Offensive guard Julian Williams said last week that he was a soft verbal commit for NC State. Notre Dame was one of the schools trying to woo him in another direction. Did he visit the Irish over the weekend?
"No, I didn't make it up to Notre Dame," said the 6-foot-4, 291-pound guard from New Bern, N.C. "I don't think I'll be visiting Notre Dame. They're not really a school I'm considering right now. There are others I'm still looking at, but I'm pretty sure I won't be visiting Notre Dame."
What other schools is Williams interested in?
"Other than NC State it's basically just Virginia Tech and East Carolina. The coaches at those two schools have really impressed me and I've formed a little connection with them. I'm still a committed to NC State, but I'm keeping things open and just looking at what's out there."
The three-star lineman is rated the No. 27 guard in the nation and will announce his final decision on Signing Day.
