Williams Waits Patiently For An Opportunity

ASA RB Joseph Williams (5-11, 200) is having a great sophomore season and hopes to earn some offers once schools get a look at what he can do with the ball in his hands...

"I actually don't have any offers yet, but I have been talking a lot with Syracuse and Florida Atlantic and a few smaller schools," Williams told JCFootball.com recently. "I won't take any trips until after my season is over, so it will be in December and January before I take any of those."

Williams is no stranger to the recruiting game.

As a prep in Emmaus (Allentown, Pa.), the talented runner drew attention from several schools and signed with Connecticut, spending his first year-and-a-half of college ball in Bristol.

"I liked it there, but I got myself in a hole academically and I couldn't get out of it, so I left there after the (2013) season and enrolled here at ASA," Williams recalled. "It was the right move for me. I've got my academics back where they need to be and I really like the staff and the program here. I think it was a good move for me and I just hope someone gives me another opportunity to play (FBS) college ball."

So far this season, Williams has rushed for 774 yards and three scores on 113 touches. He also ranks second on the Avengers with 13 receptions for 175 yards and he leads the team with two more scores.

"One of the big things I worked on this past summer was my hands and being a good receiver out of the backfield," Williams said. "I also wanted to get better at my pass-protection, picking up the blitz, stuff like that and I think that has helped me a lot and it allows me to stay on the field and make plays for my team."

Williams is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have two years to play two following the 2014 football season.
