One of West Catholic’s most dynamic returning skill position players could wind up being one of the state’s most sought-after recruit in the 2013 recruiting class.

David Williams, a 6’1, 185-pound running back for the defending PIAA AA champion Burrs, has received interest, but no verbal offers, from six Division-1 programs, according to national recruiting service  Interested parties include Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt, Rutgers and Temple.

Williams finished as the #3 rusher for West Catholic a season ago, finishing with 924 yards and 17 touchdowns on exactly 100 carries.  He averaged 9.2 yards per carry and 71.1 yards per game, playing in 13 of the Burrs’ 15 games.  #33 posted six games with 80+ rushing yards, including a trio of 100-yard performances.  Two of Williams’ three 100-yard games came in the PIAA playoffs.

The Burr back had quite the coming out party in the PIAA finals against South Fayette, slashing and dashing through the WPIAL AA champion Lions’ defensive unit for 182 yards and a pair of touchdowns on just 14 carries.  His first touch from scrimmage against South Fayette resulted in an 80-yard touchdown run.

Williams was part of a potent Burr offensive unit which averaged 285 yards rushing and 36.5 per game last season.
