, and Wake Forest," said Williams, "and I am getting a lot of interest from Notre Dame and Penn State."

When asked about Wake Forest, Williams noted that he is still learning about the Demon Deacons. "I have not visited them yet and don't know a whole lot about them. I am looking forward to learning more about them when I visit there this spring."

Although it is early in his recruitment, Williams knows what he is looking for in a school. "First and foremost is academics," he said. "After that I will look at which schools have recruited me the hardest as well as location. I don't want to be too many time zones away from home."

When asked which side of the ball he would rather play in college, Williams said, he prefers to play defense. "I prefer defense over offense but most schools are recruiting me as a offensive lineman. Maryland wants me as a center but some schools want me as a defensive tackle or defensive end."

Williams made it clear that he wants to look at all of his options before making a decision but that he would not mind getting the process over before his season starts. Williams also stated that he would not go to many camps this summer, rather he will concentrate on going to more national combines.

Whichever team is lucky enough to get Williams will not only be getting a high level athlete they will also be getting a top notch student who values academics.
