Guard could see himself in Clemson

Official visit weekend No. 3 has been a hectic one for Los Osos High School three-star shooting guard Kendall Williams, who arrived in Clemson early Saturday morning.

Accompanied by his parents, Williams' arrived in Atlanta around 5:30 Saturday morning after taking off on a red-eye flight from the West Coast.

The family had enough time to check into their hotel and grab breakfast before heading over to Littlejohn for quick tour and meeting with coach Oliver Purnell before the 72-49 win against Virginia. Williams sat a few rows behind the bench during the Tigers' route over the Cavaliers.

"They really played strong and hard, got a big win at home against Virginia," he said. "Aside from the number of points and margin of victory, it was an impressive style of play, coaching and overall--it was impressive."

The students on hand for Clemson's 19th win made a favorable impression too.

"The student body was really into it, even when Clemson got up by 20 and was blowing them out," he said. "It was a great atmosphere to be in.

"I could probably see myself a part of it. It was fun to watch and see them. I just could imagine what it would be like playing under them."

After the game, Williams met with the coaches for dinner, where they talked extensively about recruiting.

On Sunday, he met with the program's academic advisor and strength coach and toured the campus. Before driving back to Atlanta tonight, he went to Purnell's home for a barbecue.

"(Sunday) was more insightful in getting to know coaches, the campus and atmosphere better," Williams said.

Before the season, he took an official visit to Marquette, but the Golden Eagles are no longer apart of the equation. Just weeks before the Clemson trip, he visited New Mexico.

"I'm just going to go home--kind of let the dust settle. It was an amazing visit. I had a blast," Williams said. "It just makes it that much harder. Like I've done with the previous visits, I'm just going to go home and evaluate things--really clear my mind up."

Once Los Osos' season is finished, he'll sit down and work towards making a decision (between Clemson and New Mexico).

"I'm going to make a justified decision based off the evaluation of the time, situation and go from there," Williams said. Top Stories
