Methodical Pace

On the field, De'Antwan Williams is in a hurry, racking up an average of more than three scores per game during his senior season. In other football-related matters, he's a bit more methodical.

Williams, who had to cancel a scheduled summer visit to West Virginia due to an unforeseen conflict, is trying to get his trip to the WVU campus reset.

"I've been thinking about that and trying to decide when I'm going to make my official visit to West Virginia, and to the other schools I'm interested in," said Williams, the star runner for Woodbridge High School in Woodbridge, Va. "I'm going to try to make it up for the Auburn game, because I can do that without any conflicts with my high school schedule."

Williams, who has offers from a number of other schools, is also planning to take an official visit to Alabama. After that, however, his plans are still open. The Mountaineers and Crimson Tide might end being his only two visits, or he might take up to his full allotment of five. He has been methodical throughout the recruiting process, and will not rush his decision.

Williams has been able to keep the recruiting process separate from his senior season on the field, and hasn't allowed one to affect the other. Of course, things on the field have been going good for the sturdy back, who has piled up 647 yards and 14 touchdowns to help Woodbridge to a 4-0 start.

"Everything is looking really good," he said of his team's prospects for the season. "I have sat out a little bit [because we have been winning]."

Williams, who is being recruited by WVU assistant Chris Beatty and stays in touch with him, is not bothered at all by the fact that the Mountaineers have lost a couple of games.

"That doesn't affect anything at all," he stated. "It doesn't affect the recruiting process in any way."
