All Even For Willie?

Highly-touted linebacker <b>Willie Williams</b> of Miami Carol City visited Florida State this weekend. How did it go? Well, Williams chatted with TheTerritory about his trip and was candidly honest about the positives and negatives. Click here to read Williams' thoughts and where the Seminoles stand in one of the country's best recruiting battles.

Willie Williams finally had time to exhale Sunday afternoon following his official visit to Florida State.

"The visit went real great. It was real fun," Williams told TheTerritory Sunday afternoon.

Williams, considered the nation's top linebacker, said he spent most of his time with FSU linebackers Ernie Sims and A.J. Nicholson.

"They told me to come in together with us and we will be great," Williams said. "I said, 'Let's do it."

Overall, Williams said he rated the visit "seven" out of 10.

Williams was candidly honest about his trip, also admitting he was unhappy at times.

"I was upset that my dinner (Friday) came late and I was the last person to be served," Williams said. "Also, my host was (cornerback) Antonio Cromartie and all the other players were paired with a player at their position."

Williams, however, said Saturday was "straight." He spend most of his time the second day with fellow Miamian Willie Jones, who missed last season following an Achilles tendon injury, in addition to Sims and fellow recruits Xavier Lee, J.R. Bryant and Aaron Jones, to name a few.

Williams added that several of the recruits said they want to play with him at the same school.

Williams said a highlight of the trip was when the players were introduced at Doak Campbell Stadium and had the opportunity to run onto the field.

Williams also credited FSU's coaching staff, namely linebackers coach Kevin Steele, and was impressed by the program's new facilities.

"The stadium was absolutely amazing," Williams said.

"It was great. We got to run out on the field after our name was called. I was so pumped up that I wanted to run out of the stadium while the others ran about 10 yards.

"I can't complain about the coaches. Coach Steele is real cool. My mother thought the trip was great also."

Of course, Seminole fans want to know where Williams stands in terms of recruiting. Miami and FSU have been considered the favorites, with the Hurricanes given a slight advantage.

Williams says that now has changed.

"I am open more now than ever," Williams said. "It's 0-0. This visit knocks it even again."
