Dodge City C.C. wide receiver Stevin Williams signed a letter of intent Wednesday to attend the University of Louisville and teammate Nate Harris, according to DCCC coach John Rosetti, is expected to follow suit.

"I signed it today," the speedy Williams said Wednesday afternoon from his home. "I'll be sending it to Louisville in the next day or two."

Williams, who redshirted his first season at DCCC, suffered a broken ankle after two games this season. However, in those two games, Williams, who said he will enroll at U of L in January, pulled in 15 catches for 176 yards. He was granted a medical redshirt this season following his injury.

"Stevin has big-time speed," said Rossetti. "He's very strong and a physical player for his size. He runs good routes and has good hands. He will probably be a four year guy. He'll need to resubmit his medical redshirt papers to the NCAA, but I can't imagine that they would deny him that year."

Nate Harris, a talented linebacker prospect who also verbally committed to Louisville, is also expected to sign a national letter of intent with Louisville, according to Dodge City Community College coach John Rosetti.

"We finished up with finals here yesterday and Nate has already left to go home," Rosetti said. "So I can't confirm whether or not he's signed his letter but he left here with it and he told me he was going to sign it."

"There's nothing to indicate that he won't sign with Louisville," Rosetti continued. "He cancelled his other visits after he committed to Louisville and that's what I expect he will do."

Harris, a four-star prospect, is ranked the nation's No. 2 junior college linebacker prospect by Scout.com. He led the team with 86 tackles, including 16 for a loss and also tallied three interceptions and three fumble recoveries in just nine games. Harris, who committed to Miami as senior in high school, earned JC Grid-Wire All-American honorable mention honors as a sophomore. He'll have two years of eligibility at U of L and will join the Louisville program in late December.

"Nate is a very explosive player," Dodge City head coach John Rossetti recently told Inside The Ville. "His best asset is with the edge blitz, he comes off the edge very well. He runs well and is a physical type of guy."

Harris had offers from Arizona, Florida State, LSU, Mississippi State and others, while Williams picked the Cardinals over Toledo and Texas Tech.
