Anthony Williams - Profile

Anthony Williams was told long ago that he was the top defensive end on Georgia Tech's list for recruiting in the class of 2010. He attended Tech's Junior Day on January 31st but didn't quite have enough time to talk with the coaches.

So, the coaches asked him to make a trip back to talk more in depth on Friday.

"I got some one-on-one time in, mainly with Coach [Giff] Smith (his position coach). Basically, he answered all the questions that I had. We talked about the depth chart and about the defensive end position at Tech. He told me who they had signed and who they had and how I would fit in. He told me how important I was to them for this year's list."

So with the people in place at his position and people coming in with the 2009 class, what did Anthony think about all of it?

"Right now, I feel comfortable in that depth chart, and playing-wise I feel I could come in and have a chance to play."

Georgia Tech has led for Williams for quite awhile now. Are they still his leader and if so, why?

"Yes, they do lead. Mainly, I'm more comfortable with the coaches there. It's close to home. I know a lot about the team already."

Stanford, Georgia Tech, and West Virginia were the first schools to offer Williams. Have there been more scholarship offers added to the list?

"Yeah, then there was Auburn, Indiana, UCF, Vanderbilt and Oklahoma State."

With his offer count at eight, Williams is planning on visiting some other schools. He will be at UCF this Saturday and will likely attend Georgia's Junior Day over Vanderbilt's on March 21st.

What is the top thing Anthony is looking for when making his decision?

"Being able to play is very important. I don't want to sit behind someone for four years. Chemistry with the coaches is also very important to me."
