Michigan in Strong Shape with NCar QB
"I bring those qualities to the table I bring that vibe of winning," he told GoBlueWolverine. "I love football. My guys make mistakes I tell them not to get down on themselves. I push my teammates -- if I work hard they are going to work hard as well."
There is also another trait that makes him feel good about the direction he is going in as a person.
"I stay humble," he said. "That is what my father has taught me. I see some guys that are arrogant, and that's never going to be me. I make sure that I am respectful to everyone, and that is something I am very proud of."
With those qualities, no one is surprised at the attention that Marquise is receiving from colleges all over the country. While he is still wide open with the schools that he is looking at, there are three schools that stand out.
"North Carolina, Michigan and Notre Dame," he stated." "I will be taking officials to all three of those schools."
Marquise talked about what he likes about each school.
North Carolina- "They show me so much respect. It's close to home and my cousin Robert Williams attended their a few years back. My family could come and see me play as well."
Michigan- "THE BIG HOUSE! Michigan is a special program; playing in front of 100,000 fans would be fun."
Notre Dame- "My coach talks to Coach Kelly. I like the coaches who want me, and they like what I can do. I like their offense as well."
Williams clearly knows a lot about the Maize and Blue and what they are trying to do.
"Me and my dad always wanted to talk with Coach Rodriguez. We like him a lot -- we like his style. Coach Rodriguez just needs time to turn things around."
Michigan sent an assistant coach to Mallard Creek just last week to show just how serious they are about Marquise, and the visit seems to have went very well.
"Coach Tony Gibson was in to my school last week to talk with my coaches," Williams said.
Marquise is also looking forward to a visit to Michigan in the fall. "I will be coming to the Michigan State game on October 9 to see what the Big House is all about."
The young man out of Carolina should have no problems qualifying with a 1780 on his SAT's.
"Academics are very important," he said. "I would like to major in communications and have a job in sports broadcasting. It's all about life after football and being a good man like my dad. My dad wants to see me do well."
Williams also has expectations for what he wants out of a school that he attends.
"I am looking to get on the field early and a chance to play early. I am looking for a good community I can be a part of. The head coach needs to have my best interest at heart as far as looking after me and getting on me if I am not working hard in the classroom and on the field."
