Notre Dame Offers California WR Chase Williams

Corona (Calif.) Eleanor Roosevelt product Chase Williams added Notre Dame Tuesday night to his offer list.

Notre Dame extended an offer to one of the top wide receivers in California Tuesday night in Corona (Calif.) Eleanor Roosevelt product Chase Williams.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder's offer list includes Notre Dame, USC, UCLA, Washington, Oregon and Georgia, among others.

Williams discussed with Blue & Gold Jab. 18 on the possibility of landing an offer from the Irish.

“It’s kind of a family school for me,” Williams said in the interview. “My family is from Ireland, so with the Fighting Irish, it’s a school that my family has always loved. That makes it a big school for me.

“It would be great,” he said. “It would be fantastic. I’d love to have an offer from Notre Dame. It’s known to be a very successful program.”

Williams is ranked as the No. 21 wide receiver and No. 131 player overall in the class. He is the No. 20 player in California.

This past season Williams racked up 1,007 yards and 19 touchdowns on 42 receptions during his junior season. According to his Hud, Williams runs a 4.57 40-yard dash and bench presses 235 pounds and squats 405 pounds.

Williams was in contact with former Irish offensive coordinator Mike Sanford before he left to take the head job at Western Kentucky.
