Aaron Williams Q&A: Updates on 2018 offseason and recruiting plans

Rising Senior Running Back Aaron Williams is coming off of a 1,264 yard and an 11 touchdown season as a junior in 2017 for the Salmen Spartans of Slidell, Louisiana.

Williams is the No.1 running back in that state and a three-star recruit who only had five offers when we last spoke in March. In the summer alone he has received 14 scholarships offers. The summer offers include Chabot College, Antelope Valley College, CMP Academy, Stevenson University, Greenville University, Birmingham Southern College, South Carolina A&M, Carroll College, Monmouth University and more.

His recruitment is 100 percent open still and he has not sat down with his family and discussed a commitment date yet.

“When that time comes, I hope it will be the best choice. I know God will lead me to the right path,” Williams said.

Dimoro Sports: What has your offseason been like as far as workouts, camps etc.?

Williams: “My offseason has been great. I’ve been going to camps meeting new coaches and building a better team chemistry.”

Dimoro Sports: How would you describe your growth as a player and as a person from when you started playing high school football until now?

Williams: “I feel that I’ve gained a lot of confidence, especially going into my senior year of high school. My game has gotten a lot better from last year. I have the chance to lead my team to success.”

Dimoro Sports: What are your goals for your senior season as far as offers and stats?

Williams: “My goal is to help lead my teammates into another successful year. This is a great group of guys. As far as [the] individual part, I plan on leading Louisiana in rushing years and hopefully win a state title.”

Dimoro Sports: How do you want your university to further not only your football career but your life off the field as well?

Williams: “I just want it to feel like a home. Somewhere where I feel comfortable and will fit in on and off the field. I hope it helps me to be a better man as well.”

Dimoro Sports: What are your expectations in terms of coming in and learning from veterans of the football program in order to one day get a starting spot?

Williams: “I believe that the guys that are going to surround me are leading me in the right direction into being a better athlete.”

Dimoro Sports: When you finally commit, what emotions are you going to feel knowing that the process is over and you can focus now on football and school? 

Williams: “When I commit, I pray that this will be one of the greatest moments in my life. I always dreamed to be the best and playing football at the college level. All the hard work will pay off and God will bless my family and [me] down the road to success. Whenever that day comes I can finally say that I’ve accomplished one of my dreams then get back to work.”
