'Time-Out': LaMarcus Williams

LaMarcus Williams, the 6-1, 285-pound defensive tackle from Bastrop, (Louis.) is working hard this summer. We asked LaMarcus about his verbal commitment to Alabama, "It just felt like home. I wanted to secure my scholarship. Coach Harbison is my recruiting coach. He's crazy (laughing). He is very down to earth and made me feel at home." Williams tells us if other visits are planned as well.

"I will take my other visits," LaMarcus Williams said. "I don't want to close any doors."
