Ohio Pass Rusher Looks Forward To Recruiting

A quick Ohio defender is looking forward to the recruiting process, and has West Virginia on his list of schools of interest.

Jock Williams is an edge pass rusher at Shaker Heights High School in Ohio, and he's looking forward to the recruiting process.

"I will enjoy going to different schools and seeing what they have to offer," said Williams. "I've been to West Virginia and Michigan, and I plan to go to summer camps at both of those schools."

Williams is playing defensive end for Shaker Heights this year, but expects to be recurited as a linebacker in college. That's no problem for the solidly built Williams, who has experience at that position.

"I played linebacker in tenth grade, so I don't think I'll have any problem switching back. I like playing there."

Due to some offensive personnel shortages, Williams is also slated to play some offensive tackle during his senior year, which attests to the toughness of a player weighing in the 220 pound range.

Williams, who visited the West Virginia campus on junior day, was impressed with what he saw.

"I liked it a lot," Williams said of his visit. "I got along well with the coaches. I talked with Coach Rodriguez, Coach Casteel and Coach Tall, and I liked the way they talked with me. I also like the way the defense is run, I think I'd fit in well. I'm impressed with the way they got the program turned around."

Williams also mentioned that Tall attended Shaker Heights, so that familiarity definitely helped him in his initial meetings with WVU's new assistant.

Williams lists "good feet" and "good pass rushing skills" as his main strengths, but also notes that he isn't averse to prep work either.

"I read offenses and defenses well, and I like to study film," said the rising senior. "We have a lot of returnig leaders this year, so I'm looking forward to a good senior year."
