I can't help but notice that today isNational Signing Day
, that day when high school football stars sign their letters of intent to play for a certain college. And while I generally think the way some people so obsessively follow this is akin to those geeks who learn how to speak Klingon, I'm actually kind of hoping some of these experts can help me out.
Does anybody out there know to what college Dillon High’s Brian “Smash” Williams is committing? I know he had previously committed to TMU – and it was nice to see TMU not holding grudges against Dillon High players after TMU assistant coach Eric Taylor left early in the season to return as head coach of Dillon – but it was my understanding that TMU had rescinded its offer to Williams after that incident with the white boys at the movie theater.
I was just curious. The kid looks to be pretty good, but I haven’t been able to find any updates in the paper. So if anybody can help me out, I'd appreciate it. – John Royal
