North Carolina Shrine Bowl DL Arthur Williams (6-5 285) of Fayetteville plans to visit Miami, USC and Florida State the last three weekends in January and then make a final decision on Signing Day. Williams currently is committed to the Seminoles but wants to take a look at the Gamecocks and Hurricanes.
"I just want to see the classroom settings and sit down with the players and the staff," Williams said. "South Carolina seems like a real cool place. I could see myself going to school there."
Williams camped at USC last summer and has also been to Florida State and Miami. He's also visited Auburn, North Carolina, NC State and East Carolina.
Williams committed to Florida State October 22nd and he's not backing off that for now. "It's very strong," he said of his commitment. "Me and the coaches feel like nobody can take me away, but I'm keeping my options open and giving everybody a fair chance to recruit me."
Never miss a local story.
USC recruiters Joe Robinson and Deke Adams met with Williams earlier this month. He said they did not make him an official offer but he feels one is close. "They are real cool, down to earth and very understanding," he said. "They just want me to get down to the campus, meet with the defensive coordinator and look at my grades and I should get an offer."
Williams has had an in home visit with Florida State while Miami met with him at his school.
This season Williams had 104 tackles and 6 sacks.
