Cincy Grabs Another From Michigan
Michigan Varsity's 8th overall prospect in the state of Michigan verbally committed to Cincinnati on Tuesday. The 5'6, 165-lb running back from Detroit Martin Luther King had also been receiving interest from Michigan, West Virginia, Michigan State and others, but in the end, it was coach Brian Kelly who won out.
"I committed to [running backs coach] Ernest Jones," Williams reported, "Coach Kelly wasn't there. It basically came down to that I felt more comfortable with the coaches. Im their guy, I'm going to go in their and play right away and that's what I was looking for in the recruiting process. I was their top prospect."
Williams had planned to go to several camps and visits including Ann Arbor and Morgantown and while his plans haven't changed, he is very firmly a Bearcat.
"Yeah, I'll still go to camps, maybe some other visits, but I'm real solid to them. They needed someone like me to open up their offense and I'm going to play right away."
Williams will now turn his attention to the upcoming season and with that, trying to get a few of his talented teammates like QB/S Donovan Dickerson on the Cincy radar.
"I'm going to try to get a couple of them to join me," he said, "they aren't really recruiting Donovan right now, but they will once they come to some of our games."
Williams becomes the Bearcats' fifth commit of the year and second from Michigan, joining Hillsdale TE/OT Sean Hooey.
