Sleeper DE impressive on camp circuit

At USC's Big Man Camp in mid June there was a defensive end that won every contest and even dusted highly rated players untouched to the bag for the win, much to the chagrin of the offensive lineman. He impressed with his quickness so they moved him to outside backer for the last two periods of the camp.

The sleeper defensive end/linebacker is Brent Williams (6-2, 200, 4.7) from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft.

As a junior, Williams earned second-team all-city section and first-team all-league honors after tying his school's single season sack record with 17 and breaking the school record with 29 tackles for loss. He has chance to set the school's career record in both categories his senior season. He 59 tackles his junior season while teams tried to avoid him.

Williams also went UCLA's camp in June where he worked out at outside linebacker, one of the positions he could be playing on the next level. He impressed UCLA enough to ask for his transcripts.

"A lot of schools are looking at Brent as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 or a rush end in a 4-3 alignment," Kersitetter said. "He was just out on the east coast camping with Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh.

"Both schools are showing a lot of interest in Brent," Kersitetter said. "It was very beneficial that he went to both east coast camps.
