DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - In the opening round of the Class 6A state playoffs, Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland dismissed Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson 31-14 at Daytona Beach Municipal Stadium. The Buccaneers got a great defensive effort from senior defensive end Leonard Williams.
"It feels great," Williams said of the victory. "I don't feel like we did as well as we could have. We also haven't won anything yet. We just have to keep moving forward."
While his primary focus is on his team's playoff run, the Rivals100 prospect also intends to continue the recruiting process over the coming weeks.
"I am going to take a visit next weekend to Florida," Williams said. "It is going to be my official visit to Florida. That will be my second official."
The 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end has always had an affinity for the Gators.
"With Florida I always liked them growing up," Williams said. "I like their coaches and their program."
The only official visit that the Sunshine State prospect has taken so far was to Auburn. He watched the Tigers defeat Florida in mid-October.
"It was great," Williams said of the visit. "I just really like the family atmosphere there. It felt like home. It just felt great. I just like their program and it feels like a family atmosphere there."
At this stage, Williams says that the Gators and Tigers are his top two schools. He said that one doesn't stand out above the other. While the two SEC programs are at the top for his services, some others remain in contention.
"I definitely plan to use my other three official visits," Williams said. "I plan to go see Florida State and USC. I still haven't chosen my fifth one. It is between Tennessee and Alabama, that is probably it."
Williams has no specific timeline for making a final decision.
