The First Academy [Orlando, Fla.] junior will be in town with his parents and girlfriend.

"We're really excited for that," Williams told CUTigers in a recent interview.

Clemson hosted him for three days earlier this summer. After that camp stop, Williams visited Tennessee, Notre Dame, Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, Florida State and Florida.

In addition to Clemson, he plans to visit Florida State and Tennessee this fall. Those trips might give some insight as to which schools are his leaders.

"I wouldn't say I have any favorites right now, because I'm still trying to take in everything," Williams said. "But some schools I've been looking at repeatedly now, just because of how long they've been recruiting me.

"They would probably be Clemson, Tennessee and Florida State, as of right now. But that's not ruling out any other school by any means."

By this time next year, Williams hopes that he's committed.

"I want to make a decision next spring or next summer, so I can focus on my senior year and not have to worry about recruiting," he said.

During his junior year, Williams will play defensive end and running back in The First Academy's Wing-T attack.

"We don't use the tight ends at all, so I'll be playing fullback and wing," he said. "My goal is to have multiple 100-plus yard rushing games, several 100-yard rushing games…I want to get 15-20 sacks on defense and over 80 tackles."

As a sophomore, Williams had 80 tackles and 13 sacks on the defensive side of the ball.
