Andrew Williams, one of the best junior defensive ends in the country, worked side-by-side with his primary recruiter Marion Hobby at Tuesday's Dabo Camp.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound defensive end from Eagles Landing Christian Academy [McDonough, Ga.] was in Clemson for the first-time since the February Junior Day.

"It went great. I got to work with my recruiting coach, coach Hobby, the defensive ends coach," he told CUTigers on Wednesday.

"It was great working with him. I got to know a little bit more how he runs his d-ends. What I experienced in one day, I know why the Clemson d-ends are what they are, because of the coaching."

Williams had already developed a solid relationship with Hobby, but he hadn't worked on the field with the Tigers' second-year assistant.

"On the field, he gets after it. [Makes] you do it right, a real coach -- the type of coach I can work for. Off the field, he jokes around. I appreciate that," Williams said.

Hobby gave him plenty of feedback, which Williams appreciated.

"He said he loved what he sees. He saw that I need to work on the pass rush off the edge. I have great hands, he said, but I need to trust my speed more," Williams said.

Also this week, he'll camp at Florida at Florida State.

Clemson, Boston College, Florida State and Missouri have offered.

"I don't have any favorites right now, but I'm starting to like a lot of schools, like Clemson, Florida and FSU," Williams said.

He hopes to narrow his list down after the summer, or after his junior season.

"Right now, I'm just trying to experience all I can," Williams said. Top Stories
