"He's still going back and forth a little," said Imhotep coach Albie Crosby, who is in California this week with Williams. "I don't think he's made up his mind."

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Williams, a 4,700-yard career rusher who helped the Panthers advance to the PIAA Class AA state semifinals in the recently completed season, took an official visit to Arizona State in the fall. He took an unofficial visit to South Carolina last summer.

Crosby said both Arizona State head coach Todd Graham and South Carolina boss Steve Spurrier made stops at Imhotep toward the end of the season.

In addition to Williams, the other locals participating in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl are Penn Charter lineman Mike McGlinchey, Roman Catholic wideout Will Fuller, and George Washington defensive end Justin Moody.

McGlinchey and Fuller are both headed to Notre Dame; Moody is reportedly leaning toward Pittsburgh while also considering California and Purdue

The all-star contest is scheduled for 6 p.m. (Pacific time) at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. It will air live (9 p.m. here)  on the NFL Network.
