The 2014 prospect is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 31 defensive end in the country. Hobby thinks a little more highly of him.

Williams learned that during a conversation over the phone after Hobby's trip by the school.

"He just reassured me that I'm his number one. He's waiting on me [to commit]…if I don't come, it would be weird for him to try to find somebody. He tried to send me through that guilt trip a little bit. It's always nice seeing and talking to coach Hobby, catching up in person or like that last phone call," Williams told CUTigers last week.

Hobby has been after Williams since the spring of his freshman year at Eagles Landing Christian. That's when a Clemson offer was sent his way.

"It shows commitment on his part, loyalty. I guess he's trustworthy, if anything," Williams said.

This spring, Williams visited Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia and Georgia Tech. He'll hit the road this summer.

"This summer, I plan on visiting Clemson, Tennessee, LSU [and] Oklahoma," he said.

With offers from all across the country, Williams is still open to everyone. He'll narrow that down soon.

"I'm actually going to come up with a top 10 in the next few weeks," he said.

The list will undergo another round of cuts after taking those four visits this summer.

Williams would like to make a commitment before his senior season begins.

As a junior, he had 60 tackles, 18 sacks and 10 tackles for loss.
