WR Williams has three offers

One of Pennsylvania's best-kept secrets is finally becoming known on a wider scale. That was bound to happen sooner or later.

Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt wide receiver Salath Williams hasn't yet received the same accolades as many of the top prospects in the Keystone State's Class of 2010, but it might not be long until he's mentioned as one of Pennsylvania's top prospects.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound receiver has the size to cause plenty of match-up problems for smaller defensive backs, and he can really stretch the field.

As a junior at Bishop McDevitt this past fall he caught 49 balls for 899 yards and 11 touchdowns, establishing himself as one of the top deep threats in the region.

So far three schools have offered Williams.

"Iowa, Pitt and Temple have offered me," he said. "Iowa offered me like three months ago. Pitt was during the football season sometime. I'm gonna say Temple was three weeks ago."

Other schools that haven't offered are interested in the rangy wide receiver. He said he has also been hearing quite a bit from UConn, Rutgers and Boston College.

"I visited Rutgers, Pitt and West Virginia so far," he continued. "Those were for junior days, and I went up to Rutgers' scrimmage ... the Red and White game.

"Rutgers was real fun. I liked it a lot. I liked the practice and the tempo of the practice.

"Pitt was real good, too. I liked the tour they had me go on. At West Virginia I liked the sports facilities and their practice."

It's still early and you can bet Williams will be holding out to see just how many offers he can pick up. In the meantime he has determined that a couple of schools are looking pretty good.

"I really liked the Pitt visit. I'd say that was the best trip. So far I like Pitt and Iowa the best."

Williams said he would be a better fit in a pro-style offense than a spread offense.

He said he does not have any summer plans just yet.
