DL Roy Williams (6'3,270) has visited Central Florida and is planning to visit South Carolina on December 7th. Sandwiched between those visits will be a trip to Death Valley this Saturday to watch the Tigers take on the Duke Blue Devils.
Williams was considered to be one of the top prospects in the state of Florida coming out of high school two years ago.
Along with him will be Clemson verbal commitments Kelvin Morris and Brandon Jamison, as well as DeMarcus Johnson, another big time defensive line prospect.
Williams currently has offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Central Florida, and Tulsa, but he orginally signed with the Florida Gators out of high school. Florida is not considered to be in the recruiting equation at this point.
Williams saw his season end a bit early this year due to a torn ligament on his left hand. Up to that point he had registered 35 tackles and 3 sacks through the first 4 and half games. The injury will not interfere with him once he arrives at his school of choice.
Williams, considered to be a powerful football player with good quickness, is currently ranked as the #100 junior college prospect in the country.
DE DeMarcus Johnson (6'4, 280), Williams' roommate, will also be onhand this weekend in the Valley. This 6'4, 280 lb. defensive tackle is a menace on the football field and could provide immediate dividends on the defensive line if he signed with Clemson.
Johnson has been to Alabama and Central Florida so far, and will travel to Auburn the weekend after his visit to Clemson.
"He is a serious, dominating defensive tackle. He's a really strong player and most of the schools in the southeast are giving him a hard look." says SWMC Head Coach Dom Green.
Johnson was a lean towards South Carolina on two separate occasions this year, and then later to Auburn, but now admits that he is wide open. Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and Vanderbilt all were after him his senior year at Rickards High School in Tallahassee, Florida.
Johnson is currently ranked as the #24 junior college prospect in the country.
Both Williams and Johnson are December graduates and will enroll in January, meaning they will be available for the all important spring practice in April.
All in all, 4 prospects from SWMC will be at Death Valley this Saturday. Come out and support your Tigers this week!
