BREAKING: TD machine goes crimson

HE FIRST THOUGHT HE would take a while longer to decide but the more he considered his recent trip to Washington State, the more certain he became. A 6-4 scoring machine with 14 touchdowns already this season down at his high school in California, he tells CF.C why he went crimson.

Dominique Williams, out of Pomona, Calif., made the connection earlier this month on his official visit to WSU. He made the call on Sunday afternoon.

"It's Wazzu," said Williams, who stars at Garey High. "It was just the community and -- I'm just a Coug. I don't know how else to explain it. I am just a Coug."

Williams (6-4, 190, 4.5) said the WSU coaches were doing a little celebrating when he gave them the news.

"I talked to coach Levy (Mike Levenseller), coach Razz (Rich Rasmussen), coach (Paul Wulff), they were doing a little jumping. Levy said he couldn't wait to get me out there and for me to lift weights and get ready. Coach Razz, he was like; ‘Finally, it's about time!,'" laughed Williams.

Williams said his grandma was thrilled with his college choice because even though it's out of California, the safe community and college town atmosphere Pullman offers is a huge plus.

Through seven games in 2010, Williams already had 14 touchdowns despite seeing more and more double and even triple teams. He had also returned four touchdowns for score by way of kickoff and punt return.

As a junior, he had 45 catches for 1,213 yards with 10 touchdowns. He also racked up 2,125 all-purpose yards, including two kickoff returns and a punt return that were brought back for scores.

Williams becomes the 18th known verbal commitment to Paul Wulff's 2011 class, joining DE Eli Edwards, S Tana Pritchard, OT Rico Forbes, DT T.J. Poloai, RB DaMarcus James, QB Cody Clements, WR/LB/ATH Brock Lutes, LB/SS Darryl Monroe (listed by as a soft verbal), WR Isiah Myers, WR Henry Eaddy, CB Spencer Waseem, DT David Davis, RB/LB Chester Sua, LB/DE Logan Mayes, S Max Gama, TE Max Hersey and RB Bishop Sankey.

Look for more on Williams later on CF.C.
