First stop Tuscaloosa

Tim Williams, four-star defensive end from University School in Baton Rouge, La., has plenty of options for his future. He plans to take several visits this summer with anticipation of announcing a decision before his senior season. Williams talked about an upcoming visit to Alabama and favorites.

"I know I am going to FSU, Florida and Miami," said Tim Williams. "I am going to both LSU and Alabama. This June I am going to be pretty busy.

"The first camp I am going to Alabama camp. That camp is on Sunday. I am only staying for one day though. I don't have any of the other visits scheduled yet."

Williams has been recruited by the University of Alabama since his freshman year. He has been a fixture at camps in Tuscaloosa the past few years.

"I am going to participate in the camp," he said. "Every time I went up there for camp I always worked out. I can always learn something new. I am going to work out at outside linebacker. That is where they are recruiting me to play."

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound athlete talked more about the return visit to Tuscaloosa.

"I have been talking to the coaches," Williams said. "They have just been expressing their interest in me as far as coming up there and playing for them. I have built a good relationship with them. I am just looking forward to getting to know those guys better both on-and-off the field."

Williams has elite programs from across the country in hot pursuit of his signature. The favorites will court him until signing day, but a decision will come much sooner.

"I would say LSU, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami and USC are coming at me the hardest," he said. "I could make a decision at the end of the summer. If not at the end then probably before my senior season starts. I'd say those are my favorites."
