South Carolina LB in Contact with Gators

Jonathan Willard from Loris (S.C.) is one of the top linebackers in South Carolina. With offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, North Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina State and Maryland the 6-2, 202-pound linebacker knows he has a tough decision on the way.

"Coach Strong is the one that I am talking to down at Florida," Jonathan Willard said. "I do not know that much about them right now but I am trying to learn more. They have a very fast defense. I am more of a downhill type of player. One of the things that I am trying to improve on is my lateral movement."

The two teams that are recruiting Willard the most are Clemson and South Carolina.

"Expectations of the team, family environment and the unity of the team will be some of the factors that I use to make my decision," he said.

My Take:
It will be tough to get Willard to visit Gainesville at this point. It's a Clemson vs. South Carolina battle all the way.
