Skyline DB picks up two more offers
2009 Dallas (Texas) Skyline defensive back Steve Williams has seen his recruitment on a steady incline since his first group of offers just a few weeks ago.
Among the conferences represented in Williams' first few offers are the Big 12 (Texas Tech), the Big Ten (Minnesota) and the ACC (Miami). Now the SEC has joined the list as Kentucky officially offered the cornerback and Kansas added to his list of Big 12 offers.
"Kentucky, I don't really know too much about them," Williams said. "I saw them play a couple of times. I haven't really talked to the coaches or anything. I saw them play against LSU. They looked alright. They got some great players coming out of there. Kansas I don't know much about. I'm gonna read up on the internet to find out more about them."
While he still is learning about Kansas and Kentucky, there are two schools that could be close to offering, and two schools Williams hopes aren't far behind.
"My coach told me that Oklahoma State was probably about to offer me," he said. "Nebraska sent me something in the mail that said to call them so they may be close. They're all football in Nebraska. They love football down there. It's a small town and that's all they do."
The two schools that could really excite the speedy DB are Kansas State and Arizona.
"I like K-State because they had Terrence Newman. That's my role model as far as being a football player. I like Arizona because they've got a cornerback that's going to get drafted and going tot eh league and they beat Oregon last year."
Currently, Williams is spending his time in the weight room and working on his strength and explosiveness.
"I run track but I just go to the weight room and work on explosion," he said. "As far as speed, I have speed. But I'm working on explosion and getting strength to go with it."
