Mallard Creek (Charlotte, N.C.) senior quarterback Marquise Williams is committed to the University of North Carolina. However, like some other players in UNC’s 2011 class, he is waiting to learn the outcome of an ongoing NCAA investigation into the program.
“I’m waiting to see what happens to my boys,” said Williams, a 6-3, 215-pound signal caller considered one of the top senior prospects in North Carolina. “I’ll talk to the coaches there every now and then to see what’s up. I’m just waiting.”
On July 10, Williams announced that he had committed to UNC, choosing the Tar Heels over Michigan and Virginia Tech among many others. Prior to the announcement, though, he planned on taking official visits to other schools. This plan has not changed and Tech is scheduled to be one of those visits.
“Right now, I’ll probably visit N.C. State and I’m thinking about taking one to LSU,” Williams said. “Virginia Tech is waiting for me to come up for my visit on October 16. I’m going to take an official to Michigan on October 9. I probably won’t take an official to UNC because I’ve been there so many times, so I might find some place else to go.”
Williams, who plans on enrolling in college in January, answered the question of where Virginia Tech currently stands on his list.
“Tech still stands high because they are looking for a quarterback still,” Williams said. “They still keep in contact. I talk to them every week.”
The dynamic signal caller accounted for 3,400 yards of offense, including 2,400 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing, and 40 total touchdowns last season as a junior. Williams continues to impress as a senior.
“I have about 1300 yards passing already and 17 touchdowns passing,” said Williams, who has guided MCHS to a 5-0 record. “I may have nine touchdowns rushing. I don’t know for sure. We keep firing up points and I’m showing people I can pass the ball.”
Williams entered 2010 as a 4-star recruit by Scout.com and a 3-star recruit by Rivals.com. ESPN.com rates him as a 4-star prospect.
