You made it up to Clemson for the spring game?
Williams: Yes, sir. I was there.

How did it go? Did you have a good time while you were up there?
Williams: Yes, sir. So far, it's been the best visit, the best visit for me this year, actually. I had a good time, me and Deshaun Watson had fun down there, talking with a lot of people and seeing what the future is.

What were some of the things that made it such a good time for you?
Williams: Just the atmosphere was good. Talking to the coaches, talking to the fans and just feeling like it's a place that I feel I can play at, a family atmosphere that I'm looking for in my choice in my school that I want to play for.

Which coaches did you talk to?
Williams: I didn't get a chance to talk to coach Swinney, but I did talk to coach Elliott and I did talk to coach Morris.

What were coach Elliott and coach Morris saying to you?
Williams: Coach Elliott was just saying, keep working hard and keep doing what I'm doing. If I end up coming to Clemson, then I can definitely play. I'll definitely be put on the field as soon as possible. That's my choice. Coach Morris, he's the offensive coordinator. He calls plays. He was telling me that he can get me the ball and put me in the best position to make plays for the team, and a real hope that I end up going to Clemson.

Where all have you been this spring, besides Clemson?
Williams: I've been to Clemson. I've been to South Carolina. And I've been to Georgia.

Do you have any other plans?
Williams: I'm trying to see if I'm able to go to Alabama this Saturday for their spring game. I'm trying to work that out. If I do end up going, I'll be sure to let everyone know that I'm going to [Alabama]. But, if not, I'm not sure yet if I'm going to be there yet. I'm trying to get it worked out.

How about favorites? Where do things stand? Do you have any kind of a list going on?
Williams: I don't have a list, but it's all open right now. I've been impressed -- this year, Clemson is the best I've seen this year. I'm liking them. I just hope everything can work out.

You were committed to Georgia in the past. Do you have any idea, as far as what you want to do in making a commitment in the future? When you want to do that, kind of a timeline for that?
Williams: Probably, after my senior season in football is over…I'll let everyone know. I'm just trying to get ready, trying to graduate early and go in and start working hard so I'll be ready for the upcoming 2014 season, and getting ready to play on the next stage as a freshman.

So you're definitely graduating early from high school?
Williams: Yes, sir.

When you're working through the process for these next few months, what are some of the main factors you'll be considering in a school?
Williams: A family atmosphere is one of them. A place where I feel I can get a good education. Somewhere that I think will get me prepared for the next level. Somewhere I can play early. Somewhere I can relate to the coaches. And just a team atmosphere.
