Newbold still solid
Damien Williams didn’t make the Rivals.com list of the top 50 junior college football recruits in the nation this season. Obviously, Arizona Western coach Tom Minnick didn’t get a vote.
Williams, a 6-foot, 210-pound running back, reopened his recruitment when Arizona State fired head coach Dennis Erickson in late November. He quickly attracted scholarship offers from Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas Tech, where he has a visit scheduled this weekend. Williams rushed for nearly 2,000 yards this season for a Yuma, Ariz., program that finished 11-1 and ranked No. 3.
