"I have nine offers, but only four of them are from FBS programs," Williams told JCFootball.com. "Texas State, UAB, Purdue and Louisville are the only D-1 offers that I have so far."
Williams took an official visit to Louisville last weekend and he came away impressed, but he's waiting to announce until after he trips to UAB this coming weekend.
"I loved my trip (to Louisville)," Williams noted. "I had a great time up there meeting with the coaches and the the players. They really made me feel at home there."
As a sophomore this past season, Williams played multiple roles, but he made most of his impact at tailback, carrying the ball nearly 100 times for close to 600 yards and five touchdowns while hauling in 18 receptions for just over 200 yards and another score.
"I like to get the ball in the open field and I can do multiple things to get the extra yards," Williams said. "I'd say that my hands have really improved a lot as I have matured as a player."
This offseason, Williams, a rock solid 6'3", 215-pounder has been focused on getting faster.
"I'm doing a lot of speed training because a player with speed can do pretty much whatever they want on the field."
Williams was a standout prep at Hunt (Wilson, NC) High School, but he was unable to get qualified, so he opted to head west to play for AHC.
"My grandparents actually lived out here in Santa Maria and Hancock is pretty close," Williams said. "I love it here. The coaches are great, the weather is good and program plays against top talent every week."
Williams is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two starting this fall.
