Stonewall Jackson (Manassas, VA) running back Ryan Williams has kept his recruitment quiet, but that doesn’t mean he has not been busy. He has made unofficial visits to a handful of Division 1A programs, all of which have extended official scholarship offers. Stonewall Jackson head coach Loren Johnson provided the latest on the top tailback’s recruitment.
Williams and a few teammates were scheduled to head to Blacksburg this Saturday for camp, but after several weeks on the road the trip will not happen.
“We’re not going now, but we are going to take an unofficial visit for the East Carolina game,” Johnson said.
The fall figures to be a busy time for the 5-10, 205-pound prospect, who now plans to make all five official visits before making a college decision.
“That’s another new thing. He is going to take all five of his official visits,” Johnson said. “A decision could come mid-season or the latter part of the season. He has made a lot of unofficial visits. He went to N.C. State, North Carolina, Rutgers, Pitt and U-Conn. He went to a couple of other places, too.”
No official visits have been set at this time. Coach Johnson did not let on to any potential favorite schools, either.
“I am not authorized to say that right now,” Johnson said.
Are Virginia and Virginia Tech still seriously in the running?
“I know he is looking at every school right now,” Johnson answered. “He is going to research every school.
“He will probably visit both places during the season to watch some games, but whether those visits will be because he is interested or just to watch games is up to him.”
One of the top tailbacks in the East, Williams averaged 10 yards-per-carry en route to gaining 1,574 yards and scoring a total of 22 touchdowns last season as a junior. He is rated the #2 prospect in the state by TechSideline.com.
