Rivals250 defensive tackle Ian Williams made the trip to the Auburn camp last week but it appears the one team is still a big leader on the rest.
The 6-foot-1, 300-pound Longwood (Fla.) Lyman defender received his first scholarship offer from Florida. Though the Gators have been joined by Alabama, Clemson, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Central Florida, Williams says that no one has a higher spot in his mind than Florida.
"They were the first one to come after me and they've been on me the hardest since the beginning," Williams said about Florida. "I can't really say there is a No. 1 or No. 2. After Florida, it's pretty wide open."

Williams says that though he favors the Gators, he isn't going to make an early decision like he originally intended. He's looking to take his time and not rule anybody out too early.
"I just want to check everything out on all these other schools," Williams said. "I want to see what they have to offer, see their facilities, the campuses, and all that. I already know what Florida has to offer, so I want to get out a little bit. I'll decide after my football season this fall."
The trip to Auburn was definitely worth while. Williams says he got a chance to really see what things are like there.
"It went really well," Williams said about Auburn's camp. "I had fun, got to meet the coaches, some players, and it was just a great experience."
Williams has even started to think about official visits. He says that Florida is the only one he knows for sure at this point. As for camps, a couple others are possible.
"I'm not financially able to go to a bunch of camps on my own," Williams said. "One of my teammates is heading up to Virginia for their camp, so I may just go up there to go with him."
