Sacramento LB likes the Dawgs

Worrell Williams plays both ways for Grant Union High School in Sacramento, California. At 6-0 246, he's a load on both sides of the ball, although the major attention comes from his ability to crush ball carriers.

"We're 4-1 so far this season. It's going well, but we did have a loss in that third week. We got a little big headed, but we're back to business now. It's going well for me," Williams told yesterday.

"I'm playing pretty well, on both offense and defense. I'm playing at linebacker and running back."

Worrell had a couple of touchdowns as well as threw for a couple of scores as well. At linebacker, he's caused two fumbles, had two sacks, and had a fumble recovery for a touchdown. It is on defense where the majority of his recruiting interest has taken place.

"Most schools want me on defense. Only one school told me that I could play wherever I wanted to. But I think I'd need to get a little quicker if I was going to play offense," said Williams, who reportedly runs a 4.6 in the 40-yard dash.

He has not taken any recruiting visits yet, as his parents preference would be for him to wait until after his football season is over. "No visits yet, but the schools I'm talking to all want me to visit in December so that works out. I'll be visiting Washington, USC, and Cal for sure."

Williams is also looking at Tennessee, Fresno State, Oregon, and possibly Kansas State as candidates for his remaining visits.

"I'll probably take one or two trips with my brother," said Worrell of his sibling, standout athlete Gerwin.

Chuck Heater is recruiting Williams for the Huskies. "He told me that they are really excited to get me down there. The entire staff sent a Fed-Ex letter. They're very interested in me."

Worrell has obvious connections to the Husky program. "(former Husky DT) Reggie Rogers is a very good friend of ours, and (current freshman safety) C.J. Wallace is my cousin."

Last we spoke with Worrell he had two favorites, USC and Washington. He has offers from both schools, in addition to scholarship offers from Oregon State, Washington State, and California.

"Washington and USC are still the ones that interest me the most," said Williams.
