    Williams is likely a top 20 recruit in California for the 2014 class. As Biggins says, he was the LB MVP at the LA Nike Camp and he was also a standout at the Vegas 7-on-7 tournament.

    Serra is a high school powerhouse in So Cal. We have three current direct connections to them with Jashon Sykes, Paul Richardson, and Woodson Greer, all alums. Additionally, Deon Figures also attended Serra several years ago. Plus you have other players like Robert Woods and Marqise Lee currently starring at USC.

    Can't watch the vids at work so can't judge for myself.

    6'1" 200lbs is still pretty small for a PAC level LB. Does he project to bulk up enough to play LB at this level or does he have the speed to be a killer safety? Hybrid?

    The kid is only a sophomore, he's got a lot of time to add weight.

    Williams had a monster junior season: 158 tackles, 13 TFL, 4 FF, and INTs. Not surprisingly, he has the attention of the entire PAC-12.

    Mr. Williams, I believe a certain new PAC-12 head coach would be willing to talk to you about Patrick Willis.:wink2:

    Mora and company is recruiting lights out right now, combine that with another good season and its going to be tough for anyone to get out of SoCal

    I think he probably stays in LA but with the pipeline that USC has with Serra, if they offer I'd probably bet on them

    Not sure Williams is a good fit for Pendergast's system.

    FWIW, his stock dropped quite a bit as his senior season played out. Questions about desire and toughness.

    Yeah, I think his size is killing him too. Too small for LB, to slow for safety.

    Sounds like a Hawk recruit. To slow, to small, and lazy. Why not?

    Interesting. fUCLA fans said they pulled his offer a couple weeks ago.

    He is a very good prospect, but read/look at the evaluation on Scout. A lot of teams backed off. Even UCLA fans were pretty lukewarm in landing him. We would love the problem, but that's the difference between the haves and the have nots.

    That's very fair. I commented because it was turning into people assuming he was a HaLkins type recruit. If HaLk had filled classes with guys like Williams, he'd probably still be coaching here or have moved on for a higher-paying job elsewhere.

    That's not fair. Hawk's guys usually tried hard.
