Timber Creek High School's Zaire Williams has made no secret of his affection for West Virginia during the recruiting process, and he cemented that relationship with a commitment to the Mountaineer football program on Monday evening.

Making an announcement following summer workouts, Zaire Williams became the eighth commitment in the class of 2013 at West Virginia. A stocky and explosive runner, Williams had offers from Pitt, Iowa, Connecticut, Temple and Wisconsin, among others.

As a junior at Cherokee High School, Williams mixed power and quickness to amass 1,621 yards and 28 touchdowns. He did all of that work on just 195 carries, averaging 8.3 yards per carry. He since transferred to New Jersey power Timber Creek, and since doing so his recruitment has grown by leaps and bounds.

Williams has already visited WVU's campus twice, once for the spring game and later for West Virginia's 7-on-7 camp, which his team won. While there, he built a good relationship with running backs coach Robert Gillespie.

Williams is set to make his official visit to West Virginia when the Mountaineers open the 2012 season on Sept. 1.

Scout.com's Briah Dohn is on the scene at Williams' announcement, and will file more reports soon. We will have videos and interviews with Williams and his coach Rob Hinson coming up shortly on BlueGoldNews.com.
