DL Chris Williams of Tyrone, GA has a top five of Ole Miss, Tennessee, USC, Texas A&M and Ohio State in that order.

"I like South Carolina because I like coach (Deke) Adams and coach (Steve) Spurrier," said Williams. "Coach Spurrier seems like a real cool guy and I like the campus and the area. I like Columbia."

Ole Miss is the team to beat for this services. "I've got a real good relationship with their coaches," he said. " Williams plans to visit Ole Miss next week and does not have any other visits scheduled.
