Kevin Williams commits to the Warriors!

About his commitment to the Warriors, Kevin Williams (CB from Los Medanos College in Pittsburg, CA) said:
“Yes, I’m going to be a Warrior.” (HA)

HA Note: “Williams, who is 5 feet 10 and 175 pounds, is capable of running 40 yards in under 4.4 seconds. At the scouting combine at Chabot Junior College this past summer, Williams was timed at 4.34 seconds in the 40. He ran 4.39 at an earlier combine. He also ran the pro shuttle in 4.01 seconds. And he bench pressed 185 pounds 15 times. once gave him a 4-star rating last year. Williams had received offers from Akron, Arizona, Arizona State, Memphis, Oregon State, Toledo, Utah State and West Virginia.”

About the “soft” verbal commitment he gave Memphis this past summer, Williams said:
“But that’s nothing. Hawai’i is where I’m going. I like the program, and I like the coaches, especially coach Rolo.” (HA)

HA Note: “Williams knew Nick Rolovich, now UH’s quarterbacks coach, when he was an assistant coach at City College of San Francisco last year.”

HA Note: “As a senior at Gibbs High School in Florida in 2006, Williams accepted an offer from South Florida. Although Williams did well in school, he did not pass the so-called Florida exit test, a comprehensive exam that is administered to all Florida high school seniors. During the fall of 2006, Williams worked. Although he eventually passed the Florida exam, he opted to play football at a junior college. It was then that he decided to enroll at City College of San Francisco in January 2007. But Williams found that school and living expenses were expensive for an out-of-state student.”

About how he couldn’t afford the out-of-state expenses at CCSF, Williams said:
“I couldn’t afford it.” (HA)

HA Note: “He then transferred to Los Medanos, whose Pittsburg campus is an hour’s drive from San Francisco.”

About Williams, CCSF head coach George Rush said:
“He’s a good guy.” (HA)

HA Note: “In 2007, Williams had three interceptions and 27 pass breakups in 10 games. He also had two kick returns for touchdowns. This season, he has three interceptions, two of which he parlayed into returns for touchdowns. He plays man and zone in the Mustangs’ 3-5-3 defensive scheme. Williams also has played on offense this season. He has six receptions for 187 yards and a touchdown. He has scored on a rush.”

About how he kept in contact with Rolo after he transferred from CCSF, Williams said:
“When I found out he went to Hawai’i, I became very interested in Hawai’i. I follow all of the Hawai’i games.” (HA)

HA Note: “Williams said he would like a chance to play on both offense and defense. Ryan Mouton has had a similar dual role for the Warriors this season. Williams, according to scouts, has skills that are comparable to Mouton’s. Both are about the same build.”

About how he wants Mouton’s jersey #2, Williams said:
“I do want No. 2. That was the number I had since Pop Warner. I love that number.” (HA)

About how he wore #2 every season except for the first 2 years of high school, Williams said:
“Ever since then, I’ve worn that.” (HA)

HA Note: “Williams said he expects to earn his associate degree in January. He said he likely will move to Hawai’i next summer. Williams said he has three years to play two seasons.”

About how he focuses on school, football, and his 9-month-old son Kevin Williams Jr., Williams said:
“My focus is on school and my family.” (HA)

About how he likes UH’s uniforms, Williams said:
“I love their uniforms. They’re really different.” (HA)

About how he wants to do the ha’a, Williams said:
“I like when they do the (ha’a) dance. I told the coaches, ‘I want to learn that.’ ” (HA)
