Marcus Williams Getting Looks in Two Sports
Williams has had a busy summer, splitting time between football camp and playing AAU basketball with Howard Pulley.
"I went to the Minnesota camp," he said. "I played in the All-American Camp in North Carolina. I plan on going to Illinois in July and Wisconsin and Iowa."
Williams, who runs a 4.4 40-yard dash, said that he is getting looks as a defensive back, both at cornerback and safety.
Williams averaged 7.8 points per game as a junior, leading the Royals to a 27-2 mark on the hardwood, losing twice to state champion Minnetonka.
Williams scored in double figures in eight games, including a season-high 19 points versus Robbinsdale Armstrong.
He is getting plenty of mid-major looks in basketball.
"I'm hearing from Northern Iowa, North Dakota State, Western Michigan, Utah State and Santa Clara," he said.
