Another camp for massive o-lineman

Summer camps can give a player's stock a huge boost and that is exactly what has happened with Dothan (Ala.) Houston Academy offensive lineman Josh Williford. The big 6-7, 345-pounder picked up an offer from LSU and Ole Miss with a strong showing and then this past weekend he took his act on the road to Alabama.

How was his experience in Tuscaloosa?


“It went good but I didn’t get an offer,” Williford said. “I thought I was going to get one and coach (Kirby) Smart thought I was going to get one but they were recruiting me as a guard and they said they filled up there.”


Next up for Williford is a trip to Auburn on July 12 for a camp and that came as a little surprise because the Tigers just started showing more interest of late.


“They’ve been recruiting me harder since I got offered by LSU and Ole Miss,” he said. “They said they need to see me at camp and they’re so close to home so I really need to go check them out.”


Williford said that he is interested in seeing what Auburn is all about when he takes his trip but he did go into a little detail about what has caught his eye with LSU and Ole Miss.


LSU—“The coaching staff and just the way everything is set up over there. They are fully loaded again and their ability to play for national championships is something anyone would like. They seem to really want me too.”


Ole Miss—“It is close to my grandparents and I’d have a good opportunity to play early there. Their coaches are awesome too, just like LSU’s, and I think they will have a good program.”


As for decision day, Williford said that he has no date in mind but he does know when he would like to make one provided he is sure of his choice.


“I want to get it done before my season starts but if I’m not 100 percent sure then I’m going to wait until I am,” he said. “I don’t want to be one of those that chooses a school and then changes his mind. When I commit then I’ll know that is where I want to go, no question.”
