Sophomore running back Stanley Williams of Bethlehem (Ga.) George Walton Academy gave his verbal to Georgia last July, but at the moment he is listening to pitches from other schools.
"I'm committed to UGA, but I'm still open," Williams told Rivals.com. "Even though I'm committed, I want to see what other [programs] have. I want to see where they'll try to fit me at."
LSU could be one program to watch. According to Williams, the Tigers are showing "big interest."
"I just got back in town from LSU a few days ago," Williams said. "The first day I got there, I was just talking to the running backs coach and he was telling me they wanted to put the ball in my hands and get me in space. The second day, I met with Coach [Les] Miles in his office. We talked for about an hour. It went well. He talked about putting me on both sides of the ball. He told me to come back and spend some time with him this summer. I'll be back there in June. There's a camp June 14. There's definitely interest in them. Them and Clemson. If I don't go to Georgia, I might go there."
Other schools also apparently are trying to get involved.
"I'll be down at Florida this weekend and Alabama next weekend for the spring games," Williams said. "Florida said they'd actually been looking at me for awhile They said the reason they haven't said anything [until recently] is because they didn't think I'd be interested. They found out I would be. I'm also supposed to go to North Carolina and Michigan State, but I don't know when."
As for Georgia, Williams said he will visit the Bulldogs either this week or next.
"I heard from them two or three weeks ago," Williams said. "I talked to [assistant] coach Bryan McClendon and he said he was glad to hear from me. We talked for about five to 10 minutes, just catching up on some things. He said he's ready for me to get there so he can help me with things. He was excited. He wants me to come visit.
In 2011, Williams had nearly 1,500 all-purpose yards. He also played cornerback in some third-and-long circumstances.
