Williams Names a Leader, Is Close to Decision

Detroit King RB Darrin Williams has been busy hitting the camp and combine circuit, but the explosive playmaker still took the time to update us on his status. He has a new and clear leader atop his board.

One trip was all it took for Darrin Williams to name a new leader and a second trip to Morgantown is in the near future for the 5'6, 165-lb all purpose back.

"West Virginia is my top right now," Williams reported, "My coach went down there for a coach's convention and everything we run is based on their system, so it's a good fit for me."

Williams' Detroit King squad indeed features the spread offense and 3-3-5 defense the Mountaineers have become famous for running. Whether it is as a running back or a cornerback, he knows he will feel a certain level of comfort out on the field.

"I just like the program, I don't care if it's on offense or on defense, I really like what they're doing and I'll play where I can contribute," Williams told us.

The plan is all laid out now. Since King started school later than most Michigan schools, they also finish later. June 17 is the last day of class for Williams and he plans to make a trip down to the West Virginia campus shortly thereafter.

"They have a camp then and I hope to get my offer then. They've already seen my film."

After that camp date, Williams is hoping he won't have to waste too much time making a decision on where he will play his college football.

"I want to commit early," he confidently declared, "definitely during the summer sometime."

The next stop for Williams is the NIKE camp in Cleveland this coming weekend. Michigan Varsity will have updates on Williams and the other in-state prospects in attendance.
