Anthony Williams has been one of the most coveted defensive line prospects from the south. Williams, 6-4 and 230 pounds, is from McDonough (Ga.) Union Grove High School. He now has 20 scholarship offers. His last two were monster ones and Williams is excited about what's happening in his life.
"Florida State and LSU offered me," Williams said. "They came by practice yesterday and gave me a verbal offer. I was down there last year for a game and I love the atmosphere. There is so much tradition there. Jody Allen is recruiting me. I have spoken with him a few times now. I really like him and he answers all my questions. We are beginning to build chemistry. FSU is definitely a top choice for me.
"I called LSU today and talked with coach (Don) Yanowsky. He was telling me they are rebuilding their defense and I was a definite offer. I took that as a verbal offer. I guess I will wait until the mail comes (written offer). LSU is the big time. It's the SEC. They whipped my team (Georgia Tech) this year. LSU is team I have always watched."
Other big time offers for Williams are from Georgia Tech, Auburn, South Carolina, and Stanford. He has seen both the Yellow Jackets and Tigers and recently claimed those two as his leaders. Is that still the case?
"Right now it's open. It's getting bigger for me but it's getting harder at the same time. I would love to visit some schools this summer. I want to visit Oklahoma State and Stanford. I need to set up a calendar after spring ball and I will visit schools. But I have no idea at this point."
Last season as a junior Williams recorded 80 tackles and eight sacks. He's a four-star prospect and the No. 18 strong-side defensive end prospect in the country.
