Williams had 10 total tackles and a scoop and score for the North team, which won the game, 38-21.

"That whole week was fun, practicing with all of those different guys with all that great talent," Williams told CUTigers. "It makes you better, to see where you're at, compared to everybody else in the state. The game was real fun."

He'll play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl in Florida later this month.

"The main thing is me playing with the other Clemson commits," Williams said.

He'll be joined by fellow Clemson commitments Kendall Joseph, Chris Register, Cannon Smith, C.J. Fuller and Jabril Robinson.

"I'm really looking forward to playing with them, because those will be my teammates next year, for the next four years," Williams said. "And I'm also ready for the competition level, because the North-South, that was just instate.

"The Offense-Defense, that's going to be a lot more competition, because there are people from all over the country, I'm just ready to compete with those guys on a national level."

Just how soon he'll call the teammates at Clemson is still up in the air. For now, nothing has changed on the status of Williams' greyshirt offer.

"We won't know until closer to signing day. When we find out if anybody de-commits or players go somewhere else. So we won't know for sure until closer to signing day," he said.

Regardless, Williams looks forward to signing with Clemson on the first Wednesday in February.

"I'm excited. I'm really excited. I'm more excited that I already got the whole process over with…I'm just ready to get up there, whenever I get up there," Williams said.
