Eric Williams, a Class of 2012 forward from Iowa, has verbally committed to Drake, according to his family.

He plays club soccer for West Des Moines SC.

Williams was an all-tournament selection at last spring's Iowa high school state championships, where he helped Valley (West Des Moines, Iowa) to a state runner-up finish. Williams scored two goals in the team's state semifinal victory over Iowa City West (Iowa City, Iowa). Valley ended the season with a 22-2 record.

Williams is the third confirmed commitment to Drake, joining Alexander Troester of Iowa and Brandon Welter of Minnesota.
