Busy July on Tap for Tennessee Four-Star

The class of 2016 safety will hit a trio of SEC programs and also an ACC school before camp begins.

JoeJuan Williams has seen his recruitment blow up in recent months.

The Nashville, Tenn., Archbishop Ryan class of 2016 four-star safety has eight offers to date, and more could be on the way. As soon as next week, in fact.

"On July 14th, I'm going back to Alabama," Williams said. "[Head] Coach [Nick] Saban wants to offer in person, so I'm going to have to go down there again.

Williams visited the Crimson Tide in June, and it's not the only return trip he will make in July. The rising junior will also go back to LSU before visiting Auburn and Florida State for the first time.

I look forward to it a lot," he said of going back to Tuscaloosa. "Coach Saban, he's one of the top coaches out there.

"You see him on TV all the time, and he's just a great coach.

LSU offered the 6-foot-2, 195 pound safety at its 'Bayou Picnic' in early June, and Williams said his relationship with the staff there is a big reason why he wants to return.

Of course, the Tigers propensity to send defensive backs to the NFL is a big deal to the four-star, too. He added playing at the next level is another reason LSU excites him.

"I have a really good relationship with [head] Coach [Les] Miles, [defensive coordinator John] Chavis and [defensive backs] Coach [Corey] Raymond," WIlliams said. "Those are three great coaches.

They send a lot of defensive backs to the NFL, and then they got a lot of thinks to look at and thing about at their school. It's a great program."

Florida State will host Williams for a camp, and the safety said it's a chance for him to show the Seminoles staff what he's capable of.

"I don't know if I'll get offered," he said. "I haven't got to talk to most of their coaches, but I know that they know about me.

I'm just going down there for camp and hope I have a chance to get an offer."
