Williams Makes 23

It didn't take long after his Ohio State unofficial visit for Camren Williams to make up his mind on where he would be going to school. In fact, it only took a few hours for him to make it official that he would become an Ohio State Buckeye, letting the world know via Twitter of his decision.

If that's not enough, on Facebook, Williams said:

After talking it over with my family. I have decided that I will attend THE Ohio State University. It's the best fit for me academically, athletically, and socially. I'm a Buckeye! Go Bucks

The 6-2/200 linebacker from Catholic Memorial in West Roxbury, Massachusetts took an official visit back in December to Ohio State and loved what he saw. There was a feeling then that the Buckeyes could really make a play for the 4-star prospect, especially with Penn State, the school he was committed to, without a head coach until over a week into January. Williams wanted to make the return trip with his mom to Columbus, doing so this weekend, obviously a visit that validated what he felt after his first experience in Columbus.

Williams becomes the 23rd member of this class and the 4th linebacker, joining Josh Perry, Luke Roberts, and David Perkins. There is a chance of a fifth linebacker joining the mix, as Durham (NC) Hillside's Jamal Marcus is visiting Columbus this weekend.

There is also the chance that the 24th member of the class may not be too far off from announcing as well. Williams' best friend, teammate, and godson of his father Brent, Armani Reeves, joined Williams on their trip to Columbus for an official visit. Reeves is a 4-star corner back, now a position of need for Ohio State, and is considering OSU, Michigan, and Penn State, where he is still currently a soft verbal.

We will try to catch up with Camren Williams to get the word from the horse's mouth on what made him make the switch, as well as see what he will do to try and flip his good friend Armani Reeves. The Urban Train keeps rolling so stay tuned to 11W for the latest news.
