Louisiana’s Ragin’Cajuns first football commitment in the 2010 Class Amari Williams out of Mainland HS in Florida, visited Lafayette for the first time this past weekend.
committed to Louisiana back in June last summer, but had never the campus until this past weekend. The “6-1”, 237-pound FB/HB is a member of the Orlando Sentential Central Florida Top 50 football prospects, was more then ready to visit the program he committed to early on.
“Coach Brown had talked about the program and where UL is heading, but I really didn’t know what to expect from my official visit,” Williams stated. “But once we toured the athletic facilities and campus, I knew I had made the right decision when I committed. I really loved the football field and indoor practice facility.”
Amari Williams host for the weekend was another Florida native from Mainland High,
“It was great to have someone I know like Orkeys as my host,” said Amari. “We talked a lot about the program and he introduced me to some of the other guys in the program, and he told me he really loves the Lafayette area. It’s great to hear good things about the Cajun program from someone I have known for some time and from my hometown.”
As much as Amari Williams loves the Ragin’Cajun program, word got out several weeks back that he had some interest in visiting
“That was one of those things that just took on a life of its own,” Williams stated. “A Marshall coach called me and asked if I would consider taken a visit up there and I told him I would think about it. I get a call from some guy with Super Prep and he asked about Marshall and I told him if they were offering, I would have to think about taking a visit. I thought about it some, but once Coach Brown called and we spoke, I really didn’t think about it again. Now that I visited UL, there is no doubt in my mind that I have made the right decision from day one.”
Williams had the opportunity to sit down and look at film of the Cajun offense with his new position coach, Justin Lustig.
“We watched some film of the offense and talked about what they my position’s role was last season and will be this year,” said Amari. “Coach Lustig told me that my main competition for playing time will be
and my opportunity to play as a true freshman will depend upon how well I compete the first two weeks this fall.”
Amari Williams should meet NCAA eligibility requirements, scoring 19 on his last ACT test and maintaining a 2.9 GPA in his core subjects.
