Marshawn Williams Still Firm With Tech

It was great to see running back Marshawn Williams for the first time in a Phoebus uniform at Saturday’s Hampton University “Battle on the Bay” 7 on 7. There are certainly some Hampton Crabber fans that would disagree with that, but Williams had a fantastic debut in his own backyard. The Hampton/Phoebus rivalry will be hot once again this fall, but in the meantime, recruiting and camps fill the headlines. We talked with Williams at the event, and he had nothing but great things to say about the Hokies.

He’s looking more and more like a college ready prospect, and that’s what has college coaches interested.
