Class of 2017 Anderson (S.C.) T.L. Hanna quarterback Jackson Williamson has strong family ties to the University of South Carolina, but that doesn't mean he isn't interested in the Gamecocks' fiercest rival.
"My favorite camp this summer was probably Clemson," said Williamson, whose father Blake played quarterback for the Gamecocks from 1992-94. "I talked to Coach Swinney and Coach Morris, they thought I did well. There were a lot of good players there and there was good coaching. The camp was run real well and I liked that."
Williamson is still waiting on his first offer, which might come after he gets some more game film in the fall. In the meantime, he said he thinks he turned some heads at Clemson.
"I threw it pretty good," he said. "They gave me some attention and talked to me after camp, so I think it went well."
The Tigers exciting offense is a quarterback's dream, and Williamson said he's working on his speed and agility to become a better fit.
"I've been working on my speed a lot," he said. "They like guys that can throw and run and I've been getting a lot faster, so I think I would fit in well there."
Williamson also camped at South Carolina earlier in the summer and said that while the session was short, it was a day well spent.
"I did good there as well," he said. "It was just a one day camp for a few hours but I threw it pretty good there and I talked to Coach Mangus and Coach Spurrier a little bit. I know Coach Mangus but I'm still getting to know Coach Spurrier so that was cool."
