Simeon 2019 RB/ATH Anthony Williams added a couple new FBS offers with more showing strong interest. We talked his summer camp plans, playing 7on7 with HEROH and his under recruited teammates.
Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 185 lbs
LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing any other sports or 7on7?
AW: During the off-season, I will continue my 6am workouts with my personal trainer 3-5 days a week working on speed, strength and agility. I also plan to run the hill 2-4 days a week. I play for HEROH 7on7 team and we have one tournament left. Once that game and camp visits are over, I will work with my high school team over the summer to get ready for next season.
LPI: You have offers from Arkansas St, Northern Illinois, Central Michigan and South Dakota State. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
AW: I have great speed. I can catch and block out of the backfield. I can also play any skilled position on offense or defense.
LPI: Besides the schools that have offered, which schools have shown serious interest in you?
AW: Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Michigan, Bowling Green, Indiana State, Michigan State, Arkansas, Wyoming, Tennessee and Penn State.
LPI: Where have you visited/camped most recently and do you have any planned visits or camps/showcases set?
AW: I have gone to the North Central, Northwestern, Purdue, Sound Mind/Sound Body, Memphis Big Cat Mega camp and a NIU camp. I want to try to go to a camp at schools in all divisions (Big 10, SEC, MAC). I already visited Michigan and will visit Michigan State again this year for their prospect camp.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership or go the extra mile for your teammates?
AW: One or two of my teammates and I sometimes run the hill after practice twice a week. Some of them have joined me during my regular workout on conditioning, running routes and working on speed. I lead drills to show the other RBs how the drills are supposed to be done. At the training facility, I work out with new or younger athletes to improve their athletic performance.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
AW: All four teammates from Simeon are hard workers and coachable.
Leon Payne – Fast, runs crisp routes and has a good eye for the ball. He always gets where he needs to be on the field. Sometimes we run the hill together after practice or do extra field work.
Tierre (Tre’) Turner – Has the fundamentals and can play both offense and defense. He is pretty much unblock able.
Marques (D-Rose) Ray – Is fast and runs good routes. He will go up, grab and come down with the ball, usually in the end zone.
Alante (Cadillac) Brown – is the field general. He is fast, has accurate throwing from the pocket, or will take off and run the ball. D-Rose and Cadillac are also my teammates on HEROH 7v7. Any of these guys would be a great player with any football program.
Simeon Head Coach Dante Culbreath on Williams on and off the field
“Anthony is a great kid, I never have problems with him. He always shows up for work, has great parents and he’s definitely a hard worker. He’s a ‘yes coach, no coach’ type of kid that you love to have on your team.”
