Williams hopes for summer decision

Garrett Williams has a long list of offers and is still adding some big ones, but he's hoping to wrap up his recruitment sooner rather than later.

"Stanford and Alabama have offered me in the last two weeks, so that's really picked up my recruitment lately," said Garrett Williams.

Williams also holds offers from Clemson, Auburn, North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida State, Ohio State, and many more, but he's focused on a handful of schools right now.

"There's probably about five that I'm really heavily looking at as of now. It's not anything official, I can still look at more schools, but it's really FSU, Clemson, Stanford, UNC, and Auburn," he said.

He's already visited Clemson several times and was at the Tigers' most recent junior day. He also visited North Carolina in the same trip. He's also quite familiar with Florida State because his father played there. He'd like to take a couple more visits this spring then narrow down his list.

"I've visited a few of them before, so I don't necessarily need to get back to them, but Stanford I really want to try to get to. It's kind of an expensive trip, but we might try to get out there. Other than that, possibly Alabama, probably round it up with those two," Williams said.

"I'm trying to get to places and narrow stuff down before spring football so I can make a decision in the summer."

The four-star tight end will be keeping a few key factors in mind as he works through the recruitment process.

"The main things are if I'll fit in there, if the system fits the tight end well, if I can get plugged into a church there and just what kind of guys they recruit," he said.

His family has also been giving him some advice.

"They're just saying to follow my heart and rely on God for the answer," he said.

While Williams is enjoying the benefits of his hard work on the football field, he's hoping to wrap up his recruitment soon.

"It's exciting, I'm just ready to know where I'm going so I can really just focus on high school and working hard in the weight room," he said.
