After attending North Carolina’s most recent junior day, Dameon Williams has inserted the Tar Heels into his favorite schools list.
“They’re in my top three,” Williams said. “Right now, it’s Georgia Tech, Duke, and North Carolina. Those are the schools that I’ve visited and I liked when I visited. To be honest, I have the best relationship with the Georgia Tech coaches.”
Williams, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound cornerback from Norcross (Ga.), doesn’t have a leader among the trio. He wants to return to all three campuses before assigning an order.
Including his three favorites, Williams has collected eight offers. Cincinnati, Iowa, Purdue, Troy, and Wake Forest round out his list.
With UNC in particular, Williams hopes to be back in Chapel Hill for a spring practice. However, nothing has been scheduled.
Due to its proximity, Georgia Tech has an edge in the amount visits. Being 15 minutes away, Williams has tripped to the school a few times. Meanwhile, he has only traveled to Duke and UNC once each.
Williams’s only impending visit is Wake Forest later this month.
After hearing positive reviews from former teammates – in addition to receiving an offer from the school – Williams decided to attend UNC’s Feb. 20 junior day.
“It was very nice,” Williams said. “I liked the visit. I liked just being able to see one of the North Carolina [basketball] games, because I’ve heard about it for a long time. I’m glad I got to see it for myself.”
Before watching the basketball team beat up on Miami, Williams toured UNC’s football facilities and ate lunch. Throughout, he conversed with Charlton Warren, who not only recruits Williams’s area but also coaches the Tar Heels’ defensive backs.
“He just said that when [defensive backs] get to North Carolina, you really don’t have a position,” Williams said. “It depends how he sees how you play and that’s where you end up on the field. He said there’s really no corners or safeties, because his guys have to play both.”
Williams plays cornerback for Norcross where he accumulated 60 tackles, 20 pass breakups, and four interceptions as a junior.
