Ishaq Williams is the crown jewel of the linebacker corps of this recruiting cycle. At 6'6" and 230 pounds with 4.6 speed, Williams creates havoc.
As a junior, Williams registered 11 sacks and was named All-City (New York Post) and first team All-City (New York Daily News).
Penn State and Syracuse are the other contenders for Williams' services, and Miami has been mentioned as a late contender. One of Al Golden's first moves after taking the helm at Miami was to make an in-house visit to Williams.
Syracuse may have a slight advantage due to the fact that both of Williams' parents went to school there. On the other side of the coin, Williams' father was spotted wearing a Notre Dame hat this weekend, for what its worth.
Williams was set to make an announcement this past Saturday at the Army All-American game, but he postponed it until later this week.
This one could go either way, but wherever Ishaq Williams ends up, he will make an immediate impact.
Williams is an early enrollee, and is being recruited by Bob Diaco.
