Blair Angulo for ESPN.comNarbonne quarterback Troy Williams, who will be a senior in the fall, received a scholarship offer from UCLA on Tuesday.
Harbor City Narbonne quarterback Troy Williams, one of the area's top prospects in the class of 2013, received a scholarship offer from UCLA on Tuesday.
"It means a lot," said Williams, who was one of the top junior signal-callers in the region last season. "I have the option to stay close to home and I could relate to a lot of the coaches who are on the staff because they are from L.A. so it's good."
Williams was named the CIF City Section player of the year after leading Narbonne to the Division I championship last season. He passed for 3,247 yards and 34 touchdowns, and also added 11 rushing scores.
Williams, who admits he was a USC fan growing up, says he might make a decision on a school before the beginning of next season.
"I was thinking about graduating early so I'll probably commit before my senior season or during the season," he said.
Williams, an early ESPNU 150 watch list member, also has offers from Bowling Green, Southern Methodist, Nevada, Washington and Washington State.
So is there a leading school at this point?
"No," he said. "Everybody's even right now."
