Tramell Williams had a good day and he didn't even go to school. Williams, 6-2 and 260 pounds, was home sick. While resting he received good news. Earlier in the day he received a scholarship offer from South Carolina. Then later he got one from Southern Miss.
"Southern Miss was (scholarship) No. 3," Williams said. "I really don't know much about them and will have to do my research. They came to a practice and I think I fit in well with their offense. I have talked with them a few times but I need to get comfortable with their overall program and go from there.
Williams had one offer going into today and that was from Vanderbilt. Then he got another one this morning.

"South Carolina offered me today," Williams said earlier on Monday. "It would really mean a lot for me to play for a great coach like coach (Steve) Spurrier. I love the direction that the program is going and I think that's a place where I have a great chance of getting on the field early. I'm going to visit there this summer and check out the program with my family and go from there.
