Despite that pledge, however, Williams has made it a point to get out and see what other schools have to offer so he can have something more to compare the Tar Heels to. Last weekend Michigan definitely showed it has a lot to offer as well.
"I just wanted to experience the Big House," Williams explained. "Our conditioning coach is always singing fight songs, but I hear him singing the Michigan fight song a lot. He is always telling to go and visit Michigan because it is a great school to go and see. I have visited other stadiums before, but as soon as I walked in, it was huge. To hold that many people is unreal! It was great to be a part of that atmosphere. Ann Arbor is a beautiful place; the people greet you so well just like one big family."
There were many things that stood out to the dual-threat signal caller during the visit, but two of them resonated most.
"Having Denard Robinson as my host stood out big for me," said Williams. "What I remember about me and his conversation is Denard telling me about the speech he gave the team. He said he told the team he would NEVER let his team down like that again and how sorry he was about the loss. He told them that next week he would improve and be a better player."
"At that point I was thinking how we are a lot alike. Both of us are very humble cats. He is someone I can look up to. Denard is all about business. This cat is going to lead them to a national championship. Michigan has two All-American quarterbacks in Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner. It felt good just to be in the same room with both of them. They know the game of football. We had fun together. Those are two real cool guys that I had a good time with."
The other aspect of the visit that left a lasting impression came when the recruits met in the Junge Family of Champions Center after the loss to the Spartans. While there they heard a nice speech from someone Williams was surprised to see address them.
"We walk into the Junge Center to chill and then the AD David Brandon starts talking to all of us in the room," Williams recalled. "He told us it would be an honor if we came to play football for The University of Michigan. Mr. Brandon told us that the rumors that Coach Rod will not be there if doesn't win a certain amount of games… that we should not listen to them. He told us that Coach Rod will be here with me a long time and will win a national title here sooner or later. To listen to the AD talk with us about Michigan football, it let all of us know just how bad they really want us. That usually doesn't happen with the AD speaking like that to us."
The visit experience was capped off fittingly Sunday when Williams had the opportunity to sit down with the head man himself, Coach Rich Rodriguez.
"It was great to talk to him," Williams stated. "He told me he was glad I was a part of that game and that it was good to meet face to face. Coach was not trying to put any pressure on me to come to Michigan and that was cool. Coach Rod just said, ‘I know how much you want to play in front of over 100,000 people.' I enjoyed meeting with him".
Despite Williams' consistent assertion that he is "committed to North Carolina," the uncertainty down in Chapel Hill just may have given the Wolverines a very good chance with him. Time will tell just how good.
