Four-star RB has four favorites

Woodbridge, Virginia four-star running back De'Antwan Williams has had a stellar high school career and he is topping it off with a remarkable senior year.

The 5-foot-7, 185-pound back has an impressive offer list and that's not surprising when you look at his body of work over the past several seasons. So far this year Williams has rushed for 1,608 yards and 25 touchdowns, bringing him within about 600 yards of breaking the state rushing record.

Woodbridge is 8-0 on the year with two regular season games remaining before the start of the playoffs. While Williams wouldn't mind breaking a few more records before he heads off to college, his top concern is helping his team advance as far as possible in the playoffs.

He was at West Virginia not long ago for the Mountaineers' big nationally televised win over Auburn and came away impressed with what he saw.

"I went to West Virginia the other Thursday for the Auburn game," he recalled. "It was really nice. They showed me a lot of love there.

"Earlier I went to the Virginia-North Carolina game. That was a really good game and went well, too.

"I'm going to Alabama on November 29 for an official visit and I'll be going to West Virginia for the weekend of their game against USF (December 5). I'm not sure where I'll take the other three."

That said, he does have a pretty good idea of which schools he is most interested in.

"I would probably say my favorites are Alabama, West Virginia, Pitt and Maryland," he said. "I'm not sure who would be number five but I like those four a lot."

Williams is ranked the No. 13 running back in the nation by Rivals.com.
