SAF Myzel Williams (6-1 182) of Deltona, FL was offered by USC in December and the Gamecocks remain his lone Power 5 offer at this point. He’s expecting more to come on board but that might not matter to him. After visiting with his parents and a teammate Saturday, Williams has his eyes squarely on the Gamecocks.
“Number one, they are number one right now,” Williams said. “I go to Florida State next week and depending on how that visit goes, anything can change. But as of right now, because I just enjoyed it so much, South Carolina is number one.”
“It went like really good, everything about it was amazing,” Williams said of his visit. “From the tour, looking at the facilities, and talking with coach T-Rob (Travaris Robinson) and coach (Will) Muschamp, all of it was good. They like the fact I’m versatile, can play different positions. Coach T-Rob expressed a lot that they like that in their DBs. They like DBs, that can play safety, nickel, corner because they play up to six DBs on the field at times. Guys that can play different positions will get on the field quicker.”
But what Williams really liked the most about his visit was how the coaches talked to him and what they had to say.
“That was the thing that I liked the most,” Williams said. “The fact that they kept it real with me. They just didn’t tell me the good stuff, they were telling me the facts about it. They just didn’t say it was going to be perfect, they told me how it would be. They just didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear, they told me everything.”
Williams wants to return to USC this summer, possibly for an official visit. He is looking at early in his season on a decision, and he will sign in December though he’s not certain yet on early graduation.
Other offers for Williams include Liberty, South Florida, FAU and Charlotte. Florida State, Virginia Tech and Bowling Green also are showing interest.
Last season Williams had 28 tackles and 5 interceptions. He has not been ranked in the 247Sports composite at this point.
