Does Duke Lead For Williams?

As the recruiting process continues to roll on for one of the top 55 players in the state of Georgia, the Blue Devils led by new head coach Ted Roof find themselves in the thick of the race to land this big time prospect.

"It [official visit] went really good," said Westlake (GA) linebacker Alfred Williams of his trip to Durham. "I had the chance to tour the campus and see the academic side of things as well as how the team interacted with each other."

Williams, who is ranked as the 54th best player in the state of Georgia, joined a host of recruits making their way to Duke last weekend for official visits. The 6-foot-2, 245 pounder is considered a big time target for the Blue Devils as Roof and his newly formed staff continue to mine the talent rich Peach State.

As a junior Williams logged 115 tackles with four sacks as a junior, before turning it up a notch over his final season en route to 127 tackles, including six sacks and one interception.

Before the weekend Williams had told TheInsiders.com that Wake Forest and Louisville were the teams to beat for his services. However the weekend in the triangle has changed his tune.

"Right now you can say Duke and Wake are my favorites, but I am also considering Louisville and Marshall. I haven't had a chance to visit them yet. I will take those two visits and talk things over with my family before committing."

Those two visits will come in the near future as Williams will trip to Louisville on the 16th before heading to Marshall the following weekend. All four of his finalists have offered full scholarships to the two star prospect who may see his rating add another star in the coming weeks.

So what's it going to come down to for Williams?

"This has a lot to do with where I feel comfortable, as well as where my family feels comfortable," said Williams. "I'm going to take my visits and then sit down with my parents and grandparents and we'll go from there."
