Williams Enjoys USC Opener

This Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Serra High School was well represented, and not just by the players on the field, but by two elite 2014 recruits in the stands as well.

It seems that every time you tune into a USC game, the conversation at some point turns to Serra High School, the Gardena, Calif., powerhouse that has produced Robert Woods, Marqise Lee and George Farmer.

This Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was no different, as Serra was well represented once again, and not just by the players on the field, but by two elite recruits in the stands as well.

2014 linebacker Dwight Williams and 2015 cornerback Adoree Jackson were among the 93,607 fans in attendance for USC's 49-10 season opening victory over Hawaii, and raved about the experience.

"It was electrifying up there. The student section was going crazy and everybody was glad to be there from the alumni to the frats," said Dwight Williams. "Everything was just extraordinary.

"They played great from the first play of the game, the kickoff and first hit, everything was great."

Williams, one of the top 2014 linebacker prospects in California, was thrilled to see Robert Woods and Marqise Lee contribute four touchdowns for the Trojans in the win.

"It's pretty cool knowing those guys and they are like the top guys at USC," Williams said. "It's cool knowing them and getting to see them play."

The 6-0, 192-pound linebacker has been able to spend time on the USC campus and is very comfortable with the program.

"It's the local school, close to home, and I can get up there a lot and talk to the coaching staff," he explained.

When it comes to recruiting, Williams said he has been hearing a lot from another traditional powerhouse as well.

"Recruiting is picking back up. I have been getting a lot of messages and stuff. I'm hearing the most from Ohio State," he said. "I don't know too much about them but Mike Thomas up there and he has been telling me a lot of stuff."

Williams remains wide open in his recruitment and is focused on having a big junior season, which has already included an impressive win over Long Beach Poly.

"That was a great win. I have friends on that team and we trash talked back and forth a little bit, but it was all fun. It was a great win.

"Guys have been working hard in practice and it has started really paying off."
