During the last month, Longwood (Fla.) Lyman defensive tackle Ian Williams has been busy making unofficial visits and collecting new scholarship offers.
Currently, the battle for Williams' services is dead heat between two archrivals.
"Nothing has really changed," he said. "I like Florida and Florida State equally. I don't really have a clue where I want to go."

The Gators have offered Williams a scholarship and were one of the first programs to do so. This past weekend, the 6-foot-1, 300-pounder made an unofficial visit to Gainesville to check out UF.
"It went great," Williams said. "It was their first day in pads, so I got to see how they hit right before they play a game."
Williams' high school defensive line coach is a Florida graduate and served as a tour guide.
"He took us around the school and showed us everything," he said.
Co-defensive coordinators Charlie Strong and Greg Mattison are the recruiters-of-record from Florida for Williams.
"They are both great guys," Williams said. "Charlie Strong is a great guy and I look forward to getting to know him better."
Unlike the Gators, the Seminoles have yet to extend Williams an offer.
"I had been talking to (FSU defensive line coach) Odell Haggins and he said that he was going to wait to offer me when he saw me," Williams said. "They, when I went up to Tallahassee for Junior Day, he didn't say anything about an offer.
"I was a little disappointed that they didn't offer."
Williams added that he was hopeful Florida State would come through with an offer in the near future and enjoyed his time in Tallahassee.
"It was a dream come true to be standing in front of (Seminoles head coach) Bobby Bowden and (defensive coordinator) Mickey Andrews," Williams said.
Haggins and Billy Sexton are leading the charge for FSU.
Williams will visit Miami (Fla.) on the weekend of April 15. He added that he will make a commitment either following or toward the end of his senior season.
Clemson, Central Florida, Auburn and Ole Miss are the other schools to offer a scholarship to Williams, who was a first-team Class 5A All-State selection in 2005 and posted 23 tackles-for-loss.
"I just go out there and do what I have to do to help my team win," he said. "I use what God gave me to do my best."
