Williams Stops By Chapel Hill

Originally, J'Courtney Williams was scheduled to unofficially visit North Carolina Saturday for the Tar Heels' spring game. However, the fear of inclement weather led to a slight change in Williams' plans.

"While we were driving, Coach [Andre] Powell called us," said Williams. "He wanted us to come down [Friday night], because the weather might be bad for the game on Saturday. I think he just wanted to give us a little VIP tour."

Williams and his head football coach arrived in Chapel Hill around 11 p.m.. Once there, Williams was given an "intense VIP" tour of the football facilities, including the film room, the weight room, and Kenan Stadium. He also had extensive conversations with Powell and linebacker coach Tommy Thigpen.

"I liked [the visit], a lot," said Williams. "I really enjoyed getting to know Coach Powell, because that was my first time meeting Coach Powell in person – I've always talked to him on the phone. It seems like a place I can see myself playing at."

Despite the positive progress North Carolina has made, Virginia and Virginia Tech still remain as Williams' co-leaders.

After leaving Chapel Hill, Williams and company headed for Charlotte where they stayed the night a hotel. They woke-up at 6 a.m. and headed down to Clemson for the Tigers' spring game.

Next weekend Williams will attend Virginia Tech's spring game, and then attend Virginia's spring game on the following Saturday.

A 6-foot-4, 220-pound linebacker from Christchurch (Va.) School, Williams owns offers from Clemson, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.
