Ruston, La., defensive tackle Kyle Williams still lists LSU and Tennessee has his top team - and he also never thought that they'd be battling in the SEC Championship game.
"It's kind of funny," Williams, a four-star selection that is 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds, said.
"I thought there would be an outside chance of it happening, but I never dreamed it would come true."
And now his top two teams - the two schools he's already visited - are going to battle on the field again, just like they are battling for his commitment.
"I talked to both schools and they're going to be a little busy this week," Williams said. "Coach Fulmer said they're going to come to my house after they win the SEC title and before they go to the Rose Bowl. Coach Saban said the same thing about coming after they win, too."
But it should be noted that this is not just a two-horse race.
Williams said he was "blown away" by the electric atmosphere at LSU this weekend but also came away impressed with Auburn.
"I think they have like 70 kids that are underclassmen on their roster," Williams said. "They never gave up against LSU and kept fighting hard. They're making up a lot of ground right now."
Williams also pointed out that Nebraska coach Frank Solich is due to make his in-home visit with him on Tuesday. Solich will be in Tuesday evening, while Auburn is due in Tuesday afternoon.
"It's going to be a busy night," he said. "But it should be fun."
Williams said he still wants to have a decision made by Christmas.
