Tigers Closing In on Fla DT

This massive defensive tackle says the Tigers are currently his No. 2 team behind FSU.

Ian Williams went to Saturday's Scout.com All-American Combine at FAU with 10 scholarship offers and after a strong day in one-on-one drills, that number should increase in the coming weeks.

"I had fun," Williams said. "There was a lot of good defensive linemen here and I thought I did well."

Williams, 6-foot-2 and 300 pounds, was a first team All-Conference pick as a junior last season.

"The way I can read offensive linemen is what sets me apart," he said. "I always know where the ball's going and I can make plays at the times I really need to."

The talented big man has nearly a dozen offers and lists six early favorites.

"I have a top six," he said. "Number one is Florida, number two is Clemson, three is Notre Dame and Texas, four is Auburn, and five is Miami. Florida and Clemson have offered."

Williams talked about what he likes about the Gators.

"They were the first to offer and are showing the most interest," he said. "They've been there from the beginning. It's a great place and the coaches are great."
