Williams Talks About Visit to Montlake

This past Friday, the Huskies hosted three of the top in-state prospects on their radar and one, Tahoma (Maple Valley, Wa.) two-way athlete Amandre Williams, said there is "nothing not to like" about the University of Washington...

"It was a good time up there," Williams said of his visit to Montlake. "I didn't make their Junior Day (in February), so we had talked about me coming up and seeing things, so me and my mom went up and we met with the coaches and saw a lot of the non-football stuff."

Some of the areas the Husky staff highlighted included the academic side, the support as well as the campus.

"It was really cool to see all of that stuff and my mom really liked coach (Chris) Petersen because he talked about all of the non-football stuff," Williams said. "When I met with coach (Jeff) Choate, that was when we talked about football and that really was cool to see what he had to say.

"He talked a lot about the 'BUCK' spot and how they develop guys to play and what they want, but he talked about off-the-field stuff too and they just drove home how they really want you to succeed not just on the football field, but also in life."

In addition to the things he saw, Williams was very quick to point out another highlight.

"Seeing Taylor (Rapp) commit was really cool," Williams said. "It was pretty exciting and it was fun seeing the coaches get all fired up and how their energy just came out."

So was Williams tempted to commit?

"There's really nothing not to like about Washington. I really like it there and I have a great relationship with the coaches and they are so close (to home), but I'm not close (to deciding yet)," Williams said. "I want to wait through May and see what other coaches come by and see me and which ones might offer.

"I have some good offers now and I want to see what other schools offer and then I will take some visits to check out different schools.

"I'm not really sure which ones I will visit or if I will take visits to see schools that haven't offered yet. I'll just sorta see what happens with it and make my plans as I get closer to the summer."

Williams, two-way star for the Bears, helped lead his team to a 6-4 record as a junior this past fall, playing both quarterback and outside linebacker/defensive end for the Bears. He threw for over 2,500 yards and 17 touchdowns while rushing for three more.

On defense, the talented two-way player had more than 60 tackles whith 7.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles-for-loss.
