Wiilliams plans to take it slow
Fairless Hills (PA) Pennsbury wide receiver Eric Williams holds six offers at this time and is in no hurry to end the recruiting process. One of those six offers came from Syracuse University and Williams spoke with CuseConfidential.com about that offer.
"They offered me awhile ago I think either March or April," Williams said. "I was pretty excited actually, Syracuse is big time football and big time players came from Syracuse. I am excited about it."
Williams, 6-foot-3, 193 pounds is listed as a three star receiver on Rivals.com, but the Orange have other plans for him.
"They said I was very aggressive going to the ball as a safety and then they said that I would fit right into their defensive scheme."
When it comes to playing a certain position in college Williams does not mind where he lines up as long as he gets his chance to compete on the field.
"I can play both positions and it does not matter to me as long as I get on the field and make plays."
Whether he is playing receiver or safety Williams feels that he has the right mindset for each position when he steps out on to the field.
"My work ethic, I come out for every game ready to play and nothing can stop me."
A visit has not been taken to Syracuse yet, but Williams has done a lot of research on the Orange. The research has gone well and he likes what he has seen.
"They [Syracuse] meet all of my criteria as a good school and everything, so I like them a lot."
Other than Syracuse many schools are still taking a hard look at the prospect and he feels a few could be on the verge of offering.
"Pittsburgh, Temple, Maryland, Virginia, Notre Dame, Purdue, Akron, Kent State, Vanderbilt and several others are looking at me as well," Williams stated. "Temple was my most recent offer. They offered me about two or three weeks ago."
With interest from many schools and six offers in hand Williams has no time set to narrow his list or make a decision.
"I do not have a top five or any leader at this time. I am keeping everybody equal and then I will sit down with my parents when the time comes."
Despite not making any visits recently the Keystone State product has kept himself busy as he has kept his eye on the upcoming season.
"I am on a bigger faster stronger workout plan with my father. I also workout with my teammates and then I go to a personal trainer two or three times a week and we workout there. Then I am doing passing stuff with my team."
