BAINBRIDGE - It was a good Friday night to be Nick Williams.

If beating 1-AAAA rival Lee County 40-7 wasn't enough, Williams was crowed Homecoming King at Bainbridge.

"It was exciting and a good experience," Williams said of the honor. "But it was our first region game, so I couldn't let that effect the way we played during the game."

Williams being committed to Georgia effected Kirby Smart's recruiting, either. Alabama's assistant is still on the prowl – trying to get Williams to take in a Crimson Tide game this fall.

"I still hear from Alabama a lot," Williams admitted. "Kirby congratulated me on the commitment to Georgia. He's a good friend of mine. He still wants me to come to a game."

Williams indicated that it would be difficult to make it to Tuscaloosa, however.

"I think Georgia knows that's where I want to be," he said. "I have thought about going over (to Alabama for a trip) – I have talked with my dad about it, but I am with Georgia."

With Bama as the lone exception, Williams said teams have seen that he's committed to the Dawgs and, for the most part, backed off.

"I think people have seen that I am committed," he said. "You don't give a man your word and then back off it. I know some guys commit and it doesn't mean as much to them. I just want to enjoy my senior year and not worry about recruiting."

Williams will be back to Athens at least once, probably twice before the New Year.

"I'm going to take my official visit to Georgia in December – probably early December," he said. "I might go to Troy game, but that's a long trip up there after a game."

As far as his future in Athens – Williams is sure it will be on the defensive side of the ball – just not sure at what spot.

"They have talked with me about possibly playing safety or outside linebacker, but I know that I don't want to go the quarterback route," Williams said with a chuckle.
