Three-star CB Demarko Williams of Atlanta, who committed to USC January 21st, Friday afternoon announced a decommitment from the Gamecocks. William had picked the Gamecocks over offers from Pitt, Minnesota, Wake Forest, Oregon, Tennessee, Maryland, Florida State, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Arkansas and others.
Williams attended a USC junior day in January and soon afterwards committed to the Gamecocks. At that time, he cited the opportunity to play all over the secondary as a primary reason.
“I want to play as much as possible so knowing the whole secondary increases my chances of playing a whole lot,” Williams said. “I’m just a DB. I know all the positions around the field and I can increase my chances of playing on the next level.”
Williams is ranked as the #54 cornerback n the country in the 247Sports composite and the #55 prospect in Georgia. His decommitment leaves the Gamecocks with three for the 2021 class to go along with two holdover specialists from 2020.
