DT Deshawn Williams Profile
Deshawn Williams wrapped up his lone official visit of the recruiting process this weekend, meeting with head coach Dabo Swinney in the process.
"He told me I could be a really big factor and help with this defense next year. He told me to keep working like I am now. He's ready for me to get here," he told CUTigers on Sunday. "He told me about Jarvis, and I'll be getting 99 this year coming up. He told me I can really be a big help with this defense coming in, if I work hard."
Williams, who's been rock solid since the day he committed to Clemson, spent time with several of the uncommitted prospects that were also on campus for an official visit.
"I talk to Phillip Dukes a lot. That's one of my main friends. I talk to him on a daily basis. I talked to Tony Steward a little bit, to see where he was at. He's a good guy. He's real big, fast, a good athlete that you want to have on your team," Williams said.
"Jeoffrey Pagan, I talk to him a lot. Stephone Anthony and Brandon Ellerbe, I talk to those guys a lot, too."
Saturday night's banquet was the most impressive part of the entire weekend.
"To see all the teammates, all the Clemson players up there, it felt like I was already on the Clemson team. It felt like a home," Williams said. "It was real nice to see Da'Quan [Bowers]. I talked to him a little bit, and Jarvis, talked to him a good bit. They talked about how fast it went by. They remember, just like yesterday, they were in our seats at the banquet, just ready to get up there and get to work."
The Scout.com No. 81 ranked defensive tackle is rated with three stars. He hopes to enroll in Clemson's first session of summer school.
