McWilliams Plans Official Visit to Lincoln

Lovejoy (GA) cornerback Rico McWilliams might not have a "clear cut" leader, but there is no denying that the Nebraska Cornhuskers sit in a pretty good position.

Lovejoy (GA) cornerback Rico McWilliams might not have a "clear cut" leader, but there is no denying that the Nebraska Cornhuskers sit in a pretty good position.

The 6-foot, 170 pound 2012 recruits says one of his first official visits will be to Nebraska in the fall.

"At this point, I don't have anyone else in mind when it comes to an official visit. All I know is I will be taking one of them to Nebraska," said the soon to be senior. "Where do I start? Coach Bo Pelini is a really good coach and the former defensive coordinator at LSU. He won a National Championship there, so I know all about him. He's really intense with his players and I like it."

A native of Louisiana, McWilliams not only knows about Coach Pelini, but also feels a connection with Coach Raymond.

"We have a really good relationship. He's from the state of Louisiana too, so we think like. He knows where I'm coming from. He's pretty straight forward with me and I like it," said McWillims.

Last season, he earned honors on both sides of the ball. Collecting six touchdowns on offense and snagging three interceptions with 35 tackles on defense.

"I'm working on my technique right now, just trying to be more of a complete player."

Lovejoy finished the 2010 regular season 10-0, but lost in the 1st round of the playoffs to Glynn Academy (8-4) in a defensive battle, 7-6.

"It was disappointing," said McWilliams. "Right now, my biggest goal is to get a state championship ring. It's definitely state title or bust this year. We need to win it all this year."

Rated the No. 39 cornerback nationally, McWilliams' offer list is growing almost by the day. The 2012 recruit is close to 20 offers.

"There were so many coaches this spring, it was hard to keep track. There could be more offers coming."
