DE Andrew Williams of McDonough, GA has a top ten in his head but is not ready to reveal it to the world. However, he confirmed Sunday night Clemson and USC remain very active with him. “I have a good relationship with coach Hobby (Clemson) and coach Adams (USC),” Williams said. Adams was by to check on Williams last week and Hobby plans to visit Tuesday. Williams has visited USC, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Georgia and Georgia Tech this spring. He plans to visit USC again in early May with good friends Bryson Allen-Williams and Wesley Green. Right now Williams said his favorites are “all bunched together” and he hopes to release the top ten in a couple of weeks after consulting with his parents. Virginia was by his school Monday. Williams said several factors will come into play as he forms his decision. “The scheme, the coaches, the interaction with the players and coaches, the school itself and if it has a good business school,” he said. “Could I see myself going there if I didn’t play football.” Williams hopes to make his decision before his senior season.
Not since the days of Raymond Felton Jr. on the hardwood have recruiters had the need to enter Latta into their GPS. But OL Donnell Stanley is drawing the college coaches back to the small Pee Dee town in Dillon County. Thursday Ohio State recruiter Everett Withers visited with Stanley at school and North Carolina recruiter Vic Koenning took in his baseball practice. Clemson’s offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell came in on Friday, and USC offensive line coach Shawn Elliott was on hand for Stanley’s baseball game Saturday night. Stanley went 1 for 3 with a double, three RBI and a stolen base in an 11-2 win over Whale Branch. Stanley has been concentrating on baseball in recent weeks and has put recruiting on the back burner. He has visited USC and North Carolina this spring and he plans to get to Clemson this summer.

Asked if those are still his top three schools, Barker replied, “for now.” Barker also wants to see which schools besides those three show strong interest in him during his spring practice. Barker right now plans to make his decision in May but has not set a definite date.
