Local Three-Star Prospect Talks Recruiting

Tahoma (Maple Valley, Wa.) two-way athlete Amandre Williams was in Las Vegas at the Pylon 7v7 with the Barton Football Academy group this past weekend and he updated Dawgman.com on where things stand on the recruiting front as well as what his plans are for the spring...

"Right now, I have six offers -- Washington, Kansas, Colorado State, Northwestern, Montana State and Utah -- and I've been talking a lot with Wyoming, Arizona and Oregon a little bit and some other Pac 12 schools," Williams told Dawgman.com.

Williams was unable to make Washington's Junior Day on February 7th, but said he has plans to make it up to Montlake soon, to meet with the coaches.

"I'm definitely planning on going to their Junior Day on April 18th, but they want to get me up before that, so I've got to set that up with my family and the coaches when I can make it up," Williams noted. "My relationship with (the Husky coaches) is really good and strong. They've been recruiting me the longest and they are so close, so I have been able to spend more time with them than other coaches.

"I talk to coach (Jeff) Choate, coach (Pete) Kwiatkowski and coach (Chris) Petersen a lot and I feel really comfortable with them. They're good coaches and I like how they talk to me about my life after football and not just football. That's really cool actually."

Williams said he hopes to make it to several schools this spring to check things out at other schools and to see what they have to offer.

"I'm not close (to deciding) right now. I want to see some things before I make my decision," Williams said. "I'd like to take a least a few of my official visits before I commit anywhere, but I'm not going to just draw things out for a long time or anything.

"When I am ready I will decide, but right now, I feel like I'll need to take at least a couple of officials before I am ready."

Williams, along with Bellevue (Wa.) QB Justus Rogers, helped lead the BFA Washington team to an Elite Eight finish in the Pylon 7v7, a tournament that had close to 50 teams.

At just over 6'3" and weighing close to 230 pounds, Williams is an impressive looking athlete who plays quarterback and defensive end/linebacker for Tahoma.

We'll have more on Williams and his recruitment in the coming weeks and months as he begins to hit the camp and combine circuit.
