#STRecruiting: #Gamecocks still in the game with Williams

Demarko Williams

Three-star CB/SAF Demarko Williams of Atlanta committed to USC in January. About two months later, he decommitted. Since then, Williams has seen his recruiting heat up. His offer list now includes Florida State, NC State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Maryland, Kentucky, Arkansas, Wake Forest, Minnesota, Oregon and Pitt. He’s wide open on his decision now, and that includes the Gamecocks. He has not shut the door on the possibility of committing again to Will Muschamp, and he talks regularly with him.

“I talk to them every day,” Williams said. “I talk to Muschamp, and as always, they want me. It’s the same as when they first started recruiting me, nothing different. They understood when I decommitted, the reasons.”

And those reasons were not about anything negative with the Gamecocks. It was about timing. After thinking over things, Williams figured out he had committed too soon and robbed himself of the opportunity to be fully recruited.

“The reason I decommitted was I just wanted to weigh my options out,” Williams said. “I committed too early as a junior. Going into my senior year, I feel like I need to weigh my options out. I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket.”

Along with USC, Williams said he hears a lot from Florida State, Ole Miss and Kentucky. He visited USC in January and when he can get back on the road he wants to check out Florida State, West Virginia, Ole Miss, Tennessee, NC State and Kentucky. In July he plans to narrow his list to a top five and he wants to make his next decision before the start of school.
