Profile - Dameon Williams
With his junior season behind him, Dameon would normally be running track in the off-season. He has decided not to run track this year in order to devote all his time to his recruitment. “I plan on making a decision sometime between the end of the summer and before my senior year starts. I want to make the best decision possible.”
Dameon has already begun to visit schools. He was recently at Georgia Tech. "It was a great visit and I got to renew my relationship with Coach (Ted) Roof on the visit. He knows how much I like Georgia Tech and how much I admire him.” Dameon likes that Coach Roof keeps it real for him. “I couldn't ask for a better recruiting coach than him." A return visit to Tech will be in the works for Dameon. He hopes to visit Tech’s spring practices as well as their spring game.
Tech will be a school to keep an eye on as Williams’ recruitment moves forward. His Norcross teammate Jarett Cole will be a freshman at Tech this summer and Dameon likes the idea of keeping him as a teammate. “We talk about it and I think about it a lot. He’s a good friend and Tech is a great school.”
The recent offer from Tech brings Williams’ offer total to eight. Dameon also has offers from Cincinnati, Duke, Iowa, North Carolina, Purdue, Troy, and Wake Forest. Dameon hopes to visit as many of those schools as possible this spring. “I know in a couple of weeks I’ll be heading back to the state of North Carolina to see Duke and Wake Forest.”
His relationship with the coaches and especially his recruiting coach will be one of the main things Dameon will be looking at in making his college choice. "I'm sure a few other factors may arise but that is my main one.” Williams feels he knows what each school can do for him academically. “I just want my four to five years to be at a place where I’m comfortable with the coaching staff and players.
