RB Antonio Williams Profile

North Stanly High School [New London] freshman Antonio Williams left Clemson with a good first impression.

"It was great. I loved it down there," he told CUTigers on Sunday. "The facility was really, really nice. The coaches, I talked to them and got to know them pretty good. The team is, obviously, a good football team."

Williams spoke with his recruiter of note, tight ends coach Danny Pearman.

"We just had a normal conversation. He said that he was glad I was there. I told him I was glad to be there," Williams said.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound running back likes the hurry-up, no-huddle system run by Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris.

"I think it's the kind of offense I'd work best it. It's quick. The running backs are extremely involved. I think if I'm highly involved, I can make something happen in their offense," Williams said.

At least two more trips are on the docket.

"Saturday, I'm going to be going to South Carolina, for the Gamecocks," he said. "I'm going to go back to UNC when they play Georgia Tech. I may go on more after that. I don't know, though. Those are the only ones I know about now."

So far this season, Williams has rushed 220 times for 1,239 yards with 12 touchdowns. He's also caught seven passes for 135 yards and a score.
