As reported on Friday afternoon by, there was a possibility that West Roxbury (Mass.) Catholic Memoral linebacker Camren Williams could make a mid-week visit to Ohio State. That possibility is now a reality as the four-star linebacker and his family arrived in Columbus shortly after 5:30 PM eastern time on Sunday evening.

"Yes (we are in Columbus) we just arrived," said Williams' Father Brent Williams.

Williams, a Penn State commit, is one of just a few targets that head coach Urban Meyer and his staff are heavily pursuing at the linebacker position as the Buckeyes hope to add at least one more player at the position before National Signing Day.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound prospect has begun to speak with a few programs following the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State but has remained committed to the Nittany Lions. Williams is also receiving interest from Notre Dame and Michigan.

The elder Williams had told back on Friday that a mid-week visit was likely as the family hoped to use next weekend to celebrate the Holidays as older son Brennan Williams, an offensive lineman at North Carolina, would be home on his break.

As of now, the status of the visit is still up in the air. What is not up in the air, however, is the length of the visit, which will technically begin on Monday morning.

"That is yet to be determined," said Brent Williams, when asked if the visit would be an official or an unofficial. "We'll be leaving on Tuesday morning."

Williams also said on Friday that a return trip in January was a strong possibility. Stay tuned to as we continue to track the latest on this situation.
