Willie Williams talks to The recruting expert Jamie Newberg about his official visit to Auburn

Willie Williams is quite a character. He certainly has the personality of a big-time linebacker recruit and after his football days are over, he may have a career in television. Williams was very boastful about his visit to the Plains and he had nothing but great things to say about his trip to Auburn.

"Last week it was lobster tails and steak at Florida State and this week it was ribs and shrimp at Auburn," Williams said with a giggle. "I had a great trip. Auburn was awesome. I love the team unity. I mean those guys do everything together. Everything. Junior (Rosegreen) was my host and he showed me a real good time. They are losing their top two linebackers and I know I can go in there and make a move next season. I also love the coaches, especially Eddie Gran. He is great and so is coach Tuberville. I feel like my pipe is about to burst."

Williams, the top rated linebacker prospect in the country, is from Miami (Fla.) Carol City. Last week he said that Miami and Florida State were his two front runners. Now you can add a third team to the mix.

"Everything is just so overwhelming right now. I think it's safe to say that Auburn is right there with Miami and Florida State. All three lead. This is getting hard."

Williams is scheduled to visit Miami this weekend and Florida on the 30th.
