Williams Picks Up Number Five
Gardena (Calif.) Serra 2014 outside linebacker Dwight Williams, a Scout 300 prospect, had an exciting Friday. During the day, the 6-foot-2, 212-pound prospect picked up his fifth offer from Boise State. "I was talking to Coach BobGregory, the linebackers coach, through Facebook and he got me on the phone and then offered from there. I had been talking with them over the course of a few weeks," he said. The Broncos' offer joins others from UCLA, Oregon State, Colorado, and Arizona State, which are all programs to which Williams is open. "No one is really standing out right now. I'm just weighing options and looking around still," he said. Friday night, the linebacker helped his team defeat Santa Monica (Calif.) in a 58-6 victory in the second round of playoffs, helping his team advance to this weekend's match up versus Lompoc (Calif.) for the CIF-SS Western Division semifinals. On Saturday, Williams attended the crosstown rivalry between UCLA and USC at the Rose Bowl and told Scout.com's Brandon Huffman afterwards that he really enjoyed the experience. "Man, UCLA came out explosive from the first turnover and it just carried on throughout the rest of the game and its crazy how a coaching staff can make that big of a difference in one year from 50-0 to a win," said Williams. This weekend, Williams plans to attend the Coliseum when USC hosts Notre Dame. Though he doesn't have an offer from the Trojans quite yet, they are another program with whom he's been talking. For Williams, however, there is no rush into making any sort of decision, as he's continuing to enjoy the recruiting process. "I think I'm going to wait until next year to take some visits and explore everything," he said. However, he does know a few things that he's looking for in a program. "First of all, I want to go to a school that has great academics. Then I'll look the coaching staff and see how well I fit into the program, as well as the community of where the school is," he said. The linebacker has really emerged throughout the off-season and his junior year and says he can see an improvement in his game, as well. "This season, I've improved at recognizing more of what is going on in the backfield. Now I'm able to sniff out plays, seeing the play before it happens, and reading reactions. I'm still working on my coverage and going down field and hitting," he said.
