DE Jordan Williams of Virginia Beach, VA has a top four of Clemson, Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech and an announcement date of August 6th at 5:00 PM at his school. He wrapped up his visits to his finalists this weekend at Clemson arriving Friday for the cookout and staying thru Saturday night.
Williams went into the visit, he said, basically with his mind made up. None of the four know who holds that spot in Williams’ mind and heart so Clemson’s coaches had to work him as if trailing late in the fourth quarter.
“It was great, great to be around all the guys and be able to see all the coaches,” Williams said. “It was more academic and we looked at all the campus this time and looked in the dorms. That was great for me because with me committing soon I could try and compare all the schools to Clemson and to each other. It was definitely good for me to be able to get here to see that and be able to listen to all the academic stuff they had to tell me.”
The Clemson coaches also had some football things to talk with him about as well.
“They are definitely expressing a need for my position and telling me how they feel like I’m the typical Clemson player,” Williams said. “We were really just catching up talking with Coach Swinney, Coach Hobby, Coach V (Venables) and all those guys.”
Williams said he notified all four schools that this would be his last visit and he said he will let the school he chooses know in advance of his announcement.
“They all know that I know what I’m expecting if I do choose to go to that school academic wise and football wise and college life wise,” he said.
As for a grade on this Clemson visit, Williams said “it was definitely a 10. Ten on all cylinders.” He agreed that the visit was helpful for the Tigers.
Williams plans to pull one hat out of a bag and open his jacket to reveal a shirt of the winning program at his announcement ceremony on the sixth.
