QB Marquise Williams announces for UNC

Marquise Williams, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound quarterback from Charlotte, announced Saturday afternoon that he has decided to attend the University of North Carolina.

It came down between Carolina, Virginia Tech and Michigan. He also received scholarship offers from Boston College, East Carolina, Florida, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Louisville, NC State, Notre Dame, South Florida, Syracuse, UCLA and Wake Forest.

"I feel good about choosing UNC-Chapel Hill because it's a good fit for me," Williams said. "The coaches are great and I love the atmosphere on campus. Also, staying in North Carolina is important to me."

Inside Carolina ranks Williams as the No. 4 overall prospect in the state while Rivals.com ranks him as the No. 14 quarterback prospect nationally.

Oddly, a member of an LSU recruiting Web site titled tigerdroppings.com boldly proclaimed last Tuesday that Williams would announce for Carolina Saturday afternoon.
