DL Chris Williams of Tyrone, GA has a current top four of Ole Miss, Ohio State, Tennessee and USC, but he said that’s not set in stone. “I’m very flexible with my list,” Williams said. “I’ve been talking to Ole Miss the longest.” He was planning to meet with his Ole Miss recruiter Thursday. He talked to Miami Wednesday. Williams has visited USC, Georgia, Tennessee and Ohio State and will be visiting Ole Miss. And he’s going to try to get back to USC. “I liked it,” he said of his first visit. “They have nice facilities and the coaches were pretty cool. Coach Spurrier is a real cool guy.” He is expecting USC coaches Joe Robinson and Deke Adams to visit him this spring. Williams also likes Georgia but the Bulldogs have not offered. He plans a decision around mid-season.
WR Braxton Berrios of Raleigh was offered Thursday by Tennessee. Berrios said he was called directly by Vols’ head coach Butch Jones with the offer. Berrios has been a USC target and he attended the spring game. He also has offers from East Carolina, Maryland, Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina, Minnesota, NC State, Kentucky and Georgia Tech. Berrios was offered by USC last season while visiting Columbia for the Tennessee game and has had the Gamecocks among his favorites.
LB Kendall Joseph of Belton Honea Path received an offer from Georgia Tech Wednesday bringing his total to seven. The Yellow Jackets join Clemson, Furman, Louisville, Duke, UCLA and Appalachian State. Joseph will visit Atlanta April 28th. “They like the way I play and think that I could be the leader, the quarterback of the defense,” said Joseph. Before heading to Georgia Tech, Joseph travels to Louisville. “They’re telling me pretty much the same thing everybody else is,” he said. “They want me at the Mike or Sam linebacker. They like my run-stopping abilities.” As for the Tigers he said, “I love Clemson. I got a chance to visit three or four weeks ago and I went to a spring practice. I talked to the coaches and I like what they’re doing there. They like my physicality.” Joseph does not have any favorites but did say he plans to announce his commitment in early-July.
