Jesse Williams commits to the Warriors (6’5″, 310-pounds!)

About his commitment to the Warriors, 6’5″, 310-pound DL Jesse Williams (from Bisbane, Australia) said:
“I accepted their (scholarship) offer. I like the style of football they play. That tough defense, that’s how I like to play. That’s the school that won me over.” (HA)

HA Note: “Williams, who already has graduated from high school, competes in basketball. He can bench press a maximum 440 pounds. The UH coaches first noticed Williams during a tour of Australia in May 2007. Williams then paid his own way to visit Hawai’i in September 2007.”

About how he didn’t know much about Hawaii until he visited last September, Williams said:
“Just the usual — the beaches, surf. I went over there to see for myself.” (HA)

About attending 2 UH practices, touring the campus, and meeting with academic counselors during his unofficial visit last September, Williams said:
“I checked it out, and I liked it there. From there, we organized all of the academic stuff.” (HA)

About Hawaii, Williams said:
“It’s a nice place. The weather is pretty similar to over here. It gets a little colder here, but there’s not a drastic change.” (HA)

HA Note: “Williams said he currently works fulltime for a landscaping company. He said he works mainly on property maintenance, especially backyards.”

About how his father Arthur serves as his inspiration, Williams said:
“It’s the way he got through life. He came from a poor background. He changed everything.” (HA)

HA Note: “Williams said he will take an official visit to UH in December. But he already notified UH of his choice. He said he hopes to enroll at UH in January.”
