Tacoma Baptist standout offensive lineman Walker Williams will play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl at Phoenix in January.
Coincidentally, about an hour before receiving this release I spoke with Walker about setting up an interview for next week. He told me he’s planning to take an unofficial visit to the University of Wisconsin next week. Williams, who stands 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds, has scholarship offers from Washington, Colorado, UCLA, Utah, Oregon State and Wisconsin.
Williams is one of four Washington players selected to play in the game. Mariner running back Kei’Varae Russell, Mercer Island quarterback Jeff Lindquist and Juanita offensive lineman Nathan Dean are the others. Dean and Lindquist have already given oral commitments to the University of Washington, while Russell is mulling more than a dozen offers.
Here’s the release and list of players:
