"It was a big stadium, I liked it a lot, it was beautiful there," he said. "That's the biggest stadium I've ever seen in my life and it was crazy, it was so amazing. I can't complain about anything, the guys were upset they lost, but I had a good time there.
"I like that they let their quarterback be free. Anywhere I go I'm going to try to be free anyway."
Following the game, Williams spent more time with his host, Denard Robinson.
"Denard is a humble quarterback, that's something like me," he said. "He takes control of things and is a good kid. I got to hang out with him along with J.T. Floyd and Devin Gardner. Like I said about Denard, he's not the cockiest person, he's a cat and likes to have fun. He just wanted mto show me a good time and taught me a lot of things."
On Sunday, Williams met with Coach Rodriguez.
"I hung out with Coach Rod and he talked about how things are and how they want me," he said. "He mentioned he's been wanting me since I was a freshman in high school."
Did Michigan move up the list from the visit?
"Yeah of course, I mean it's a great school and I like the atmosphere, it's more like family there, that's what I liked."
From here, the three-star prospect will head to Virginia Tech on Saturday for his second official visit.
"I'm just hoping to have a good time and see how things are," he said. "I just want to go and have a good time, see how the coaches are and talk to Coach Beamer."
Williams added a third official visit to NC State on November 13th. Previously he wasn't looking at the Wolfpack, but now claims he is.
