Clemson should hear from Williams this month

May 2, 2014 

With Clemson among his final four schools, TE Garrett Williams of Orlando expects to announce his decision in the next few weeks. His spring game is set for May 22nd and Williams plans to make his announcement sometime before that.

"I'm just really praying about it a lot and seeing where God leads me," Williams said. "I'm talking with my parents and just praying a lot."

Williams has Clemson, Florida State, Auburn and Stanford as his final four with no leader. He will not take any more visits until after his decision is made.

"I've already been to Clemson several times and am familiar with their culture and how they do things," he said. "They're very much in the picture. They've been by this spring already but we couldn't talk long. They just told me why I should come there and things like that."

Williams says there are very strong reasons for him to pick Clemson. "I love their coaching staff. I've known them since the beginning of my recruitment and they haven't changed at all. They are great men, men of God, and incredible coaches. I feel really comfortable with everyone on that coaching staff. And it's a great system for the tight end. They use him a lot and run a great system for the tight end."

Williams said Clemson has been recruiting him very hard. Stanford has also visited in this spring with Auburn and Florida State still to come. Auburn wants him to visit one more time before his decision and Williams will talk with his dad about that, but with spring football getting underway, he does not think he'll be able to get that in.

Williams said that he does not have a leader and is waiting for God to reveal to him which program he should choose. "Hopefully, that will come soon," he said.
