By now, most recruiting fans are fully aware of Trotwood (Ohio) Madison's outstanding junior class. The Rams have at least a handful of future division I prospects in the class and one that is ready to emerge this fall is defensive end Trey Williams-Brown. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound prospect is hoping for a breakout season after a rigorous summer on the camp circuit.
"I went to Ohio State, Alabama, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Toledo, and Bowling Green," said Williams-Brown.
Williams-Brown said the Ohio State camp in particular was one of his better performances.
"I got to talk to the coaches while I was there and I loved that camp," he said. "It was one of my favorite camps I went to this summer."
Though it's early, Williams-Brown was able to get out to a lot of schools over the summer and so far three have stood out to him.
"I like Ohio State, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt," he said.
On Ohio State - "Just the atmosphere. They want to win and I want to be a part of a program that wants to win."
On Tennessee - "They have the biggest stadium and they're in the SEC."
On Vanderbilt - "Just the fact that they want to win and they are trying to build the program. That would be fun to be a part of."
On the field, Williams-Brown is hoping to carry the momentum from his camp performances towards a big junior season and he has some big goals for his team this fall.
"I expect as a team that we're going to go farther and win that last game," he said. "We're not going to lose, I have a lot of expectations for this year."
Williams-Brown will have plenty of help behind him from arguably the best secondary in Ohio as well as a solid group of linebackers. Williams-Brown says that playing with other big-time players makes his job easier and raises his level of play.
"It helps you out because you see the level that they play at and it raises your expectations to that level," he said. "The whole team tries to play at that level so we all play better as a team."
Individually, Williams-Brown has been working hard on the intracacies of playing defensive end and he assessed his strengths and weaknesses.
"I think that I'm faster than most offensive linemen off the ball and I'm smart," he said. "I think that I can read offenses real well. I'm working on getting quicker feet, quicker hands, and explosion."
