OL Trammell Williams (6-3 285) of Jacksonville, FL has been committed to USC since the summer and he's holding to that pledge despite the departure of line coach Eric Wolford for Youngstown State.
"Coach Wolford was one of the main reasons I was coming there, but with the bond I've created with the other coaches and recruits and the fans, we're going to piece it together without him," Williams said. "As of right now, I'm with South Carolina, no doubt. I don't really pay attention to the other schools. South Carolina has been there from the get go."
Williams said Gamecock recruiter Steve Spurrier Jr. has visited him three times, and he talked to head coach Steve Spurrier earlier this week. "He said he had over 48 contacts from other offensive line coaches," Williams said. "He said he's not going to rush into hiring a new coach."
Despite the strong words for USC, Williams said he is thinking of setting official visits with Ole Miss and Florida State. Florida State recruiters have been in to see him. He is scheduled for his official visit to USC January 15th.
