Canes in top 3 for DL

Miami offered this defensive lineman a few months ago, and they're currently in his top three. CanesTime caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Miami was the first BCS scholarship offer for Arthur Williams a couple months ago. He's since been offered by Florida State, in addition to East Carolina.

Williams, 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds, talked about the top schools on his current list of favorites.

"I like South Carolina number one and then Miami and Florida State and then Georgia," Williams said. "I might commit this summer."

Despite having offers from the two Florida schools, one school still stands out over the rest.

"I am 90-percent sure that I want to attend South Carolina," he said. "I want to be one of the top defensive tackles in the nation and I want to beat Jadaveon Clowney's records at South Carolina. He's my idol."

Williams has been on Miami's wish list for a few months now, and he talked more about his relationship with the Hurricanes.

"I've been talking to Coach Scott and Coach Golden," he said. "They've been telling me about the legacy over at Miami."

Williams, who has already visited Miami, still seems most impressed with USC.

"I like their football facility. The business program there is my favorite part of the school. Plus, it's a winning program. I love the coaching staff, and Coach Spurrier puts people in position to make plays."

While the Hurricanes offered Williams and are currently in his top three, it appears as though it's going to be an uphill battle for anyone to catch South Carolina here.
