The two West Hall recruits had been wanting to visit Georgia Tech for some time. "Our coach set up this trip and we made it today."

Kwon described the visit as a great time. "I really did enjoy my time down there." Williams especially enjoyed putting on the number four jersey. ‘It really made me feel good to put it on."

Coach Bryan Cook and grad assistant Steven Sylvester met with Williams when he arrived on campus.Sylvester had played for Coach Lotti at Union Grove. "I liked what they had to say to me."

The coaches let Kwon know that they would be watching him this season. "They have asked for my transcripts so I know they have a high interest in me. The interest is mutual." Williams hopes to play his college ball close to home.

Kwon hopes to camp at Tech in June. "I'd like to go to their camp. I am going to the one at Georgia later this summer."

Most schools are recruiting Kwon as an athlete. Williams plays both running back and defensive back for West Hall. "I feel I'm better at running back but I really enjoy playing defense."

Williams is beginning to hear from numerous schools. Cincinnati, Georgia State, North Carolina State, Vanderbilt, and Georgia are some of those schools.

Besides wanting to stay close to home, Kwon is looking for a school with a winning program and one where he feels comfortable.

Kwon knows his decision may come down to Georgia Tech or Georgia. Williams knows there will be peer pressure but he won't let that sway him. "The decision will be mine. I have to live it not anybody else."

Williams currently is 6'-190". "I have been timed at 4.4 but that was not a laser time."
