It was the second Clemson trip of the spring for North Stanly High School freshman Antonio Williams.

"I really liked it up there. I talked to all the coaches, coach [Tony Elliott, coach [Danny] Pearman and the defensive back coach/cornerback coach [Mike Reed]. I didn't get to talk to coach [Dabo] Swinney, but I did talk to everybody else. I really liked it up there," he told CUTigers in a recent interview.

Was there any special message from Elliott?

"Coach Elliott, he was just talking to me about how their offense was, then he started picking on me about my hairstyle, just adding a little humor to the conversation."

The 5-foot-11, 186-pound prospect last visited Clemson for the March Junior Day.

"This was the best visit [to Clemson], because I did get to interact more with the people I wanted to interact with," Williams said. "Then, I got to see all the academic places and the buildings where I'll be, if I do go there."

Though he didn't stick around for the entire game, Williams has already gotten a good glimpse of the Clemson offense.

"I left at halftime. I really liked the way their offense is. I like the up-tempo. I feel like I could fit in at running back in that type of offense," he said.

Williams finished his freshman season with 1,516 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns.
