Williams impressed with Ohio State

Last Sunday's junior day for Ohio State has been overshadowed by the final stretch run for the class of 2009 but make no mistake there was plenty of 2010 talent on hand in Columbus as approximately 15 seniors-to-be checked out a snowy Ohio State campus and were toured around by the Buckeye coaching staff.

East Cleveland (Ohio) Shaw wide receiver Tyrone Williams was one of the juniors in attendance and the 6-foot-5, 204-pounder came away very impressed with what he saw during his brief trip down I-71 to the capital city.

"It was good and fun," Williams said. "I had a chance to walk around and see all of the trophies and stuff."

The highlight for more recruits is the opportunity to check out the training facilities at the Woody Hayes Athletic Complex and that rang true for Williams who really enjoyed what he had a chance to see.

"The weight room is huge," Williams said. "I really liked the weight room a lot."

Williams didn't have the opportunity to talk with any of the current players but was hosted around campus by assistant coach Taver Johnson during his visit. Most of the other juniors had a chance to watch the Ohio State vs. Michigan State basketball game but Williams had to head back north with his coach before the game started that afternoon.

The tall receiver only saw action in five games during his junior season before being sidelined with an ACL injury. During those give games Williams had 11 receptions for 372 yards and eight touchdowns. Williams' most prolific came against Cleveland Heights where the junior wideout caught four passes for 132 yards. Williams also put up three touchdowns on three receptions a week before against Kennedy high school.

Williams is also interested in programs like Southern Cal, West Virginia and Illinois but also has a lot of interest in the in-state Buckeyes.

"They are a good football team and have good quarterbacks," Williams said. "They are a good program with good coaches."
