Summer Decision Looms for Williford

Though the recruiting process is one that many prospects take all the way until signing day in February, offensive tackle Josh Williford is hoping he doesn't have to take his past July.

Williford (6-7, 345), who holds offers from Ole Miss and LSU, will take a visit to Auburn next weekend to finish out his summer camps.

The Dothan (Ala.) native will then visit Baton Rouge, not to camp, but to show his family the campus.

"I am bringing my grandmother to LSU on July 18," said Williford. "I want her to be able to see everything LSU has to offer. She has gotten a chance to check out Ole Miss, so I want her to see LSU before I make my decision."

Williford, who caught the coach's eyes at LSU Junior Day, received his offer from head coach Les Miles upon his return to Baton Rouge for camp in June.

"I have been talking to coach [Greg] Studrawa and coach [Josh] Henson a lot," Williford said. "LSU is just unbelievable. I really like them a lot. They just have everything ready and set up to go."

Of course, Williford has kept a close watch on the Tiger's 2009 recruiting class, one in which he could well be a part of.

"[LSU's] recruiting class is great so far," Williford said. "They definitely are going to keep things rolling."

While the Tiger's football program has Williford's attention, it's the LSU veterinarian school that the Dothan-native is even more intrigued by.

"I really like the vet school a lot," said Williford. "That is one of the main reasons I want to bring my grandmother to visit with me. I want her to see the vet school and everything it offers."

Expect a decision to come soon after Williford returns home from Baton Rouge.

"I would like to make a decision within that week after visiting," Williford said. "After that I feel like I will know everything I need to know to make my decision."
