South Carolina commitment linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams is steadfast in his plan to sign with USC at 9 a.m. on National Signing Day. And he's told the Gamecock coaches that.
Yet he continues to keep the Gamecock fans a bit on edge with flirtation with other SEC schools.
He visited Alabama last weekend and will visit Georgia this weekend. On Tuesday, Georgia coach Mark Richt made an in home visit with Allen-Williams.
"He came to the house and talked to me and my mother about what UGA has to offer as far as me being a Georgia boy," Allen-Williams said. "They tried to sell me on their program. They didn't negatively talk South Carolina or anything. It was a good visit. Coach Richt is a good person. They really don't think I'm going to sign with them. The coaches told me to just come up there and experience what UGA has to offer for free."
Never miss a local story.
Allen-Williams added that he doesn't foresee anything Georgia or Alabama can say or show him that will turn him from his Gamecock commitment.
Allen-Williams has worked hard behind the scene to encourage other USC targets to join him in Columbia. This weekend he'll be with DB Wesley Green in Athens, a prime USC recruiting subject. The two are close friends and speak often.
"I think Wesley's all Gamecock in my personal opinion," Allen-Williams said. "I think he's all Gamecock and just going up to Georgia to listen to what they have to say also. I'm not going to try to sell him on South Carolina because he already knows everything about South Carolina he needs to know. Come Signing Day I think we're probably going to get him."
Allen-Williams' father played defensive end at NC State and in the NFL with the Giants.
On Wednesday morning, Allen-Williams said via Twitter: "Just got off the phone with my future head coach Coach Spurrier."
