Williams wants to return to Trojans

Kept out of the NFL draft by the courts, wide receiver Mike Williams will ask the NCAA to let him return to college football. Williams said he is leaving agent Mike Azzarelli and has sent Southern California paperwork to file with the NCAA that could make him eligible to play for the Trojans in the fall. Williams, who finished fourth in Heisman Trophy balloting as a sophomore, was part of a failed challenge to an NFL rule that bars players from the draft until they are out of high school for three years.
